NTSB to Offer Two Marine Safety Training Courses for Marine Industry Professionals in FY-09

Accident Investigation Orientation for Marine Professionals (MS 301), will be offered October 7-8, 2008, at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, VA. The second course, Marine Accident Investigation, (MS 101), will be offered January 26-30, 2009, also at the NTSB Training Center, and provides in-depth exposure to NTSB investigative techniques and methods. This is the first time the Safety Board has ever offered either program as a stand-alone course.

The first course, Accident Investigation Orientation for Marine Professionals (MS 301), will be offered October 7-8, 2008, at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Virginia (near Washington, D.C.) and is aimed at mid- to senior-level marine industry professionals interested in learning more about the Safety Board's processes and procedures during a major marine accident and the role of an investigation participant or "party". This is the first time the Safety Board has ever offered this program as a stand-alone course.

The second course, Marine Accident Investigation, (MS 101), will be offered January 26-30, 2009, also at the NTSB Training Center, and provides in-depth exposure to NTSB
investigative techniques and methods. This course is particularly appropriate for in-house investigative and safety personnel employed by the marine industry. This is the first time the Safety Board has ever offered this course.

Representatives from the NTSB Office of Marine Safety will lead both courses, but other senior professionals from the Safety Board will serve as guest presenters on a variety of
relevant topics, including public affairs, research and engineering, and safety recommendations.
