Instead of boring people to death with theoretical information and Powerpoint slides, we teach the skills of investigation by facilitating an investigation into a real incident. Delegates are expected to gather evidence (including physical evidence, documentation, and witness statements), interview witnesses in some entertaining role-plays, analyse the evidence using a 5 Whys methodology to get to Root Causes, and formulate an action plan to address the causes.

This teach by doing method is what got this course several awards for Best Incident Investigation course UK in 2020 and 2021.

The NEBOSH assessments are carried out AFTER the training and are done in the delegate’s own time. The assessments are completely online.

The assessment consists of downloading some evidence relating to an accident and watching three witness interviews on video. The delegate must then critique the witness interviews (good and poor practices) and create a short report on the causes of the accident and recommended actions to prevent reoccurrence.

The assessment is submitted online and graded by a Compassa tutor. In the event the delegate is not successful, full feedback is given and the delegate is invited to re-submit an improved assessment at no extra charge.

The assessment fees are included in the price quoted for the course. There are no extra charges.

The delegate will be provided with full feedback from the course tutor. They will then be invited to re-submit an improved assessment at no extra cost.

We need a minimum of 3 people to provide some interaction and go the group-work. A maximum of 15 people is allowed due to the highly interactive nature of the course.

The price you are quoted is the same regardless of how many people you book onto the course. When you have a full course of 15 people, the price per person is incredibly good value.
