 NTSB Training Center Classes for March and April

The National Transportation Safety Board is offering several courses during March and April at its training center in Ashburn, Va.

GC101 NTSB Investigations: What Legal Professionals Need to Know
March 5-6
This course will provides legal professionals with foundational knowledge needed to advise clients about the statutory framework that defines NTSB investigations, and the regulations, rules and practices NTSB follows in conducting its investigations. Presentations will also provide key information about what NTSB investigators consider important in critical phases of an investigation, such as investigative hearings and party submissions. This course will also emphasize practical techniques when engaging with NTSB investigators in charge and protecting proprietary information while permitting the NTSB to complete its safety mission. The session will also include a detailed presentation regarding assistance to victims’ families as well as practice tips from outside counsel who routinely represent clients before the NTSB.

Because of the subject matter, registration for this class is limited to attorneys and other individuals that occupy a professional legal position only.
