We offer an extensive range of continuing professional development (CPD) short courses, many of which can also be used towards our postgraduate qualifications.

Our courses provide insight and knowledge to support accident investigators. Our Safety and Accident Investigation Centre has an international reputation for award-winning teaching, research and consultancy in transportation safety management, human factors, airworthiness and incident/ accident investigation.

Our work in aviation safety has been recognised at the highest level. We were awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2011 – the highest award a UK academic institution can receive – for research and training in aircraft accident investigation. In 2013, we were recognised by the Flight Safety Foundation for our sustained corporate leadership in aviation safety.

Our courses are designed for the aviation, rail and marine transport sectors - although, increasingly, they are also used by other safety-critical industries. We offer both short courses and an innovative part-time postgraduate programme (PGCert, PGDip, MSc and PhD).

Bespoke packages

We can create bespoke in-company packages together with your Human Resources or Learning & Development Managers to deliver technical and executive education tailored to the needs of you and your organisation. Leading organisations choose us to deliver inventive solutions to their real-life problems or enhance their operational capabilities through research and training.
