Level 3 Fundamentals of Crowd Safety

"Keith’s Level 3 FCS gives a fantastic overview of the key aspects to crowd safety. This is a perfect course for people embarking on their crowd safety academic route, or people wanting a great refresher. The content is informative and flows well between each module. The assessment process is well thought out and ensures you have developed an in depth understanding of the subject matter. I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to embark on their academic journey, or people for whom academic writing is a scary thought."

There are 13 core modules in the Fundamentals of Crowd Science course. Each topic covers an aspect of crowd science, crowd dynamics, crowd risk analysis, crowd safety and crowd/event modelling. The course is an approved training programme from the International Institue of Risk and Safety Management and a Level 3 course accredited course  (Highfield).
