Interviews are an essential of investigating an accident and determining how and why something happened. Getting a witness to provide information is an important skill to acquire, and that includes understanding the psychology of the witness, hence a free course offered by Britain’s respected Open University may be of value to anyone trying to ensure the usefulness of an interview.
The course is online through the Futurelearn platform and runs for eight weeks from 21 March, taking about three hours a week. A certificate is available on completion which could be presented as professional development.
While the course is aimed at police investigations its principles equally apply to interviews conducted for maritime investigations.
Needless to say MAC will be on the course, so why not come and join us?
