Course Information


In the wake of an emergency there is much to learn, but in this crucial time information and experience can be lost unless you have effective debriefing skills. The right training and approach is vital to achieve this. This workshop will explore how you can tap into organisational learning, both formal and informal, through good debriefing. 

Focusing on documenting what went well, what didn’t go so well and what can be done differently are commonly asked questions. When answered and actioned in a professionally developed implementation plan, lessons can truly be learned.
