Course Information


No one likes to think about the worse case scenario, but with incidents with five or more fatalities happening in the UK every six weeks, it’s essential to react with confidence and sensitivity.

You’ll learn more about the necessities of setting up a temporary mortuary, providing support to families and victim identification as you concentrate on the two essential phases, advanced planning and what you need to do.

Covering both during and after the incident, you’ll touch on subjects such as psychology, personal affects and DNA processing, identification and release.

Speaking from experience, our Associates offer a safe environment to share experiences with other delegates as you look at real-life case studies, acquiring  the skills to better manage an incident whilst minimising reputation damage.

Who is This Course For?
