In 2021, the NCS4 partnered with crowd science expert, Dr. G. Keith Still, to offer the Fundamentals of Crowd Safety course. Dr. Still has developed and delivered training materials worldwide for over 30 years and is working with the NCS4 to bring this body of knowledge to the United States. The primary goal of the course is to educate practitioners on the essential elements of crowd safety and risk analysis. The course covers core crowd science and risk analysis tools and their application in planning and managing places of public assembly. For more information click here.
