Crowd Safety Training (The Square Metre Group) are proud to The Level 5 Award in Crowd Safety Management, an industry-leading Ofqual regulated qualification, which is new for 2020.

This course is delivered via our virtual classroom, enabling you to study from the comfort of your own home.

Our level 5 award incorporates all of the learning from our former Crowd Science and Risk Analysis programme which has been successfully delivered across the world to thousands of crowd safety professionals.

This course teaches event professionals the principles and applications of Crowd Science and Crowd Safety Management (CSM), drawing on over 30 years of experience and research by managers who are responsible for some of the worlds leading events.

During the course, delegates are taken through their own site/case-related issues and by the end of the three-day workshop they will understand how individuals and crowds react to and behave in available space in places of public assembly. They will also have explored the safety implications for designing and managing such spaces using the appropriate modelling tools and will be able to apply risk management techniques to the development of a robust crowd management plan.
