Incident Report Writing Workshop

May 17, 2024 | 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. ET | Live Online Training


Incident report writing is a critical skill to have as an airport operations officer a security officer or a police officer. Incident reports form the basis for a narrative of what occurred during a particular event. Along with incident reports, comes their close cousins, note taking, logbook entries and incident scene investigation and interviewing. In the aviation industry, there are certain reports that are required to be filed, such as aircraft accident or incident reports, and wildlife strike database reports.

Incident reports, your notes and logbook entries become documents that can be subpoenaed in court, and you may asked to give testimony at some point in time, either in open court, or in a deposition (or both). This could happen soon after the event, or possibly years later and the only frame of reference you have is what you put into your report.

At the end of this training you will be able to:

1. Understand FAA, NTSB, and ICAO regulations pertaining to accidents
2. Demonstrate the proper methods of writing an incident report
3. Illustrate basic note taking skills
4. Apply the principles of effective report writing
5. Practice basic interviewing skills
6. Explain the legal ramifications of report writing
7. Format a report using proper grammar, spelling and format

An additional component of this course is you will understand the requirements of other agencies during an incident, related to incident management, scene security and preservation of
evidence, and be in a position to better assist response agencies and investigators in the performance of their duties. Whether this is new training for you, or refresher training, the ability to write
clear, concise and accurate incident reports is critical to your job, and to the airport.
