The Kelvin TOP-SET 3-Day Senior Investigator course is designed for professionals and managers who may be required to lead an incident investigation team. This is an intensive course that teaches attendees the ideas underpinning the TOP-SET methodology, and the specific steps of the process of investigating an incident using TOP-SET. The course covers every aspect of investigating an incident including creation of the investigation team, formulation of the incident statement, planning of the investigation, gathering and storage of data, interviewing techniques, Story boarding, Root Cause Analysis and creation of standardised reports and SMART actions. In addition much time is spent uniquely, in demonstrating and discussing human behaviour in terms of both the investigators and those involved in the incident itself. During the course, the behavioural bias of investigators is demonstrated, along with the consequential pitfalls. Throughout, the ultimate responsibilities of humans in all incidents is discussed and debated.
