NCS4 – Crowd Safety Course

Crowd Safety Course

Welcome to the online Fundamentals of Crowd Safety course. The principal lecturer of this course, Dr. G. Keith Still, has developed and delivered training materials worldwide for over 30 years. In an effort to bring this body of work to the United States, Dr. Still and the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCSā“) partnered in 2021. The partnership aims to address capability gaps in crowd behavior sciences at public assembly areas, sports and entertainment venues, and communities.
