Diploma in Crowd Science (Level 5 course)
In 2014 Keith joined the team at eResponse to develop the Level 5 Diploma in Crowd Science. This course (click here for more information) focusses on crowd risk analysis for planned events. Topics include how to avoid overcrowding in public space, how to anticipate and avoid accidents and incidents, the fundamental causes and prevention of crowd related disasters and how to develop robust crowd management plans. Delegates are encouraged to take their event plans to the workshop where we apply the principles and applications of crowd science to their own materials.
“A fantastic and beneficial course, it was the only course I had ever done where I was upset when it finished, the course provides a unique and mathematical approach to crowd engineering, the consensus of all who attended was that it provided us with the tools and confidence to do our job” Operations Manager. Sydney Opera House (2014)
“This course opens your eyes to the potential issues with Mass Gatherings. As well as providing an individual with the tools and knowledge to assess the event plans and proposed mitigation for major events. With the introduction of the Crowd Science Qualification it would be in your best interest to attend. The delivery and information provided is beyond reproach and glad to see the course in Australia!” CEO. Canberra Exhibition Park (2014)
"These courses were invaluable enabling me to illustrate quickly and precisely any issues that arose at the venues we attended and pass on my recommendations to the security team in a manner the was easily understood." Dave Wilkie, Event Safety Officer, U2 360 European Tour
“Keith Still’s workshops have focussed the minds of many people in realising just how easy it can be for disaster to occur, and equally how simple the solutions often are.” Eric Stuart, former Metropolitan Police Event Planner for Notting Hill Carnival and London New Year Events
