eResponse Crowd Safety – a division of UK-based training and recruitment firm the eResponse Group – has announced that it’s now set to launch its specialist Level 5 Diploma in Crowd Science and Risk Analysis into the United States market.

The qualification, which is designed for individuals who plan and manage the movement of people at large-scale events and festivals, was launched by eResponse Crowd Safety in Australia last year, and has since seen over 300 people across the world attaining what’s considered to be one of the industry’s top qualifications.

The three-day course will launch in September with sessions in Fort Lauderdale and Los Angeles. It’s to be delivered in a joint venture with American-based business The Crowd Management Company.

Speaking about this development, Andy Hollinson (operations director at eResponse Crowd Safety) informed Risk UK: “Our Level 5 Diploma has been welcomed across the sector, and hundreds more people will now have the opportunity to gain one of the industry’s top qualifications in North America.”

Hollinson continued: “Since taking the Diploma to Australia, we’ve been delivering courses across the world, and so moving into the United States was the next natural step for us. It’s exciting to be partnering with The Crowd Management Company who share our passion for delivering the very best training and development courses possible. We’ve already seen a huge interest and enquiries for the two courses we’re launching in September from people across the States.”

Improving academic qualifications

Andrew McQuillan, director of The Crowd Management Company, added: “During my travels around the USA and having worked with some sensational venues and events, I’m always pleasantly surprised to see that professionals who work with crowds are always wanting to improve their academic qualifications in this area. It thrills me to bring the Level 5 Diploma in Crowd Science and Risk Analysis to the States as I know this is something that will really appeal to these professionals, and afford them invaluable knowledge when they’re considering crowd and public safety issues at events.”
