This university award has been developed as a response to the changing legislation that governs the management of events providing expertise in the key areas of licensing and site design.
As a short course delivered over three days of face to face content with online digital content to support the assessment, this course provides a professional certification in events that can be used as a springboard to demonstrate compliance and to undertake further specialised qualifications at level 6.
To ensure contextualisation the programme is designed and delivered by industry experts that advise the government and the industry on how to design and implement safety within the active event space. All assessment is applied in nature allowing you to embed your understanding of legislation, health and safety and site design in a real-world context.
