The Geniozz Tripod Beta Roadmap ... easy practical guidance
Our Tripod Beta training programs provide a simple and easy-to-follow ‘1-2-3’ approach to building Tripod Beta analyses. This allows even newly trained Tripodeans to apply the Tripod method for any incident or business disturbance, no matter its complexity.
As part of the training material, participants will receive their copy of the handy pocket-sized ‘Geniozz Tripod Beta Roadmap’, with 44 pages covering all fundamentals and easy practical guidance. This roadmap has proven to be a handy reference for investigators during incident investigation and analysis in the field.
The Stichting Tripod Foundation (STF) has created accreditations for Tripod Beta users, trainers and assessors.
The implementation of the (in this case) user accreditation is provided by Geniozz in the form of a 'knowledge test' on the last day of the Tripod Beta training. Note: this test only applies to the 3 and 4-day courses.
If this test is successfully completed, the participant will achieve the Tripod Beta Bronze Practitioner status.
For additional information about the accreditation process (Silver and Gold), we refer to the Energy Institute (EI) website.
The EI provides the secretariat for all accreditations on behalf of STF.
