Upon successful course completion, participants will be able to respond to a WMD/terrorism incident in a defensive mode and preclude the spread of a CBRNE hazard to the public and the environment. Major course topics include: assessing CBRNE hazards, predicting the likely behavior of CBRNE materials, effectively operating and communicating in a unified command structure of ICS, determining detection equipment and personal protection equipment (PPE) needs, performing emergency decontamination, and identifying defensive strategies for a CBRNE incident. This course provides the knowledge and skills needed to obtain certification through NPQS (ProBoard) at the hazardous materials Operations level (NFPA 472). The course is delivered using lectures, interactive participant activities, performance-oriented skills stations, small group discussions, multimedia scenarios, and an end-of-course written and skills examinations.
