IED and Explosives Awareness Training

Extremist and terrorist employment of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) has increased the importance of a First Responder’s working knowledge of explosives and explosive devices. As the name implies, First Responders are simultaneously the personnel most threatened by, and best positioned to, identify IEDS.

Tactical Electronics’ IED/Explosives Awareness Training is designed to provide the knowledge and skills for First Responders to not only identify potential explosive threats, but also to identify the key components critical for determining response procedures. Attendees will participate in classroom lecture and practical labs designed to enhance their understanding of how IEDs function and practical exercises focusing on the identification of an array of IEDs, their components, and triggering mechanisms.
