Basic HME & Large Hide K-9 Course

April 11 - April 13

$1250

This improvised explosives course will provide you with the basic information required to keep you and your team safe. Students will learn to identify basic improvised explosives; the chemical precursors and equipment used in the illicit manufacture of improvised explosives, the hazards associated with each precursor, safe-handling techniques, and general safety precautions. Moreover, students will be exposed to peroxide-based improvised explosives (TATP & HMTD) formulations along with over 15 other types of formulations. The handler will have the opportunity to imprint their K-9 on all the formulations created during the course. Following imprinting, the formulations will be utilized in practical exercises, including a post-blast environment. The large hide portion presents explosive detection teams with scenarios involving quantities of explosive materials that are realistic and often used in real-world threats, but are rarely trained upon. Unusual K-9 behavior involving mass quantities of material is often misunderstood and/or misinterpreted, due to unfamiliarity. Students will imprint their dog on various types of mass explosives in a calm and controlled environment prior to participating in authentic scenario based practical exercises. Teams will be introduced to amounts of explosives that increase in quantities throughout the course and range from tens to hundreds of pounds. Additionally, issues encountered during imprinting or scenario events will be identified and every attempt to mitigate them will be made during course duration.
