Introduction to Improvised Explosive Formulations
April 17 - April 19$1250
This course will familiarize emergency personnel with the chemical precursors associated with improvised/homemade explosive (HME) formulations, the scientific and improvised equipment used during the manufacturing process, the hazards surrounding chemical precursors and improvised mixtures, several of the most popular mixtures during various stages of manufacture, and how to safely operate in improvised explosive situations and environments. Furthermore, students will synthesize several real-world mixtures, conduct sensitivity testing of crafted mixtures, test and evaluate methods of desensitization, and finally witness the destructive power of these formulas on the demolition range. Our staff consists of current and former Bomb Squad & EOD Technicians, as well as HAZMAT/WMD Technicians, who have the operational experience required to provide this world-class, highly demanded training. There is no alternative for this course. As a first responder you are responsible for others lives, this course helps with yours.
