Bomb Threat Management

Bomb threats persist as the most common bomb-related problem encountered by organizations worldwide. In this two-hour distance learning course, bomb security expert Craig Gundry explores the procedures and options for managing bomb threats, evacuations, searching facilities for explosive devices, and responding to a suspicious object. The final exam for this course is administered online as a 20-question multiple-choice test. Upon completion of the test, the score is automatically graded and documented in the student's "My Courses" transcript (accessible from the "My Account" page). In accordance with S2 Online course policy, the student must complete the online test with a passing score of 80% or better to receive a Certificate of Training. If the student does not pass the test the first time, the student has one opportunity to re-test.
