Defense Against Anti-Vehicle Explosive Attacks

Over the past two decades, explosive attacks against motorcades have emerged as some of the most popular methods of assassination worldwide. Terrorists and armed insurgent groups in many parts of the world have also been increasingly adopting these tactics as a safe and effective means of targeting military personnel, supply convoys, and various civilian targets. In this three-hour distance learning course, bomb security expert Craig Gundry explores the threat of anti-vehicle explosive attacks and various proactive and mitigative countemeasures for reducing these risks. 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.
