Weaponization of Chemical & Biological Agents

In this 10-hour distance learning program, former UNMOVIC weapons inspector Harvey Jack McGeorge provides a detailed examination of chemical and biological agents, dissemination methods, delivery systems, munitions design, and CB weapons production technology. This program is specifically designed to provide national defense and homeland security professionals with a comprehensive understanding of how chemical and biological weapons are designed and produced. 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.
