WMD & The Intelligence Function

In today's threat environment, law enforcement and defense intelligence professionals are increasingly called on to gather and assess information about chemical and biological terrorism or suspected weapons programs. In this 13-hour distance learning course, former UNMOVIC Weapons Inspector Harvey J. McGeorge demystifies the complex world of chemical and biological WMD and provides effective strategies for identifying, collecting, and analyzing CBW information. 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.
