Course Description:

Developed by the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), the WMD Awareness-Level Training Course is a six-hour training program that provides emergency responders with awareness-level instruction on recognition, avoidance, isolation, and notification techniques in a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) environment. The course covers prevention and deterrence and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) hazards.


Course Objectives:

After completion of the course, first responders will be to:

v demonstrate a working knowledge of the prevention and deterrence strategy, to identify indicators of potential terrorist targets

v understand recognition, avoidance, isolation, and notification techniques of chemical agents and toxic industrial chemicals and materials in a WMD environment

v understand recognition, avoidance, isolation, and notification techniques of biological hazards when used as WMDs

v understand recognition, avoidance, isolation, and notification techniques of radiological and nuclear materials when used as WMDs

v understand recognition, avoidance, isolation, and notification techniques of explosive devices when used as WMDs

The course is open to all Wyoming first responders regardless of discipline. Members of private sector responder groups may be eligible for this training as well.


Cost:

This training is funded by a DHS grant, which provides for the associated training site costs, and curriculum-related delivery expenses. It DOES NOT include the cost of transportation, meals and lodging. Agencies may be able to use their local DHS grant funds for any traveling expenses, but should confirm this with their grant administrator.
