Explore NMT/EMRTC First Responder Training's curated selection of courses below, designed to enhance your skills and expertise in emergency situations.
The Drone Assessment and Response Tactics (DART) course provides emergency personnel with the knowledge and skills necessary to detect, identify, track, assess, respond, and report Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) activity. Participants are presented with information on the current UAS criminal and terrorist threat, analog and electronic UAS detection techniques, and response tactics to address this threat.
The Homemade Explosives: Awareness, Recognition, and Response course is designed to provide emergency first responders with the skills to recognize and respond to incidents involving Homemade Explosives (HME). Emergency first responders are presented with information necessary to recognize HME precursors, HME manufacturing indicators, and HME exposure indicators, and determine pre-detonation and post-detonation response strategies.
The Initial Law Enforcement Response to Suicide Bombing Attacks course is designed to provide law enforcement officers with the skills and knowledge to effectively interdict and respond to an imminent person-borne or vehicle-borne suicide bombing attack. The course provides participants with information on the tactics, techniques and procedures used by suicide bombers, safety considerations and response considerations relative to improvised explosive devices, and interdiction strategies for law enforcement officers.
The Medical Preparedness and Response for Bombing Incidents course introduces first responders who may be involved in the medical response to an explosive incident to real-world event case studies and research-based information designed to enhance the medical preparedness for and response to blast effects. This course includes a management and planning-level section focused on pre-incident indicators of bombing incidents, bombing incident scene safety and security, and resource management for bombing incidents.
The Prevention of and Response to Suicide Bombing Incidents course is designed to provide emergency first responders with the skills to prevent and respond to suicide bombing incidents through lectures, exercises, and live-explosive field demonstrations. Emergency first responders are presented with information on how to prevent, deter, and mitigate the effects of a suicide bomber along with active suicide bomber and post-blast response strategies.
The Response to Bombing Incidents, Residential (RBI) course trains emergency personnel of all disciplines to respond to the growing number of bombing incidents across the United States. This course guides participants through bombing response challenges, bombing threat response considerations, including evaluating threats when making evacuation vs. shelter-in-place decisions, and response priorities following the immediate aftermath of a bombing.
The Surviving Bombing Incidents for Educators (SBIE), mobile course provides educators (teachers and personnel working in school environments) with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform critical lifesaving actions in the immediate aftermath of a bombing incident. Educators are presented with lectures, discussions, and demonstrations on the hazards and injuries associated with bombings; these activities culminate in a series of performance-based exercises designed to allow course participants to practice lifesaving tactics, techniques, and procedures in bombing scenarios.
The Tactical Response to Suicide Bombing Incidents (TRSBI) course provides law enforcement tactical officers with the knowledge and skills to prevent and respond to suicide bombing incidents. Through lectures, discussions, case studies, and live-explosive field demonstrations, law enforcement tactical teams and law enforcement who routinely interact with tactical teams are presented with information on preventing, deterring, and mitigating the effects of a suicide bomber. In addition, participants learn to implement response strategies for active suicide bombers and post-blast incidents.
The Understanding and Planning for School Bombing Incidents course is designed to provide emergency first responders and school staff with the skills to plan and respond to school bomb threats and bombing incidents through lectures and exercises. Participants are presented with information necessary to recognize a threat and determine pre- and post-detonation threat response strategies, and develop actionable items specific to each individual's school needs.
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program Development (UASPD), mobile course provides emergency first responders with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop and sustain a drone operations program. This information includes determining whether an agency should conduct operations under the small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) Rule, 14 CFR Part 107 (Part 107), as a Public Aircraft Operation (PAO), or as a combination of both Part 107 and PAO operations. Additionally, the course presents information on sUAS equipment requirements, the development of standard operating procedures, and program requirements/waiver processes for sUAS operations under Part 107 and as a PAO.
This course is designed to give an overview of the modern theoretical understanding of explosives from a chemical and physical standpoint while enhancing the strength of that understanding through practical field and laboratory demonstration experiments. Basic explosive engineering material will be covered, including thermochemistry, explosive initiation, shock wave physics and explosive effects. Laboratory and field demonstration experiments on the EMRTC explosives range will reinforce classroom material.
