Designed for First Responders and school personnel who may respond to school-based incidents. Course methodology includes study text, multimedia participant activities. Participants who successfully complete the course earn 0.4 Continuing Education Credits (CEUs). Multiple resources on threat assessment, school security, and critical response actions.

Course Description:

Understanding the Threat discusses components of a school response plan including a bomb incident response plan. The section on threat and threat assessment includes warning signs of aggressive student behavior. Responding to the Threat describes the types of threats and defines critical actions for documenting and responding. In addition, types of incident scenarios, critical response actions for each type of scenario, and the factors to consider in determining the most appropriate evacuation action are defined and described. The concepts of time, distance, and shielding discussed in the module are applicable to a wide variety of school incidents. Recognizing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) explains the major components of an IED and safety measures to consider with a suspicious device. Developing Preventive Measures discusses the importance of prevention and mitigation. Prevention includes school security assessments and security measures that serve to increase security and safety. Mitigation is what schools do to reduce or eliminate risk and includes implementing critical components of a bomb response plan such as training and exercising the plan.
