OBP Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) Awareness Courses - January
RDSTF 1 Agencies,
Please see the following schedule for January. Thanks to Billy for forwarding.
Background Information: Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP) Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) awareness courses provide basic bombing prevention information ranging from IED construction and classification to the terrorist attack cycle. All on-line virtual training courses are conducted with a live instructor, using the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) Connect feature. Participants can connect either as a HSIN member or guest (does not require a HSIN membership). VILTs are great for participants with time availability constraints as most classes are approximately one-hour in length and can be taken independently.
Additional Information: Classes are open to anyone. A FEMA Student Identification (SID) number and Password are required to apply. If you don’t have a FEMA SID one can be obtained by going to: https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid/register.
