Blast Resistance for Anti-Terrorism Course Summary:
Our foundational course, the Blast Resistance for Anti-Terrorism course has been taught multiple times since 2008 to hundreds of students from government and industry. To accommodate the preferences, budgets and valued time of our prospective students, we have updated and reformatted our Blast Resistance for Anti-Terrorism short course into web based modules. The webinar is divided into (5) 1 to 3-hour focused modules. This series is up to date with the latest DoD UFC 4-010-01, GSA guidelines, VA criteria, and industry criteria and will provide guidance for implementing the blast design provisions of these criteria by providing additional context, explanation, and interpretation of the code language. Simple example problems will also be included to aide in understanding the practical application and implementation of blast design requirements in real structures.
The webinar modules are ideal for engineers, architects, and physical security professionals who seek to enhance their knowledge of blast loads, design criteria requirements, design approaches, and analysis methods. The modules were recently presented by our experienced engineers in October 2018. However, firms and individuals can register NOW to view recordings for any or all of the modules. Course notes are included in the registration. The recorded webinar modules are available to individuals and firms for a limited time (up to 30 days) after the registration to allow for complete control and flexibility in viewing lessons and the ability to revisit lessons as needed. Certificates of training completion for professional development hours will be provided.
