Bomb Threat Management Planning
BTM MGT-451 7.3 Contact Hours
Emergency managers and law enforcement personnel.
The Bomb Threat Management (BTM) Planning course introduces students to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) risk-management process and the development of the BTM plan. The one-day course includes activities that allow responders to apply specific portions of the risk-management process and their newly acquired knowledge about bomb-threat management procedures to critique mock BTM plans. The course culminates in an experiential learning activity in which learners revise a BTM plan using the findings of the individual module learning activities and the knowledge gained throughout the course.
Below are some, but not all, of the critical skill sets learned during this training program:
- Correctly identify the key concepts from the prerequisite courses.
- Apply the DHS risk-management process.
