Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP)

To reduce risk to the nation’s critical infrastructure, the DHS Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP) develops and delivers a diverse curriculum of training to build nationwide counter-IED core capabilities and enhance awareness of terrorist threats. Coordinated through state Homeland Security officials and training offices, OBP courses educate federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial participants, such as municipal officials and emergency managers; state and local law enforcement and other emergency services; and critical infrastructure owners, operators, and security staff on strategies to prevent, protect against, respond to, and mitigate bombing incidents. For upcoming OBP Virtual Instructor-led Training (VILT) please visit the online schedule and registration page here.
