Entry Point Screening: Online

As demonstrated in numerous attacks worldwide, terrorists have been continuously developing and refining tactics for delivering hazardous devices through facility entry points. Even the best designed access control system can fail if the procedures used by security personnel are ineffective in addressing the spectrum of deceptive and covert techniques used by terrorists to penetrate entry points. In this distance learning course, force protection expert Craig Gundry unravels the methods used by terrorists and provides effective guidelines for screening and searching people and vehicles at access control stations.

Topics include:

Characteristics of Explosive Devices • Methods of Device Concealment • Bomb Delivery Methods • Bomb Damage Potential • Screening Human Entrants • Documents Examination • Detecting Behavioral Threat Indicators • Search of Hand-Carried Objects • Vehicle Inspection Procedures • VBIED Threat Indicators • Tactical Issues
