Thousands of people die in IED explosions every year. Cheap and easy to hide, virtually anyone wanting to cause great damage with little effort and without being present.
Many people working in executive protection or even event security take extensive courses in shooting, close-range combat and so on. But most attacks never happen that way. Do you have what it takes to prevent harm to you or your clients?


In this course you will learn the basics of how Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) are built and how they can be identified. You will learn to look beyond the obvious and should be able to search for IEDs as well as intentionally deployed devices that could be harmful for your clients such as bugs and hidden cameras.
