23. NCBRT Training

I recently received the 2013 training catalog from the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training at Louisiana State University.  The NCBRT conducts 21 different counter-terrorism courses around the country, with all expenses paid under a FEMA grant.

Naturally, many people cannot arrange to attend these courses, so a dozen of them are also available in free, on-line versions.  ARES members in rural areas may be interested in AWR-117-W, Preparing Communities for AgroterrorismAWR-203-W, Citizen Ready: Pandemic Influenza may be of value to anyone.  Five of these courses, AWR-190-W through AWR-195-W were originally prepared for American Red Cross use.
