Save The Date
What: Face-to-Face course, Live Demonstrations
When: June 12-14, 2019
Where: Bend, Oregon - at Stone-OBL Blast Test Facility
Who Should Attend: Security professionals, architects, engineers, procurement specialists, and real estate specialists who have assignments or projects that involve providing protection against explosions, ballistics, forced entry, or vehicle ramming?
Learning Objectives: Understand how to protect against these attacks, and the impacts the protections may have on existing and new buildings.
Live Demonstrations: See first-hand how blast, ballistics, and forced entry attacks affect standard building materials and how they affect specially designed protective building elements.
This is not an engineering class filled with charts, diagrams and formulas…
We strongly believe that ‘seeing is believing’ and we have therefore incorporated live demonstrations of blast, ballistics, and forced entry. Students will be able to inspect the specimens before and after the demonstrations, to better understand the concepts presented in the classroom portion of the class.
This is a class filled with practical information, based on our years of experience, that students can use the minute they walk out the door.
This class is designed for professionals who work in high threat environments. Course material will include the strengths and vulnerabilities in traditional building construction types, pros and cons of available retrofits, an explanation of what a blast (or multi-hazard) vulnerability assessment is (and is not), steps to be taken to provide protection to your people and structures, and myth-busting of frequently misunderstood concepts.
We will walk you through understanding the implications of the different types of threats your organization may be facing, the dynamics of an explosion (as it relates to you and your facilities), terminology that is often thrown around during design and security meetings, and how typical building construction protects/does not protect against your threats.
We look forward to seeing you in Bend!
