Course Description

The Terrorist Attack Cycle course is designed to help prevent a domestic terrorist attack by preparing participants to recognize terrorist actions in planning and preparing to execute an attack. This course provides training to assist emergency responders and other local stakeholders in analyzing existing security measures and formulating further strategies for threat mitigation. The course introduces the Terrorist Attack Cycle as a training medium using practical situational learning.

This course was designed in conjunction with ARTEMIS, LLC to teach participants how to conduct basic surveillance and limited surveillance detection the way our top tier adversaries do today.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements Terrorism & Homeland Security course #3320.


There are no prerequisites for this course.
