Two program tracks are available to prepare law enforcement officers with up-to-date explosives training and individuals who want to start, or advance, a career in the Unexploded Ordnance Industry. Both provide the most advanced explosives and ordnance training available. Explosives Training for Law Enforcement courses deliver specialized instruction for members of tactical response units, such as special weapons and tactics teams, and public safety bomb squads. Training addresses the use of explosives for tactical entry operations and advanced knowledge in identification and response to military ordnance calls. Ordnance Removal and Remediation courses include the first and only civilian UXO Technician I course certified by the Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board. This course provides participants with comprehensive, hands-on training in the safe detection, location, identification and disposal of unexploded ordnance using the emerging technologies of today’s UXO remediation industry.

Minneapolis, MN area responders that were dispatched to the bridge collapse on I-35 had been training and exercising in preparation for a large scale response for years. So when the I-35 bridge collapsed without warning with 160 people on the bridge killing 13 and injuring 121 others, they were ready.

I took many courses from TEEX-NERRTC over the years that helped me in the response.
