Certificate in Consequence Modeling

This certificate provides students with advanced concepts and features concepts and basic skills of DTRA CBRNE hazard modeling in an integrated function-centric approach.  Students will learn the basic concepts of radiation, radio communications, radio frequency, propagation, and optic modeling tools.  Students will also get the basics skills to simulate and assess the effects of CBRN weapons strikes and incidents.  Students will apply learning within the context of modeling, mapping, visualization, and consequence assessment using DTRA hazard modeling and assessment tools to gain an understanding of using overlay hazard areas on maps or common operations pictures and may receive in a class room environment be exposed to incident commander’s CBRN decision-making.

Certificate learning outcomes:

Apply knowledge of basic concepts of radiation, radio communications, radio frequency (RF), propagation, and optics modeling tools in a hands on training environment (ASSIST); OR apply comprehensive hazard or risk assessment process (GACA); OR simulate and assess the effects of CBRN weapon strikes and incidents (JEM)

Apply principles of research and evaluation to source materials, to identify, assess, and interpret them accurately

Construct consequence and contingency plans to meet both natural and man-made emergencies

Describe the future of the industry and the role that client protective services will play as threats increase

Synthesize and reflect upon knowledge gained upon certificate completion
