ANTITERRORISM - building design - crime prevention - security engineering

Antiterrorism Design Specialist Certification - Antiterrorism is the application of passive measures that reduce the effects of terrorist attack.  These measures must be in place prior to an event occurring and should provide a foundation for adding additional protection as the man-made threat environment changes.  This course provides the attendee with the skills necessary to convert existing inhabited spaces and new construction into spaces that provide trust and not fear.  Leads to award of the Antiterrorism Design Specialist (ADS)  credential.


Physical Security Engineer Certification  - With electronic technologies quickly converging in the physical security vertical it is paramount to understand first, the basics of physical security, secondly, how this new technology will effect the physical security landscape of the future, and thirdly, how the correct physical security environment can actually enhance the technologies effectiveness. Every good physical security program starts with assessing and quantifying criticality, threats and vulnerabilities. Students will use a variety of methodologies during a field exercise. The data they collect will be used over the next few days, as we spend time addressing mitigation strategies and best practices that are proven to deter a catastrophic event from happening and if that fails, reduces its effects on personnel and facilities. Leads to the award of the Physical Security Engineer (PSE) credential.

UFC – DOD Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings (UFC) – This course is available to all Federal, State, local government and private sector SECURITY and ENGINEERING professionals. While the course focuses on securing DOD assets, the concepts learned are prudent and applicable in reducing the criminal and terrorist threat to non-DOD buildings, as well.  Contractors and consultants seeking construction contracts with the Department of Defense will attend this course. The course is designed to familiarize students with the fundamentals of Security Engineering and antiterrorism related to protecting critical facilities from common criminals and acts of terrorism. Much of the course is dedicated to understanding and applying updated Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) and other current supporting security and antiterrorism related documents.  This is a DOD Certification course for those involved in developing mitigation strategies and building design review.

The 3 Pillars of Asset Protection -  This course teaches security professionals how to establish a policy framework for the implementation of the Command Security Program.  It includes instruction on antiterrorism strategies for the protection of people, overarching physical security requirements and law enforcement policy procedures for the safeguarding of personnel and property to include critical infrastructure and sensitive compartmented areas.  Significant emphasis is placed on the risk management process including design basis threat calculations, analytical thinking skills to ensure that program components complement, integrate with and support core command values.  Attendees will; gain knowledge of when to require prescriptive based compliance versus risk-based solutions; gain skills at resolving problems or conflicts between physical security requirements and other operational missions; gain the abilities required to assess baseline program vulnerabilities and correct them by obtaining funding for recommended protective options.

Security Concepts for Design Teams - Physical Security Design is a team effort.  Course materials are presented in three phases (Basic, Intermediate and Supplemental) and was developed for all stakeholders involved in the building planning, design and construction process.  Best if taken in sequence.

Physical Security Bootcamp - This course provides a basic understanding of the theories and principles for the application of physical security to protect DOD assets. The course focuses on physical security, the roles people play in the physical security program, and physical security planning and implementation.  In addition, it introduces the concept of security-in-depth and explores how countermeasures are developed and deployed to deter, delay, detect, or prevent attacks with active and passive measures, designed to prevent the unauthorized access to personnel, equipment, installations, materials, and information; and to safeguard them against espionage, sabotage, terrorism, damage, and criminal activity.  Geared towards those with less than 10 years work experience.


Physical Security Beyond Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (DSB) - Familiarizes students with design principles used in preventing and detecting criminal activity and reducing the effects of terrorist attack on the safety of personnel and damage to facilities and critical infrastructure. Students learn to use Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles to control the exterior of the facility while applying 5 basic strategies to the inhabited space.

Planning Electronic Security Systems for Buildings and Compounds (ESS) – This course was developed with the asset owner in mind.  Students will learn how to design CCTV systems for different types of secure areas, compounds and installations. Students will be able to design their own intrusion detection (IDS) and access control systems (ACS) for sensitive compartmented Information facilities (SCIF) and secure vaults, limited access or controlled areas, and high value storage areas. Students will ultimately combine camera systems with video analytics, with ACS and IDS.  This very interactive course has numerous case studies built into the curriculum that promote the understanding of ESS fundamentals.  Student will be able to implement ESS principles in designing and overseeing construction of a comprehensive and integrated ESS system.

Hostile Shooter Mitigation Strategies - Learn how to design high occupancy spaces for the protection of people from active shooter attack.

The Power of Security Lighting  – This class examines the relationships between theory, energy conservation, and social and environmental factors for man-made and natural light applications. Two full days focus on the effective use of lighting the environment to augment other forms of security technology. The effects of light on human physiological and psychological behavior are discussed in detail.

Designing for Forced Entry Delay/Resistance - Learn how to design resistance against force entry attack for new construction or retrofits for the protection of AA&E, biological/chemical weapons, controlled substances, high-risk personnel and sensitive information.

CBRN Protective Design - This course provides the fundamentals to prevent mass casualties through CBRN protective design for various threat levels (Low - High)

Protective Design for High Risk Personnel (HRP) - Fundamentals and advanced concepts for securing office and residential properties where HRP work and live stateside and overseas. 

Direct Fire  and Stand-off Weapons Protection - Course covers basic mitigation strategies against blast and ballistic threats especially in a deployed environment

Access Control Concepts and Entry Control Facility Design (ECF) – Like the Maintaining Control Workshop conducted by the US Army Surface Deployment and Distribution Traffic Engineering Agency, this class is intended for government, military and contractor SECURITY or ENGINEERING personnel involved in designing entry control facilities.  The curriculum focuses on the design features required for the effective and efficient operation of access control points at installation perimeters and controlled areas from a security design perspective. The curriculum includes, classification and usage, barrier selection, effective use of lighting and cameras, design philosophies, vehicle inspection and rejection capabilities, guard protection, visitor control centers, traffic control and geometric roadway design, electrical power and IT requirements.

Sensitive Information Facility Design and Construction (SCIF) – After attending this unclassified class, students will be able to oversee design and construction of a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) which meets official government requirements for a secure area where classified information is handled. The stringent physical security requirements; such as, access control systems, thickness of doors, the strength of concrete and the use of alarms, and acoustical controls which prevent eavesdropping, information exposure or “jamming”, and surveillance prevention will be discussed. The use of electronic media within the facility will also be explored. Unclassified but sensitive information covered.  Attendance upon approval.

Basic Safe-Room Security  for Public and Private Venues (SAF)  – A safe-room is a structure or protected area, that provides protection from man-made or natural threats, for both short and long periods of time. It usually serves as a fall-back position in case of emergencies. Effective design components; i.e., air requirements and waste management, capacity limits, use of electronic media and other technologies will be examined in detail.

Vulnerability Assessment and Risk Analysis (VAR) – Students will learn the difference between qualitative and quantitative risk analysis. They will use a variety of methodologies (including MSHARPP & SME3R [asset owner's point of view], CARVER [aggressor's point of view], ABRA [combination] & CAIRA [analysis of energy systems supporting critical assets]) to evaluate single or multiple buildings and critical infrastructure nodes. This class is very “hands-on” with numerous field exercises assessing lighting, electric systems, drinking water, perimeter.  They will be able to write a comprehensive report detailing their findings in a clear and concise manner, so that decision makers can allocate funding and resources effectively.

Interagency Security Committee: Risk Management Process and Physical Security Guidelines (ISC)  - The Interagency Security Committee (ISC) developed the ISC Risk Management Process to ensure that security becomes an integral part of the planning, design, and construction of new federal office buildings and major modernization projects. The criteria considers security in all building systems and elements.  In this 3-day workshop we cover the risk management process for federal facilities and security industry best practices in protecting property and people.  Attendees will learn how to use the Facility Security Level (FSL) matrix and Risk Assessment Database to identify the appropriate level of protection, determine effective protection options and express their findings to decision makers.  Secrets to requesting and receiving funding also discussed. 

Drills and Exercise Planning and Development  (DEP) – Geared for those who must evaluate training plans, drills and other operational factors during extreme conditions. A series of table-top and field evaluations are designed and tested. Exposes students to DOD Combat Training type stress.  Upon completion student will be able to design, development and conduct live, virtual and constructive (LVC) drills and exercises that conform to the Post Katrina Management Reform Act (Public Law 109-29, Oct 4, 2006).  If you are just checking the box for compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) then this class is not for you.  If, on the other hand, you want to exceed CFR requirements then you should attend. 

Security Criteria Development: Exceeding DHS/DOD Guidelines (SCD) – This course focuses on writing criteria for antiterrorism, continuity-of-operations (COOP) and resiliency, information security, physical security, operational security plans and operating procedures to meet Federal, State and local government requirements. What should be included in each type of plan is discussed in detail. Students will learn how to translate company policy into the five functional areas of every good plan. They will also learn how to integrate security into every facet of an organization’s operation and create a “culture of security” that promotes safety and the well-being of personnel.  Students will take home templates for AT, INFO, PHY SEC, COOP and OPSEC plans that they have worked on in-class.
