  1. IED Awareness Course


    This is a very good introductory, entry-level presentation into IED philosophy, the usage of such devices and the threats. Strongly recommended for people who have no previous training/connection to IED threats and are going into IED High Risk areas, will give a good sum and explanations of what to possibly be on the lookout for. Brief course, to the point, good examples.

  2. IED Awareness course


    Fantastic for the person who is not familiar with IEDs,
    This course is straight to the point and well thought out.
    Well done to Victor.
