C-IED Training | Ensuring Mission Success Through Relevant Training

ATOM’s EOD, C- IED defeat and search experts work with instructional designers and curriculum developers to produce courses tailored specifically to client requirements. Our training provides those with limited or no previous exposure to IEDs a foundation for continuation training and education, as well as advanced technical skills that progress to subject matter expert (SME) status.

Our proprietary knowledge management process makes certain that our clients get up-to-date training, with updates generated rapidly within receipt of new information.

We ensure currency and relevancy of courses by exploiting intelligence derived from enemy tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP). As soon as an IED or related complex event occurs, we reverse engineer, then build and replicate devices with locally procured components to produce the most authentic training aids possible.

Courses begin with theory but focus on practical, hands-on learning and include all training materials, including simulated devices and comprehensive delivery collateral.

  • Theatre and mission-specific training
  • Basic to advanced IED awareness for current and anticipated threats
