In cooperation with Signature Science, LLC, Guardian Centers offers the CWA/HME Small Scale Production Course. Students will gain insight into the behaviors and qualities of chemical and explosive threat agents and recognize the requirements for production and detection of threat agents. The week is structured to reinforce basic concepts, threat agents, production/weaponization considerations and field/laboratory analysis techniques. Hands-on practicals are intended to reinforce lecture topics. A 1-Day FTX will reinforce and evaluate mastery of technical learning objectives in a realistic setting.
