The course is developed and delivered by Subject Matter Experts (SME) from U.S. Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration. Training is conducted through classroom lectures followed by demonstrations and training on board of maritime assets for total duration of five (5) days. Practical training is conducted in small groups to maximize direct learners interactions.

The performance objective of the course is to be achieved by the sequence of the following learning steps:

  1. Understand the principles of operating radiation detection equipment;
  2. Understand the planning process of maritime search;
  3. Operate radiological search equipment in maritime environment;
  4. Execute emergency response search in maritime environment.

The course aims to provide to all combatants / first responders (SOF and conventional warfare personnel) involved in Maritime Operations basic knowledge and skills in delivering necessary pre-hospital care with limited equipment and in confined spaces. Furthermore, critical and essential skills will be taught so as the first responders will be able to assist medical personnel to provide more complicated medical assistance and deal effectively with a mass casualty situation.

The content of the course can be delivered outside NMIOTC premises up to Depth of Knowledge 200 (Understand).

The IED, as an established explosive threat to military and other operations, will undoubtedly continue to feature as a weapon of choice against our forces and populations in the future as it does now. Past and current experiences have clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of the IED in all types of situation, including at sea and in ports, where the accepted concepts of IEDD and Force Protection are being challenged in order to better combat the IED threat and provide responses capable of returning the situation to normal as safely and competently as possible.

In order to better understand how to conduct M-IEDD operations in the Maritime Operating Environment the challenges and limitations imposed by the environment have to be considered and understood. In pursuing a viable concept to apply to M-IEDD operations, accepted principles of operation and best practices developed over many years in the land domain cannot be set aside by those with maritime jurisdiction, but rather they must be considered and then employed to underpin a M-IEDD concept for the development of Techniques Tactics and Procedures (TTPs), as appropriate.

Furthermore, NMIOTC has developed this course in accordance with NATO standards and guidelines aiming at mitigating the IED threat focusing mostly on the “Defeat the Device (DtD)” line of effort which is a critical supporting function necessary to preserve the Alliance Center of Gravity (CoG) by minimizing casualties. This M-IEDD Course intends to cover the decisive condition in order to respond to operational requirements to provide IEDD training capability to all Nations and Partners.

This course aims to educate and train qualified EOD personnel to competently undertake M-IEDD operations on-board vessels and other maritime infrastructure in support of C-IED or other Maritime Operations.

On completion of the Course, students will be able to:

  1. Understand the IED threat in the context of maritime and related operations and how the basic principles of IEDD can be successfully applied to task resolution.
  2. Understand the core and specialist subject knowledge including: specialist skills and render, safe techniques in support of M-IEDD.
  3. Understand the significance of the related subjects of search and site exploitation (e.g. evidence preservation and collection, considerations during M-IEDD tasks).
  4. Plan M-IEDD operations, including: task appreciation, appraisal of tactical considerations in respect of the operating environment, M-IEDD team make-up, required resources, access and requisite on-board actions.
