supervisory, command, and emergency planning staff who participate in traditional didactic and facilitated instructional techniques designed to study the London Subway bombing. 

Related support modules will review salient pre- and post-event strategic planning roles, lessons learned, best practices, and local policies related to identification of targets, explosive characteristics, and general pre- and post-detonation aspects of a bombing event.

This course is delivered concurrently with PER-233 and is facilitated by instructors possessing expertise in both medical operations and explosives.

Participants of the combined PER-233/MGT-348 will be assigned to the appropriate course based on their current duty responsibilities or emergency management/response roles within their respective organization.
