We all received an extreme wake-up call after the fall of the twin tower in New York City. Unfortunately, it took a horrific event to bring this topic to the forefront of building design and construction. This six-hour online course was created for owners; design professionals, contractors and other construction professionals who would like to improve their knowledge of security and building design issues, techniques and trends related to homeland security implications for building design and construction. This course first defines the need for security issues during the design and provides participants with an understanding of the lessons learned from recent terrorist activities. Next, this course outlines the risk management process of threat/vulnerability assessment, security design principles and goals and provides participants with an understanding of the nature of explosive attacks. Finally, this course provides guidance for limiting or mitigating the effects of terrorist attacks on buildings and facilities.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
