OBP Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) Awareness Courses

OBP Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) Awareness Courses – May Schedule Open for Registration

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP) and the Center for Domestic Preparedness have partnered to provide bombing prevention awareness learning opportunities for first responders, public safety personnel, and private sector partners through Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT).  VILT courses provide basic bombing prevention information ranging from IED construction and classification to the terrorist attack cycle.  All online virtual training courses are conducted with a live instructor, using the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) Connect feature.  Participants can connect either as a HSIN member or guest (does not require a HSIN membership).  VILTs are great for participants with time constraints as most classes are approximately one-hour in length and can be taken independently.

Classes are open to anyone.  For more information and to register for a course visit the OBP VILT Schedule/Registration Page at: https://cdp.dhs.gov/obp.  Select the desired course and date from the listings and you will be automatically directed to the online application process.  Registration must be completed two business days prior to class start date.

For convenience, the May flyer is included below and as an attachment.  Please visit the OBP VILT Schedule/Registration Page to view a 90 day schedule.

A FEMA Student Identification (SID) number and Password are required to apply.  If you don’t have a FEMA SID one can be obtained by going to: https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid/register
