The National Improvised Explosives Familiarization (NIEF) program is a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) initiative to train bomb technicians, other first responders, and the chemical industry on the potential uses of common industrial and household chemicals in the manufacture of explosives. Students will receive instruction on explosive precursor chemicals, the manufacture of improvised explosives, oversight and tripwire programs, and the hazards of clandestine laboratories.
This course includes both classroom instruction and a live range demonstration of some of the explosive materials discussed in class. At the conclusion of the course, participants will have gained a better appreciation for and understanding of the hazards posed by improvised explosives.
This course is being taught by a team of subject matter expert instructors from the FBI and the New York State Police.
