Physical Protection Systems Training Course

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

CH2M HILL’s Physical Protection Systems Training Course* presents a comprehensive approach to physical security for fixed sites such as banks, industrial plants, embassies, and corporate offices. For more than 20 years, the course has provided training on the methodology developed for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to protect the sites, materials, and components that make up the DOE weapons complex.



This course is designed for a wide variety of personnel and provides valuable training for those involved in managing, operating, maintaining, designing, analyzing, or testing security systems. Past attendees have included corporate security directors, security system managers, design engineers, guard force members, and maintenance and procurement personnel. All have credited the course with improving their job skills.



The Physical Protection Systems Training Course is a 40-hour course. Designed for a wide variety of participants, the 5-day course provides interactive training on a proven methodology for determining system objectives and designing integrated security systems incorporating the latest in security system technologies. Hands-on computer use is also included to train participants in the analysis of existing or proposed security systems using proven computer models, which are valuable tools for selecting the most cost-effective solution for specific security needs. Subgroup sessions allow participants a hands-on opportunity to apply the material covered in the preceding lecture and interact with fellow students from diverse backgrounds. We neither endorse nor represent any vendor, but instead offer an unbiased, systematic approach to determining security system objectives, understanding the principles of operation of the various equipment available and selecting the correct device for your application, and analyzing with proven computer models the relative effectiveness of proposed systems before you spend money on new equipment.

The manual used as the basis for the course is “The Design and Evaluation of Physical Protection Systems” by Mary Lynn Garcia, who attended our course in 1995.
