AWR-311-V: Small Vessel Security for Rural Communities
This 8-hour planning and awareness-level course is delivered in two 4-hour Zoom sessions. It is designed to aid participants in developing critical thinking skills at the time of a small vessel security incident, develop community partnerships with other government and non-governmental agencies that will be necessary to respond to a small vessel incident, and promote regional intelligence-gathering to keep abreast of current threats in this area, particularly through area maritime security committees (AMSC). The comprehensive cross-discipline collaboration and the scenario-based training environment make this mobile course a unique opportunity for rural communities across the country.
