Certificate in Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability (HPAC)-CBR


This certificate provides students with a higher level of proficiency in modeling and analysis of CBR hazard release using HPAC.  Students will learn to apply and demonstrate HPAC source term functionality, computation methodologies, translating, and communicating results. The CBR modeling certificate is designed to recognize and document the completion of a comprehensive training program focused on specific hazard protection modeling tools.  This certificate emphasizes the chemical, biological, and radiological aspects of this area and is designed to support Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams (WMD-CSTs), Consequence Management Advisory Teams (CMAT); Combatant Commands, and DoD, federal, state, and local emergency managers and planners.


Upon completion of this certificate, students will be able to do the following:

  • Apply and demonstrate HPAC source term functionality, computation, methodologies, translating, and communicating results
  • Recognize and analyze different classes, makes, and configurations of contemporary weapons
  • Identify the existence and assess the magnitude of a threat is an essential skill in the fields of protection management, intelligence and counterterrorism
  • Evaluate the capabilities and motivation of potential attackers
  • Synthesize and reflect upon knowledge gained upon certificate completion
