The threat of a bomb or IED - Improvised Explosive Device on board a ship is a significant security concern for any shipping company. Ships can be highly vulnerable to such potential threats due to the complexity of their structures, which can offer endless opportunities to conceal suspicious objects. In addition, it is not always possible to ensure systematic control of access to people, visitors, passengers, stakeholder representatives, baggage, stores, spare parts and cargo on board, especially during routine operations and in the light of smaller and less well-trained crews.

How do you deal with a report or threat of a bomb or other weapon? How do you handle alerts and searches?

This course has four main lessons: crime and weapons, explosive devices, bomb threats, bomb search and blast mitigation.

Each of the lessons aims to give essential information to provide the crucial elements for understanding the problem, the awareness of the risk and the need to never take anything for granted.
