NCT PRO Trainings

NCT will be hosting its third edition of the multi-agency, international NCT PRO Trainings at NCT USA 2019, taking place from May 7th to the 9th at the Hilton Dulles Hotel (Herndon, VA). Civil and military first responders will be trained to respond to a mock CBRNe, C-IED/EOD scenario together with a response team from another local county, from a federal agency, or from a specialized military unit. This will be preceded with training on the latest technologies provided by the industry sponsors, allowing teams to practice using the latest equipment prior to using them in the scenario for the most efficient, rapid and coordinated training. Each team will be matched to another team from a different agency. CBRNe, C-IED/EOD events increasingly require a multiagency response, which is why trainings should be interoperable and multidisciplinary. That is what NCT PRO Trainings at NCT USA is all about.

Over the duration of three days, teams of professionals will be trained based on their expertise & requirements using equipment provided by leading CBRNe, C-IED/EOD companies from all over the world. Please be advised that the trainings sessions will only be open for participating teams and companies that have chosen a PRO sponsorship package.

Training Settings & Variables

With the recent Novichok incident in Salisbury grabbing the headlines, never has it been as important to address how we can respond and mitigate CBRNe threats in the most efficient way. Furthermore, HMEs and IEDs have become an ever-present threat outside the battlefield, with an upsurge in terrorist attacks using them as weapons. Attacks using explosives have been used in New York, Boston and many other cities across the world with public transportation and mass gathering events as their targets. Such threats are deemed non-conventional, only further emphasizing the need for interoperable and multiagency trainings by first responders using such variables in training scenarios. Furthermore, the possibility of terrorists adding a CBRN agent to their attacks gives even more urgency to training first responders on threats that they may encounter. Based off the important variables mentioned above, the following settings will be used for the NCT PRO Training sessions:
