This course covers safety and procedures for the use of explosives in research, development, testing, production, and evaluation activities. Students participate in four days of intensive study that consists of classroom presentations, hands-on laboratory instructions, and firing site demonstrations using iling's explosive testing facilities.
The course has been structured to provide basic knowledge for scientist, engineers, and operating personnel in basic explosive chemistry, safety procedures, and testing of energetic materials. This includes training for explosives laboratory personnel in the proper methods for testing explosives.
