Counterterrorism DivisionUp one level
The design, development and delivery of high-quality training courses and programs relating to Terrorism Methodology, Threat Response, Threat Mitigation and Infrastructure Protection is the primary mission of the Counterterrorism Division (CTD). The CTD also operates a specialized antiterrorism/physical security training facility to demonstrate and validate state-of-the-art hardware and provide students with a hands-on laboratory environment.
Classroom lecture, reinforced through various training aids, laboratory exercises, and practical exercises ensure students a meaningful learning experience. Courses taught by the CTD staff in the Center’s basic training programs include: Terrorism, Bombs and Explosives, First Response, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Hazardous Materials, Physical Security, Weapons/Explosives Detection, Aircraft Countermeasures, Operations Security, and Man-Portable Air Defense Systems.
In addition to basic courses, the CTD also offers Advanced Training Programs to enhance the knowledge and abilities of today’s law enforcement professionals, with the goal of enhancing their overall effectiveness in an “all hazards” environment.
The CTD is also involved with the continued development and operation of several facilities designed and built to assist law enforcement with combating the terrorist threat. Additionally, these multi-venue facilities provides today’s law enforcement officers access to training resources never before available at the FLETC, allowing students to train on advanced and specialized skills necessary for engaging in high-risk operations for today’s dangerous world.

Information regarding availability of seats, program costs, and/or registration procedures.
This amount includes tuition, meals, lodging, and miscellaneous costs. This is a high-end estimate based upon the maximum possible lodging expenses if the class is housed off-Center in a hotel. If the class is housed on-Center in a dormitory, the lodging cost may be lower.
Your agency will be billed approximately 30 – 45 days after completion of the program. Please do not mail or bring a check with you to the training program, as the exact amount due will not be available until after completion of the training.
Upon arrival at the FLETC, please register at the front gate, Building 1 (Visitors Center). The staff at Registration will issue an identification badge, class package, and lodging information upon your arrival. Please complete the registration form and present two copies when you register at Building 1. This will expedite the registration process and can greatly reduce your wait time at check-in.
All students traveling to the Center, including those driving, must call the Transportation Office, commercial (912) 267-2458 as soon as transportation plans are firm and NO LATER THAN FIVE (5) WORKING DAYS PRIOR to class commencement to advise time and place of arrival.

Please be sure to contact Transportation prior to your arrival if you need transportation from any of these airports – transportation is not guaranteed unless you make prior arrangements with the Transportation office.
