Course Description

MGT-315 - Critical Asset Risk Management

This course  formerly was titled Enhanced Threat and Risk Assessment (ETRA) compliments the Jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification
and Risk Assessment course (MGT-310) by teaching participants to conduct thorough site-specific critical infrastructure risk and vulnerability assessments to enhance development of their jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA). Through a combination of classroom presentations, group discussions, and practical field application, participants learn methods to identify and prioritize risks, assess vulnerabilities, estimate consequences, and use the National Preparedness Cycle to mitigate risk. Multidisciplinary participant teams visit and assess critical infrastructure facilities selected by the host
jurisdiction, identifying risks, vulnerabilities, consequences, and mitigation options specific to their assigned site. Teams then document their findings, develop an action plan, and present their results to the class.
