Our Vision

To provide training opportunities with emerging technologies, and encourage the sharing of resources, ideas, and experiences between bomb disposal specialists, academics, innovators, and industry partners.

Remote Training Program

This USBTA Remote Training Program is our effort to provide live training, in a safe forum, while complying with CDC guidelines pertaining to COVID-19, and considering current travel restrictions. Bimonthly Training deliveries are conducted using Microsoft Teams and subject matter experts respected by the active duty EOD and public safety Bomb technician community.

USBTA Technology Training Exercises

Our training exercises are designed to challenge bomb technicians and enhance their skills using current and emerging technology. In addition, the training allows the manufacturers to have their technologies put through real-life scenario based rotations. Based on the performance of the technology and the valuable feedback from the bomb technicians, the manufacturers are challenged to make modifications and enhancements to accomplish operational readiness.
