Foundations of Terrorism

Course Hours: 8.0 Hours

Course Description

This course studies the foundations of terrorism, and the operational framework of methods and techniques they adhere to. Terrorist perpetrators rarely carry out random, capricious acts without any discernible degree of premeditation. When laying the groundwork for a violent act, terrorist decision-makers historically follow a preliminary sequence of activities called the Terrorist Decision Cycle. Key facets of terrorism such as target selection and means of attack are examined in detail. Learning is further sustained through discussion forums and practical exercises.


Open to sworn local, state, federal, or military law enforcement.
