This course is for those who are already IMAS EOD Level 3 qualified and would, due to enhancing their skill set, like to have a more in-depth knowledge on the way IEDs and Booby Traps are constructed, initiated, and where they are likely to be located. The course will enable successful students with the skills to conduct Advance Search threat assessments, extensive planning and execution of recognised Search procedures. These skills will all contribute to the safe locating and marking of legacy IEDs and hides using intelligence assessments, systematic procedures and appropriate detection techniques. Consequently, aiding follow up agencies with the disposal or recovery of finds and allowing the environment to be returned to normal. The HIED-S course has been designed in a way to assess students’ ability to perform as Advance Search Advisors, Team Leaders and Team Searchers in a permissive environment.
