Tuesday, April 21, 2020 to Wednesday, April 22, 2020
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Daily

The registration period has closed for this event.

Course Description
  • Do you fully understand the risk to your facility?
  • Do you know what makes your facility susceptible to risk?
  • Are you prepared to mitigate those risks?


The Critical Asset Risk Management course helps participants answer those questions by teaching critical components of risk management. Through a combination of lecture, facilitated discussion, and group activities, participants will learn how threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences determine risk, and are given an opportunity to practice the fundamentals of conducting vulnerability assessments by conducting on-site assessments of select local facilities. Additionally they will identify potential mitigation measures associated with their findings and work together to develop and present a risk assessment report.


(This registration is for a *single class*. If you want to complete all four classes needed for the Infrastructure Protection Certificate Program, you will need to register for each class individually: AWR-213, MGT-310, MGT-315, and MGT-414.)
