The USAF EOD 3E8X1 career field education and training plan (CFETP) has multiple requirements for electronics training including analyzing IED electronic circuitry, constructing circuits, IED threat assessment, gaining access and performing render safe techniques.
The U.S. Air Force has issued a Request for Quotes (RFQ) for a course to enable the 439th Explosive Ordnance Disposal flights to learn about the emerging threat and technology related to IEDs in the CONUS and OCONUS environments.
Included in the course objectives are circuits, microcontrollers, components and the software (Integrated Development Environment IDE) as it is related to these electronics.
The course must give each member an understanding of how to safely deal with an IED of this nature in any emergency situation. This will enable the member to protect himself, his team and the surrounding populace.
