An individual is competent in the NRBC-E domain if he acts and succeeds in a given situation. If if he has the resources and training in like in for instance exceptional health situation, allowing him to act, he develops skills.
Competence is therefore operative, structured, linked to the action that makes it emerge and to the resources it mobilizes, but it is not observable. The behaviors or results are visible, which position the individual in relation to others, allowing him to obtain recognition and acquire a social identity. Competence is the "socially recognized outcome of the interaction between the individual and the environment".
Today, can we say that the knowledge of each profession serves the action of the training? Are individual skills sufficiently shared to build operational and collective skills?
The ERTC Center is a training Center that provides a leverage for change, common to all inter-services, mobilizing knowledge, generating motivation and willingness, guaranteeing operationnel capacity open to all culttures (medical, defense, industry, ...) federated around experienced and committed facilitators with mixed compentences
The proposed trainings, which are a combination of theoretical and practical courses by our French experts are aimed at:
•Agents of the ministries of the interior
•Defence (eg. Special Forces, CBRN Regiment, SIBCRA / ERE Team, …)
•Executives of industrial establishments
•Responsibles for security
•Health practitioners (doctors, pharmacists, odontologists, veterinarians, paramedics, …)
The training courses offered by the E.R.T.C Center address the main issues raised by CBRN-e risk, whether accidental or malicious.
Crisis managers and field operators will be able to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge enabling them to :
-Understand NRBC-e strategies,
-NATO SIBCRA procedures (Sampling and Identification of Biological, Chemical and Radiological Agents)
-Understand and apply the doctrines of implementation of countermeasures,
-Understand and apply the principles of caring for the victims and damage control
-Understand and apply the design and development of emergency plans,
-Understand the societal and, legal consequences of these threats and the means to allow better management of information in crisis situations.
-Explosive Ordnance Reconnaissance.
ALREADY AVAILABLE TRAINING MODULES:
-Geostrategy and geopolitics of emerging threats
-Organization of operational and health defence
-CBRN analysis: Detection and identification of CBRN agents, sampling
-Radio-nuclear risk management (NR)
-Biological risk management (B)
-Chemical risk management (C)
-Triage contaminated victims
-Damage control ( First aid life safety gestures for CBRN-E incidents e.g.. Intubation, reanimation, tourniquet, ...)
-Communication and psychological crisis management
-And more …
SOME COURSE EXAMPLES (First aid and Medical emergency courses):
1.Medicalized acts under CBRN threats and damage control
