Introduction to Terrorism

The Government Training Institutes's Intro to Terrorism is an 8 hour lecture course designed for first responders and their supervisors and provides insight to the methodology, mindset and tactics used by terror organizations around the world.

  • Expect the unexpected
  • Recover from a strike
  • Analyze strengths and weaknesses
  • Identify terrorist traps for first responders
GTI's president Chadd Harbaugh and senior terrorism expert Peter Spagnolo recently co-authored Countering Terrorism and Insurgency in the 21st Century.
