    The School of Infantry is proud to announce that we will be conducting the Explosive Ordnance Disposal course. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal course is focused on the skills and knowledge required to be able to conduct convoys in high-risk areas, dealing with vehicle-borne IEDs, spotting IEDs and Landmines, and the usage of the aforementioned tools. The class may take around 120 minutes (2 hours). The class consists mostly of classroom learning, hands on exercise, followed by a qualification exercise. This course will be a pre-requisite for coming courses in our AO, and is a pass/fail course. If you fail to meet expectations of explosive usage, you will not receive the EOD badge but will still receive course attendance credit.

    Troopers will learn

    • How to stage a convoy in high-risk areas; convoy formations
    • How to react to IED / Landmine threats
    • How to react to VBIED Threats
