Building Design Guidance for Terrorism Mitigation

The Building Design Guide for Terrorism Mitigation online PDH course is a part of the Building Design category of courses. This course highlights mitigation measures that may be applied to building elements, including architectural, structural, and building envelope systems. It also reviews additional building design measures that should be considered to protect building occupants when the desired level of protection cannot be achieved through site design.

The online PDH course is based on Chapter 3 “Building Design Guidance” of the FEMA Publication tilted, “Mitigating Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings” (FEMA 426).

This course is intended to be used by architects, civil and structural, mechanical, electrical engineers, façade designers and others interested in learning about building design guidance for mitigation of terrorist risk.
