Introduction: Area clearance operations involve the clearance of suspected or known mines, unexploded ordnance, improvised explosive devices and booby traps in a defined area of operations. Planning considerations are very similar to breaching operations via Battlefield Operating Systems (BOS) coordination and the application of the breaching tenets.  Area clearance is normally not conducted under fire or in adverse weather conditions and is usually conducted during daylight hours.

This course is designed to produce qualified and capable trainers with the resources, knowledge and doctrinal understanding relevant to area clearance operations.  This will allow units to prepare, conduct, and plan clearance operations to defeat explosive hazard threats in Regional Area of operations.  Training is relevant to both OIF and OEF Theaters of Operations.

Concept: The course is a structured 5-day (40-hour) event. 
• Introduction and doctrine overview
• Technical surveys and marking of hazard areas
• Theory of metal detection
• Equipment overview including MV-4 Flail and Berm Sifter
• Mine Detection Dog (MDD) brief and demonstration
• MOS 12B

Intermediate Search Course

Intermediate Search Course (ISC)
NO LONGER OFFERED AFTER 30 SEP 17

email: usarmy.leonardwood.engineer-schl.mbx.cehc@mail.mil

 

Introduction: Search operations allow Commanders to take the initiative by depriving the enemy of resources and disrupting his freedom of movement.  The intelligence and evidence located during a successful search will often provide the greatest opportunities to attribute a ‘find’ to a specific individual or group, which will assist in the development of Targeting efforts across the operational environment. This course is designed to train selected personnel in the management and application of intermediate, systematic search procedures (as a unit) for the search of personnel, vehicles, external areas, route and occupied/unoccupied buildings.  It also provides SFC to CPT the ability to plan and coordinate search tasks up to Battalion Staff planning as a Unit Search Advisor (USA). The objectives of Military Search can be summarized as:

•To protect potential targets
•To gain evidence
•To gain intelligence
•To deny the enemy terrorist resources

Concept: The course is a 10 day (80 hour) event.  During the first week both Searchers and Advisors learn and develop techniques, planning skills and obtain an understanding of the processes involved in planning and coordinating a search mission.  During the second week the searchers and USA come together for a number of practical exercises starting from the battalion mission intent through to completion at the objective.

•Maneuver and Maneuver Support units
•Search Advisors: SFC-CPT Unit Searcher: PVT-SSG
