For bio/chem warfare and terrorism training completely read the information I am providing below:
Tapes from the most recent bio/chem warfare and terrorism program, entitled "Biological and Chemical Warfare and Terrorism - Medical Issues and Response", that originally aired 28-30 Nov & 8-9 Dec 01, are not yet available (keep checking biomedtraining.org, www.usamriid.army.mil, or ccc.apgea.army.mil) for their availability. If units taped recorded the Nov or Dec 01 bio/chem satellite broadcast, they are free to reproduce this and use it to train. After they view, have them register and test to receive credit at biomedtraining.org until 30 June 2002.
Our sister unit, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD), Chemical Casualty Care Division (CCCD) will be providing these tapes of the most recent bio/chem program to requesting DOD medical organizations. They expect tapes to be available by 28 Feb 02. Use the following contact information to order the tape set:

An alternative for this training is to view the most recent program as a FREE archived web cast at www.swankhealth.com, then register at biomedtraining.org under the "View Via Archived Web Cast" button. When you are finished viewing you may test and receive credit/CEUs at biomedtraining.org. A certificate of training will be presented after testing for you to print locally.
To fulfill an urgent need, you can purchase tapes of this years program from Swank Healthcare Services at 1-800-950-4248 (www.swankhealth.com) for about $100.
