The CBRN Defense series of courses at WSU is excellent for students new to CBRN Defense and contributes volumes to those who work with CBRN defense in their careers and military jobs. Courses normally taught to Army, Air Force, and Marine CBRNE units typically include the key learning points for the selected threats but rarely peeks behind the curtain. Our CBRN defense courses move into the graduate level learning with a wide variety of threats that most military units have never heard of but could likely encounter.
These courses greatly enhance CBRN responders' ability to speak confidently about the full spectrum of CBRN threats. As a leader and a scientist within the CBRN community, the completion of the CBRN Defense Graduate Certificate would clearly set an individual apart from one's peers and demonstrate that they are a true CBRN professional.
To be admitted in the certificate program students need to meet the following qualifications:
- BS degree in science or health related field
- If the applicant's native language is not English, a minimum score of 213(CBT) or 79/120(IBT) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required or a band 6 through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
- 3.0 grade point average.
