National Training Center (NTC) instruction for the Vulnerability Assessment (VA) program element supports risk-management-based Department of Energy (DOE) policy through a systematic evaluation process. The process applies quantitative and/or qualitative techniques to arrive at an effectiveness level for a Safeguards & Security (S&S) system. NTC VA courses are intended for DOE Federal and contractor S&S personnel and for other government agencies who work in the physical protection or program planning and management program elements.
The NTC's fundamental VA courses provide an introductory knowledge of the systematic VA approach for evaluating S&S effectiveness against threats identified in the Design Basis Threat (DBT) policy, and identify available modeling tools. These courses address application of the DBT policy and an understanding of the VA processes, which include facility characterization, neutralization, and overall system effectiveness. Additionally, various calculations will be required to perform assorted VA analyses.
The NTC is currently conducting a curriculum review and revision of its series of advanced VA courses.
