||In the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, the United States of America initiated the global war on terrorism. Many Government, military, and industry leaders soon realized how few organizations, key leaders, and first responders had sufficient education, training, and experience to properly prepare for and respond to this threat.|
The Anti-Terrorism Accreditation Board (ATAB), in cooperation with the International Society of Anti-Terrorism Professionals (ISATP), researched available materials and consulted with numerous Government, military, and industry experts, and determined the need for standardized anti-terrorism training and certification programs.
Information from sources such as the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), the United States Army, the United States Navy, the Federal Fire Academy, and INTERPOL, as well as other industry experts was merged with lessons learned and common sense to develop the ATAB Certified Anti-terrorism Specialist (CAS) and Certified Master Anti-terrorism Specialist (CMAS) training and certification programs.
Since inception, ATAB has trained and certified thousands of anti-terrorism professionals currently and formerly employed in key Government, military, and private industry positions. ATAB currently offers credentials as a Certified Anti-Terrorism Specialist (CAS) and Certified Master Anti-terrorism Specialist (CMAS), as well as advanced, specialized credentials as a CAS-Physical Security Manager (CAS-PSM), CAS-Maritime Security Manager (CAS-MSM), CAS-Cyber Terrorism Responder (CAS-CTR), and CAS-Information Technology Manager (CAS-ITM). Regardless of your anti-terrorism career path, ATAB offers training and certification programs to meet your needs. .
