The instruction of the course is enhanced with the use of visual media in video and photographic formats that allow the audience to see real case studies of actual detections that reinforce the learning process and provide a platform for discussion. These examples were mainly derived from actual illicit commodity interceptions by the subject matter experts, thus providing first-hand knowledge of the events. The audience will receive instruction on how to detect and defeat electronically operated traps. There will be discussion and presentation of media depicting real case examples of countermeasures that are being applied to thwart law enforcement efforts by defeating X-ray equipment, density detection devices, fiber scopes, K-9 detection, and other efforts. | Topics Included: Drive-train components - Includes the running engine, transmission, axles, and drive shafts | Floor and roof compartments | Wall compartments - Includes engine bay firewall | Seats | Dashboards | Rocker panels | Bumpers | Tires | Fuel tanks | Doors | Other components – Battery, radiator, fluid containers | Course Length:  Advanced Vehicle Contraband Concealment is a 2-day (16 hour) course. | Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites to attend this course. | Dress Code: Uniform or Business Casual (NO shorts/flip-flops). **NOTE:  This class will be limited to 55 attendees.  As COVID precautions, it is recommended that attendees wear a mask and practice social distancing as much as possible in class.**
