Description
Modeled on courses held by the CTBTO in previous years, the course offers comprehensive training in the policy and legal aspects of the CTBT, including its entry-into-force and universalization, as well as the CTBT verification technologies and the civil and scientific applications of monitoring data. The course will also aim to raise awareness about the Integrated Field Exercise 2014 and the development of the on-site inspection regime. The course comprises an interactive online e-learning component as well as a weeklong seminar style course which took place from 1 - 9 September 2014 at the CTBTO in Vienna, Austria, consisting of high-level panel discussions on the diplomatic and policy aspects of the Treaty. This iTunes U course presents the online modules that were made available to course participants six weeks prior to the live segment in Vienna. In addition, a simulation exercise took place which challenged participants to put into practice the ideas and concepts discussed throughout the course. The exercise simulated the deliberations of the CTBTO Executive Council over whether to launch on on-site inspection to investigate a fictional suspicious event. The background materials of the simulation as well as the recordings of the proceedings may be found in the Course Lectures collection .
