Need Assistance with Military EOD "certifications"

I am working on a project evaluating a security program that proposes to use Military or law enforcement EOD Bomb technicians that are or were certified. I need to get a general scope of what those collective certifications look like, how they are attained and how long they are valid. Just ping here or send me a PM if you care to assist.

Another question. Does the Navy train their bomb techs to recognize explosive devices on a radar screen (Like TSA?)?

Yes, all Navy EOD technicians are well schooled in IEDs and X-ray interpretation. At TSA I have hired over 400 former military EOD as well as public safety bomb technicians to serve as Transportation Security Specialist - Explosives (TSS-E). Let's PM to discuss in more detail.

OK, I will drop a note later this evening. Many thanks. Do you know if the FBI school does the same?

HDS spends a lot of time on X-ray as well.

Yes, all public safety bomb techs that go through Hazardous Devices School in Huntsville are trained in x-ray interpretation during basic and re-qualified in it during recertification.
