The risks associated with infrastructure are clearly identified but training to minimize the impact of these challenges is sparsely available or lacking in related content.  This project will design and establish academic credentials as well as non-credit short courses that will prepare participants to assess, mitigate and plan for vulnerabilities related to transportation hubs.  This project will complete an overarching environmental scan to design and establish two academic certificates with interwoven non-academic workforce training components that address infrastructure cybersecurity and emergency preparedness.
