GP Corp. awarded CBRNE training contract

The U.S. Army's Pine Bluff Arsenal announced on Monday that it has awarded the General Physics Corporation a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives equipment training contract.
GP is the operating subsidiary of GP Strategies Corporation. The company's Homeland Security, Defense and Emergency Management team received the contract to provide CBRNE detection, protection and decontamination sustainment training and technical assistant for medical, firefighting and law enforcement personnel located on U.S. Army military installations worldwide.
The contract award is for a base year with two option years. GP has provided similar training since 1999 under the Domestic Preparedness Equipment Training Assistance Program to local and state first responders. GP will support the U.S. Army's the Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command Consequence Management team and the Pine Bluff Arsenal. The arsenal is a Department of Defense center of expertise for chemical and biological defensive equipment support and production. TACOM helps emergency responders operate and maintain their CBRNE detection and response equipment. Under the terms of the contract, GP can provide more than 30 courses that range from one to four hours in length.
"Our instructors and technical staff have established a reputation across the responder communities for being the go-to experts in the operation, maintenance, capabilities and limitations of a broad assortment of CBRNE equipment over the past 12 years," Craig Seger, the senior vice president for GP, said. "This competitive award recognizes our reputation for providing the highest quality training to our nation's civilian first responders, including those serving on Army installations throughout the world."
