As an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician, you’ll need nerves of steel in order to safely handle live explosives on a daily basis in this demanding but satisfying job. In this career, you’ll apply classified techniques and procedures to lessen or totally remove hazards created by the presence of unexploded ordnance. You’ll learn to detect, identify, recover, and dispose of U.S. and foreign explosives and ordnance that are unsafe, including conventional military ordnance, criminals' and terrorists' homemade items, and chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons. EOD teams deploy in support of special operations and low/medium intensity conflicts, analyze unknown munitions and explosives for exploitation by the intelligence agencies, and provide protection to the President, Vice President, and other dignitaries in support of the United States Secret Service. A career in EOD can be extremely dangerous, but you’ll be trained and equipped to safely deal with every situation.
