August 29-31, 2023
Get Certified in the CIA's CARVER Method
at a Historic Hotel in Washington DC from August 29-31, 2023
Three Educational Days Learning the CIA's CARVER Assessment Strategy: A Strategic Target Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment Methodology
A Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) is an understanding of the threats, weaknesses, and probability of attack, which could impact a facility, person, system or event.
As such, the CARVER Strategic Target Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment Methodology is a time-tested vulnerability assessment methodology that balances efficiency with reliability.
It is a unique analytical tool because it facilitates both a qualitative and a quantitative assessment of an asset’s vulnerabilities. Most assessment tools are limited to qualitative assessments. A quantitative assessment assists in highlighting vulnerabilities, prioritizing assets and remedial efforts.
DAY 1 (August 29) 8:30am - 4:30pm in the Mount Vernon Room
Classroom CARVER Training + Afternoon Target Analysis Exercise
Located within the historic Madison Hotel, this is a fast-paced day of lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and interactive exercises to immerse you in the world of CARVER. You will then be broken into teams for an afternoon target analysis exercise. Coffee and pastries are provided in the morning, along with an afternoon snack.
DAY 2 (August 30) Class from 8:30AM to 4:30pm
Classroom CARVER Training + Afternoon Tabletop Exercise
Another busy day filled with case study discussions about strategy and practicing quantitative measurements of risk, threats, and vulnerabilities.

DAY 3 (August 31) Class from 8:30AM to 1:30PM
CARVER+ Intro, Final Exercise, and Graduation
Students will divide into teams and commence with their final vulnerability assessment exercise. Following two hours of field work, students will make a final presentation of their findings to "The Godfather of CARVER," Leo Labaj, for review/critique. A graduation ceremony will conclude the course. Students departing that day should arrange flights out of either Washington National Airport or Washington Dulles Airport no earlier than 5pm (7pm for Baltimore-Washington Airport).
