CISR, working in close collaboration with faculty from JMU’s College of Business (COB), specializes in management training for leaders in humanitarian mine action and conventional weapons destruction around the world. The Senior Managers’ Course (SMC) in Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) and Mine Action seeks to integrate the latest thinking in the field of business management with the practical experience of ERW and mine action operators. The goal is to hone the skills of senior managers of national mine action programs and local implementing partners so that countries can more effectively and efficiently clear their lands of landmines and other ERW that adversely affect their citizens' well-being and impinge upon economic development. To date, CISR has trained 267 senior managers representing 46 countries through the SMC program.
