CBRN Defense Specialists conduct and supervise training for individual survival measures for unit personnel, unit and staff level training, CBRN monitoring and survey team training and decontamination team training. CBRN Specialists also operate within the unit's combat operations center assisting CBRN Defense Officers and CBRN Defense Chiefs in providing commanders with recommended courses of action to meet operational objectives in a CBRN environment facilitating mission accomplishment. CBRN Defense Specialists provide information to the CBRN Defense Officers and CBRN Defense Chiefs relative to CBR exposure status, location of contaminated areas on the battlefield, and readiness status of their unit's CBRN equipment.
