UXO Global has been providing meaningful, effective and sustainable training for the UXO community since Sept 2009. We consistently produce highly trained and capable UXO Tech I's. Several Program Managers and USACE Representatives have singled out our graduates as being "exceptionally well trained and qualified."
We are pleased to announce that we have gone digital. All of our courseware is now distributed on HP TouchPads. Students are able to highlight, draw and take notes digitally while following along with the class. At the end of each term, each student receives a copy of their note filled courseware on a JumpDrive. This allows for easier referencing when out on a job site.2012 Class Honor Graduates

UXO Global has been busy training all year round, running seven classes a year. Loveland's ideal location, sitting in the Front Range, just north of Denver, allows for optimal training weather. We have 300 sunny days a year and a mild climate, not the pounding snow most envision of Colorado.
Our indoor Challenge Grid allows our student to maximize their hands-on time and increase learning and retention. Prior to our live range exercises, this one-of-a-kind facility offers students the opportunity to practice the skills learned in the classroom.
It is no surprise that the favorite aspect of training is the live fire portion out at the range. Students will be tested on electric and non-electric firing systems; as well as, practice setting up ring main and branch line firing systems. These exercises along with instructor demonstrations prepare the student for the grid.
UXO Global became a VA Approved School in June, 2011. This allows qualified veterans to use their benefits such as GI Bill and Vocational Rehabilitation for attendance at UXO Global. So far in 2012, 17 Veterans have used their benefits to further their education at UXO Global.
