LMS hopes to collaborate with Idaho National Laboratory, Bureau of Homeland Security, Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office and the College of Southern Idaho to provide training support. Chapman says southern Idaho is an “ideal” location to support the company’s Northwest training efforts. The company, established in 2006, currently operates a large training facility near Reno, Nevada and sends mobile training teams across the globe.
