ICS-CERT Cybersecurity Training

I may (MAY!) have a chance to attend a the ICS-CERT Cybersecurity Course in Idaho Falls in December.  Not a sure thing but I am an alternate choice if the primary can't go and my contracting company agrees.  I am one of those guys who always worries about things like this because basically I am an idiot and if I don't want that to show up immediately I need to do some pre-reading.  So I was digging around on the internet looking for a syllabus or whatever and I came across this presentation, which happens to contain a reading list related to the course:

Industrial Control Systems, Networks, and Cybersecurity: 2015 NSF Cybersecurity Summit for Large Facilities and Cyberinfrastructure
