General Security Awareness Training

The General Security Awareness Training Course is UK DfT approved and provides a solid foundation for any person with unescorted access to the Restricted Zone (RZ) at an airport. The course is self-paced and does not require costly instructors and classroom facilities. In addition, each student can complete the training during break hours or on their own time. This minimizes staff disruption and decreases training costs. All student records are stored electronically and each student will receive an approved certificate of completion to present at the pass office during the application process.
