Airfield & Terminal Security: Understanding Inspection & Compliance Measures Virtual Workshop



Airport operations and security personnel are often the first responders to security-related incidents and are the vanguards for keeping a safe, efficient, and secure airport. A wrong decision can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, delay critical airport construction projects, or even result in delayed or canceled flights. Airport Security must be uniquely qualified to serve at an airport, as there is no equivalent in the protection industry. If an officer fails to understand the core mission and the airports operating environment, money, time, and possibly even lives can be lost. This course provides both operations and security personnel the necessary information and perspectives on the basics of securing a public-use airport.
