Training Essentials For Xray Course
In This Article
A positive security culture amongst the staff employed at our airports is one of the most important aspects of effective security. All airport employees should undertake security awareness training to help them to understand airport security measures, their obligations, what they are expected to do in the event of an incident and how to report suspicious activity, crime or security breaches that are witnessed.
The UK’s Department for Transport (DfT) have introduced a mandatory security training requirement for personnel employed at airports whose employment requires them to be issued with an airside pass. This new type of training is known as General Security Awareness Training (GSAT). Successful completion of a GSAT course is required before an airside worker can be issued or re–issued with an airside pass. The GSAT requirement covers a wide range of airport employees from shop workers to cleaners to contractors. The DfT have specified the scope and content of GSAT, and this course has been designed to comply with these specific DfT requirements. The aim of this GSAT course is to allow you to fulfil the requirements for GSAT as part of the process for airside access.
Renful have brought an engaging element to their GSAT course, with an extensive use of images, animation, video and case studies to illustrate training concepts.
Students should be allowed 3 – 4 hours to complete the training course. They can break this time up by sitting fewer modules in one go. Each Module can be accessed at any time.
