Security Awareness Training for Flight School Employees requires flight schools to ensure that each of its employees (including flight instructors, ground instructors, chief instructors and administrative personnel) who have direct contact with students receive both initial and annually recurrent security awareness training. Flight schools may either choose to use TSA’s security awareness training program or develop their own program. If a flight school chooses to develop its own program, the program must adhere to certain standards in the rule.
For employees hired after January 18, 2005, initial Flight School Security Awareness (FSSA) training must be completed no later than 60 days after the date of hire. Recurrent training must be provided to employees each year in the same month as the month they received initial training.
