System Security Awareness for Transportation Employees

As part of an agreement between AASHTO and the FTA Office of Safety and Security, the FTA agreed to sponsor NTI's development of an instructor-led course System Security Awareness for Transportation Employees. The course was based on NTI's successful System Security Awareness for Transit Employees. It was developed in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). The course focuses on providing transportation department employees, supervisors, and managers with practical knowledge and skills that will help them effectively carry out their responsibilities concerning operational and infrastructure security. The practices put forth in the program help"harden the target" for state transportation systems and assets relative to terrorism and enhance overall crime prevention efforts.
