Air Cargo Security Training (U.S.)

Because of SSI "need-to-know" criteria and training effectiveness, GISTnet offers multiple IAC air cargo security training courses, each covering all TSA-specified training topics required for the indicated job assignment(s). Fee for annual refresher training is automatically discounted 50% (half the fee shown below) provided the person assigned has completed previous equivalent training with GISTnet. GISTnet IAC training is maintained to the current IACSSP change level and refers to IACSSP provisions throughout. These courses can be easily customized to include company-specific policy and procedures. Please call for more information.
