Tucson, AZFebruary 27, 2012 – Florida Department of Transportation has approved SSI to release another 4 airport security courses to Florida airport staff and tenants.

Safety & Security Instruction, an industry leading training company, announced the availability of six online courses which include: Escort Procedures, SIDA Training, Challenge Procedures, Badging Practices, General Aviation Security and Basic Security Awareness.

Under the FDOT-approved training program, SSI provides free access to web-based courses which are interactive & engaging while meeting TSA, DOT, and FAA regulatory requirements.
