Everyone who works or wishes to seek employment in an airport and does not require access ‘airside’.  For those who require access airside in UK airports you need to complete a GSAT course.

This Airport Security course covers much of the same content as a GSAT course but isn’t currently accredited by the DFT.



Learners are emailed their Airport Security certificate when they have achieved 80% or more in the final multiple-choice quiz.

If a learner scores less than 80%, they may revisit any part of the course and retake the assessment until successful.

A posted copy of the certificate is available for £9.

The Airport Security certificate is valid for 3 years


UNIT 1  |  Threats to Aviation

The aviation industry has been a prime target for terrorists for many years. The threat is real; but with your help, we can do much to reduce it. In this module we alert you to the nature of the threat and help you understand what you can do to assist in the day-to-day security of your airport.

This module will give you a basic understanding of how you can help to make your airport a safer place.

UNIT 3  |  The Trainee’s Role

This information is of interest to those looking for ways to breach security.
