AWR 144-V 8.00 hour instructor-led course

Port and Vessel Security for Public Safety and Maritime Personnel-Virtual Instructor Led Delivery via Zoom

This eight-hour awareness-level course is delivered in 4-hour sessions over 2 consecutive days. The course is delivered virtually with a live instructor via the Zoom web conference platform. It is designed to provide participants with the basic competencies associated with port and vessel security, as well as a working knowledge of maritime security appropriate to public safety responders in rural jurisdictions. A foundation for this working knowledge will be built by explaining the extent of the maritime transportation system followed by a discussion on the vulnerabilities of that system.

The participants will be given instruction concerning specific maritime security regulations affecting facilities and vessels (e.g., MARSEC levels, SSI, TWIC, etc.). Potential hazards in the dock and vessel environment will also be identified. Additional resources which participants can reference for more information, such as HOMEPORT and others, will be discussed.

Course Prerequisites

  • Participants must be a U. S. citizen
  • A computer or other device connected to the internet with speakers and a microphone
  • A stable internet connection
