The applicant must complete all applicable fields on the application form and obtain the employer or sponsoring company’s “Authorized Representative/Signatory Authority” signature in order to be accepted.

When a fingerprint based, criminal history records check (CHRC) is required, the applicant must obtain and complete the Fingerprint application form. The applicants company must schedule an appointment with the Airport to have the fingerprinting conducted. In addition, the Airport is required to submit applicant data to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in order to complete a Security Threat Assessment (STA). Two forms of government issued ID, one of which must have a photo, must be presented when submitting the application forms at the fingerprint appointment. Please reference the Identity and Employment Verification Chart to ensure proper ID is presented.

The CHRC and STA background check process will typically take 3-7 days. The Airport will notify the employer or the applicant once the background check results have been received.

Training is conducted on an appointment only basis and is conducted in the Airport Administration Offices. The applicant must bring photo identification to verify their legitimacy to take the training and check-in at the Airport Administration front desk at least five (5) minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time.
