  • U.S. Federal Agency Awards Safe Passage with Contract to Deliver SCORM Compliant Training Modules -
  • Safe Passage is pleased to announce a contract award from a large U.S. federal agency for security checkpoint training courses and X-ray machine simulators. The contract calls for Safe Passage to supply SCORM compliant training packages and engineering support to integrate the packages into the agency’s Learning Management System (LMS).

    The SCORM packages are customized to support the Interagency Security Committee’s (ISC) standard for prohibited articles at non-military federal facilities across the United States. Currently, a total of 78 federal facilities will utilize the SCORM packages. All screening agents and contractors will be required to complete training on an annual basis.

    “Adding capabilities to support SCORM compliance and LMS integration is just another flexible option we can offer our customers,” said Michael Rooksby, President, Safe Passage International. “The security needs of our customers are driving this move, so it is our responsibility to support world-wide content distribution standards as well as provide integration services.”

  • New X-ray Simulators Released into UK Portfolio to Support Remote & Matrix Screening Operations -
  • Safe Passage is pleased to announce the release of its new Matrix Screening X-ray simulators. In Matrix Screening operations, a screener performing primary X-ray interpretation duties will send suspect bags to secondary screening which is handled by a different screener typically using an Image Viewing station. Airports in the United Kingdom continue to integrate Matrix Screening solutions which have the capability of increasing throughput and security at passenger checkpoints.

    X-ray simulators on the market today do not include functionality to support the operational process of Matrix Screening. The new Matrix Screening option from Safe Passage changes that. Now, customers can set the X-ray simulator to enforce REJECT rules. If a screener rejects a bag for further screening, he/she must indicate the item or the area of interest within the bag requiring additional examination. Safe Passage decision trees are set up to provide screeners with a training experience consistent with the operational environment, thereby reinforcing good decision-making skills immediately applicable to the job.

    “Integrating operational procedures into X-ray simulators has long been a challenge for suppliers,” said Michael Rooksby, President, Safe Passage International. “With more and more airports looking toward this type of screening environment, it made sense for Safe Passage to invest in this development. We have worked closely with several UK training partners to define and hone the Matrix Screening decision tree to ensure it meets all operational standards.”

    Safe Passage offers other courses specifically designed to support UK DfT regulations. These include:

    • 6 x 6 Continuous X-ray Training
    • National X-ray Competency Test Preparation Training
    • Threat Image Projection Remedial Training
    • Airport General Security Awareness Training
    • Off-Airport General Security Awareness Training
    • Top-Up General Security Awareness Training
  • Turn-Key CBT System Provided to the Namibian Directorate of Civil Aviation (DCA) -
  • Safe Passage is pleased to announce the Namibian Directorate of Civil Aviation (DCA) has selected Safe Passage to equip its primary aviation training center and two satellite training centers with Safe Passage Computer Based Training (CBT). In addition to the CBT, Safe Passage is providing instructor-led training and materials to help DCA instructors to create a formal aviation security training program.

    The scope of work included collaborating with DCA AvSec instructors to define an outcome-based approach to X-ray interpretation. With recent installations of new X-ray equipment, the DCA wanted to be certain security screeners used the technology to its fullest potential to prevent prohibited articles from entering the sterile area.

    “DCA’s goal is to raise the level of proficiency of all security personnel,” said Michael Rooksby, President, Safe Passage International. “By partnering with Safe Passage, DCA instructors are now able to provide high-quality training that meets international standards. Utilizing our technology, instructors can track performance across their airports and focus remedial training where it is needed the most.”
