Airport staff are benefiting from an online training programme which has been specifically designed to meet the DfT requirement for GSAT (General Security Awareness Training). All staff working in an airport’s restricted zone are now required to have GSAT by law.

The Department for Transport has stated that all staff who work airside – whether airline employees, airport employees, retailers, contractors and specialist workers, anyone requiring an airside pass, must complete GSAT (General Security Awareness Training) with an approved training provider. is helping employers meet these demands - which are set to affect thousands of staff at all levels – by providing an enhanced training experience.

The specialist company is the first to have developed an interactive, video based training course which allows candidates to relate more easily to the issues they are being tested on, with real workplace scenarios being portrayed on screen.

This programme from has been specifically tailored for the internet, and its professional film sequences were captured at a major UK airport to provide realistic images. Users can also benefit from easy to understand pictograms, on-screen text to emphasise key points and a glossary of abbreviations and technical terms.

The GSAT training course is easy to book, with an online payment facility, easy to understand and complete, and is fully approved by the DfT. Candidates must pass a multiple choice test at the end of the programme and can immediately print out their certificate on passing the test. The test covers security issues that airside staff may encounter such as threats to aviation, restricted zone protection, access control and prohibited articles.
