TSA HAZMAT Security Awareness Training Evaluation

TSA published a notice in today’s Federal Register that it plans to collect training evaluation information from participants in a planned HAZMAT Security Awareness training program to be used by HAZMAT carriers and shippers. This notice is being issued to comply with an Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requirement to justify requesting that the public provide information to a government agency. According to the Federal Register notice “TSA plans to develop and distribute a security awareness/in-depth training program and will request voluntary feedback from hazmat motor carrier and shipper companies that elect to receive the training.” TSA plans to offer this training program as a live, instructor led program at various sites around the country. It will also make it available on CD and DVD for use in company training programs. Finally, it will be made available to the general public as a web based training program. TSA plans to request user feed-back in each of the formats. Personally identifiable information will not be part of the information request. Public comments on this information collection request (ICR) need to be submitted to TSA by January 20, 2009.
