Transit Security Design Guidance - Access Management

COURSE NO: F06-001
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Transit Security Design Guidance - Access Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents specific design considerations and the tools necessary for building one of the many integrated security systems known as access management. Access management is a set of policies, plans, procedures, personnel, and physical components that provide control and awareness of assets and activities in and around facilities and restricted areas.


Since the events of September 11, 2001, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has initiated an aggressive effort to assess and strengthen the security readiness of the public transit industry. For many transit agencies in the United States, particularly small- to medium-sized agencies, the need for greater security awareness and preparation has reshaped the task of providing transportation services to the public.


To assist the public transit industry in managing these new demands, FTA has developed security-oriented design considerations for transit bus and rail vehicles, and for the transportation infrastructure. These considerations are intended to aid transit agencies in developing security strategies.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to transit agency decision makers, members of design, construction and operations departments, security and law enforcement personnel, and consultants and contractors, in developing an effective and affordable access management strategy following the completion of a threat and vulnerability assessment (TVA) and development of a comprehensive plan.
