Transit Security Design Guidance - Access Management
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
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.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the various parameters of access management
- Knowing the challenges of incorporating access management into the transit environment
- Using access management as part of a security planning and design strategy
- Understanding the various security concepts behind access management
- Using tools and techniques in developing an effective access management strategy
