Identification

All badge applicants must present two (2) forms of ID or documentation when applying for or renewing an Airport ID Badge. One ID must have been issued by a Government Authority and one must include a photo.

  • First ID: Valid Driver’s License, State ID, or Passport

Fingerprints

Fingerprints are required for SIDA badge applicants (not AOA applicants) and appointments can be made ahead of time through the Administration Office with all required documents and approvals met.  This criminal history check verifies there have been no convictions or disqualifying crimes of any kind.

Security Training

All badge applicants must be able to attend and understand the airport’s security rules, regulations and procedures and have the ability to perform the responsibilities associated with unescorted access privileges. Training class requires the applicant to complete the following: badging application, fingerprint application (if needed), and Privacy Act Notice Statement.  Training class participants must view a security video, listen to a lecture, and pass a written test certifying their understanding of the information presented.  Any individual who fails the test will be permitted to repeat the training and retake the test at the Airport Trainer’s discretion.
