Badging Process

  • Download and complete the badge application, and if applicable, the fingerprint application (Criminal History Records Check).
  • Have your Authorized Signatory sign the section at the top of the second page indicating that you require a badge and select the access you need.
  • Review the List of Acceptable Documents to ensure you possess the correct identification for your security badge. Documents must be originals, no photocopies will be accepted and they must be current and unexpired.
  • Bring the completed application and indentification to the administration office. If fingerprints are required, call to setup an appointment.
  • Your paperwork will be submitted for a Security Threat Assessment (STA) and if applicable, a Criminal History Records Check (CHRC). The STA and CHRC typically take 3-5 business days to process.
  • Once your background check has cleared, you will need to complete the appropriate training to receive your badge. Training is every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. in the Airport Administration Office. Please call to sign up for a class.
  • After completing the training your photo will be taken and you will receive your badge.
