Safety & Security Basic Training

Prior to working airside on the aprons an employee must take the Basic Training for apron safety and security. After you completed the Training you will take the Safety & Security Test.  This does not apply to pass renewals or applications for passes exclusively for the perimeter roads, baggage areas or terminal.

The Training makes you aware of the risks associated with apron safety and security. Once you have completed the training programme you may apply for a Schiphol Pass. The Schiphol Pass is valid for maximum five years, thereby giving you access to the aprons.

The Training comprises a presentation on safety- and security topics and is based on the Schiphol Regulations as described in the Pocket Guide Safety & Security. The session continues with an airside/Schiphol-Centre bus tour.
