Our Checkpoint Security Training course ensures that employees understand their role and responsibilities in relation to the safety of the Security Restricted Area (SRA), while on duty at an airport security checkpoint.
Designed for any member of staff employed to control access points, this course trains personnel to prepare people for security checks. It also covers searching bags and persons by hand and the use of X-Ray machines / metal detectors.
Based on the Department for Transport (DfT) syllabus for Security Operatives, the CST course meets the training prescribed by the DfT for those employed in security roles at checkpoints within an airport. Each lesson introduces users to a new aspect of the job role and explains what is required. Employing the very latest thinking in Computer Based Training (CBT) technology, our CST course ensures new-hire screeners receive the required levels of introductory training.
The most advanced technology is of little value if operators aren’t appropriately trained. It’s important to remember that despite the substantial progress in X-Ray imaging, the final decision on luggage that does or doesn’t enter an aircraft is made by a human operator.

Affordable, Convenient, High Quality Training
At Quadratica UK we are continuously looking for ways to provide our customers with the best functionality, in the most economic format. DfT training can be expensive, and the quality of instruction can vary from trainer to trainer. Our online training courses deliver high quality training, every time. Scheduling training for a large work force no longer requires the hire of training rooms, or taking staff off the floor. Our courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so training can be scheduled around staff availability and convenience.
To keep our clients’ training overheads down, we have priced our courses by the unit – if only 2 people require training, our clients only pay for 2 units, whereas a certified instructor will charge the same amount whether they are training 2 or 20 people.
We provide training managers with the best possible tools to educate their security staff by continually developing groundbreaking technologies. Our products are designed with a strong focus on our customers’ ever evolving needs and the shifting landscapes of the security industry.
Important EU Regulations*
In accordance with EU regulation 2015/1998, the Department for Transport (DfT) states that security training cannot be delivered unless a background / employment check has been successfully completed. Therefore, as part of the assessment process for the CST course, a responsible company representative must confirm that security checks have taken place.
It’s an offence to provide false information to access the CST material. It’s also an infringement of the regulations if the Responsible Person is found to be falsifying their own credentials, or doesn’t take the course themselves.
