Levels CO & COS – Hand Search

Air Cargo Security courses are modular, each level builds on the training received at a lower level. For example, a Level CO candidate will have received all modules delivered to Level CASP in the morning, before receiving training in the modules specific to Level CO in the afternoon. For those that require it, Level COS – Cargo Operative Screening – Hand Search then builds on the CO level finishing the session.
