Level CO – Cargo Operative

All staff with unescorted access to identifiable secure air cargo will require training. Exactly which staff receive which level or module is down to the company to decide, based on their knowledge of the operation and the rules set in place by the CAA/DfT. This course is for staff implementing security controls for air cargo or mail at a regulated site, specifically those working in the warehouse of a regulated agent.

Who Should Attend?

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.
