Clearance Requirements (AVOP & RAIC) & Training
To ensure the highest level of security, all personnel entering restricted areas of the Airport must have the appropriate security clearances and adhere to Transport Canada regulations to prevent or reduce unlawful interference with civil aviation. For many of Securiguard's positions based at our Vancouver Airport Branch, candidates must have the ability to obtain Restricted Area Identification Card (RAIC). This clearance involves a rigorous background check, based on 5 years of history in Canada.
This role also requires an Airside Vehicle Operator's Permit (AVOP). The airside of an airport is a specialized working environment governed by rules designed to prevent accidents, avoid property damage and minimize the risk of injury to personnel. An Airside Vehicle Operator's Permit (AVOP) certifies that a person is trained to operate vehicles safely airside in gate, runway and aircraft taxi areas. AVOP applicants must prove both a need and right to operate a vehicle airside. Applicants must also pass a written and practical exam.
Successful candidates will also be trained in Aviation Security and upon passing the examination will receive an AVSEC certification.
