Renful Premier Technologies delivered Passenger Profiling and Document Verification Course to Pyrex, UK.
The objective of the course is to teach part taking aviation security officers the various profile-based methodologies available to complement traditional passenger screening.
The officers learn about need for profiling, the importance of behavioural analysis, suspicious indicators and effective questioning.
In addition to that, the course aims to provide staff with an understanding of the increasingly complex methods used by forgers and criminals to manufacture and alter identity documents and introduce them to effective procedures and techniques for identification of inadmissible passengers and document forgery.

As an aftermath of last year’s terrorist attempt to blow up an Etihad Airways plane, The United States Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) introduced a new item to the list of items restricted on board an aircraft – powder. The list already limits the sizes and quantities for various everyday items such as aerosol cans, liquids, gels and it continues to grow.
Starting June 30, air travellers will be allowed to take no more than 12 ounces of powder (such as cosmetics, spices, drink mixes and so on) onboard hassle-free, while bigger amounts will have to undergo additional security screening.
But will this really boost security? Or will it rather hide its weaknesses?
While TSA is trying to simplify the detection task of X-Ray screeners, by reducing the complexity of traveller bags, the main issue – that is the lack of threat recognition ability among security personnel due to inefficient and old-fashioned training – remains unaddressed.
“Renful Premier Technologies” experts believe, that rather than applying further restrictions on the travelling public, airports and security providers should revise and refresh their training methodologies so that the industry can stay one step ahead of modern aviation threats without inconveniencing travellers.
