Inspect baggage or cargo and screen passengers to detect and prevent potentially dangerous objects from being transported into secure areas or onto aircraft.
A Screening Officer has two main roles;
Screeners make sure passengers do not board airplanes with anything that could be used as a weapon or made into one. Screeners perform tasks such as hand-wanding, pat-down searches and monitoring passengers as they walk through the metal detector. Screeners coordinate with airport police if a situation at a checkpoint requires police involvement.
Here Screeners make sure passengers do not stash potential weapons in their bags. Screeners operate X-ray machines and identify dangerous objects in baggage and cargo. They also perform hand inspections of baggage if necessary. This duty may take place at the passenger security checkpoint or, in the case of checked baggage, at a designated spot near the ticket counter.
A Security Officer Licence is a common requirement to becoming a Screening Officer. This licence is only available after completing a Certificate II in Security Operations.
