In September 2016, an inquiry into aviation and maritime transport security education and training in Australia was completed by the Inspector of Transport Security, Mr Michael Carmody AO.
The inquiry assessed the outcomes and overall quality of existing security training in the aviation and maritime sectors and made a number of recommendations to enhance the education and training of staff at airports and seaports. The Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development has commenced a work program to respond to the recommendations.
