Port Security, Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Port Security examines U.S. and international policy, laws, and regulations for maritime and aviation security in light of current security challenges, terrorism and transnational criminal threats, and the potential U.S. and global impact of maritime and aviation security failures. Emergency response and recovery mechanisms and implementation as well as organizations and associations critical to modern U.S. maritime and aviation port security infrastructure protection will be evaluated and exercised.

The certificate offers leaders an opportunity to evaluate maritime and aviation security risks, threats, and measures to mitigate within applicable U.S. and international policy, assess and implement response and planning mechanisms for maritime transportation system security and aviation and airport security requirements, and conduct real-world actionable planning and strategy development for maritime and aviation security response and crisis management, among other essential skills for senior leaders.
