Security 101

Course Content

The Security 101 (SEC101) is a Basic Training Program designed for MEC security representatives. Its purpose is two-fold; to introduce ALPA policies and protocols and to give guidance on how to serve as an MEC security representative. This course offers a great opportunity for MEC Security Committee representatives to better serve the security needs of the membership. It will provide attendees with a methodology for handling security related matters, a working knowledge of ALPA resources and protocols, and a familiarity with the composition of ALPA Aviation Security, its role and activities.

The first day of the training is spent attending the ALPA 101 Foundational ALPA Service Training (FAST). The next two days are special breakout sessions specifically dealing with security knowledge and information. Note: ALPA 101 FAST is a required prerequisite for Security 101.


Your MEC Security Committee's budget pays for all of your pilot expenses: travel, lodging, meals, and flight pay loss (if required). This includes no-shows for hotel rooms where reservations have been requested and NOT canceled 48 hours prior to arrival and/or if the attendee fails to notify the hotel, during check-in, of a different departure date than the reserved.
