Badging & Operations

I Need To Renew my badge.

It is the responsibility of each badge holder to maintain a current airport-issued identification badge.


Your badge must be renewed before the badge expires. All badge renewals require an appointment and badges can be renewed up to 60 days before expiration, which is two years from your testing date. If your badge becomes expired for more than 30 days, you will have to go through the entire badging process again as a new applicant. For your badge renewal appointment, please bring with you the following completed forms:

You will also need to provide in the Badging Office your two forms of ID from the List of Acceptable Documents. Copies are not accepted. For examples of acceptable forms of identification, please visit the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website.

The Badge and Fingerprint / STA Application must be completed in its entirety. If you meet one of the following three conditions listed below, you must provide those identifications used to complete the Badge and Fingerprint / STA Application. The three conditions are:

  • You are not a U.S. citizen
  • You hold a non-immigrant Visa
  • You are a U.S. citizen born abroad or a naturalized U.S. citizen

For Secured Area badges (gold), SIDA badges (blue), Sterile Area badges (white), AOA badges (red) and anyone who drives, security training is taken via the IET (Interactive Employee Training) computer. There are security, Non-Movement Area Driving and Movement Area Driving components. Please allow about one hour for security training and 30 minutes for each driving training component. In addition, depending on your particular access level, there may be an additional security brief to read and initial. Further, for those individuals with a Public ID badge, a security awareness training module will also be completed on the IET computer. Once your training or security briefs are successfully completed, the new badge is issued.

All identification badges issued by the Pensacola International Airport are the property of the Airport and must be returned immediately under the following conditions:
  • Upon expiration of the badge (it is a serious security violation to display an expired badge)
  • Upon separation of employment (for any reason)
  • When job function no longer requires an airport-issued identification badge
  • Upon demand of the Pensacola International Airport
  • Upon conviction of any of the disqualifying crimes (see CFR Title 49: Transportation § 1542.209 letter (d) for a list of disqualifying crimes).

All badges that are lost, stolen or otherwise unaccounted for must be reported immediately to the Airport Operations Center (AOC) at (850) 436-5000.
