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 30 days before expiration, which is generally your birthday. 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:

  1. Badge and Fingerprint / STA Application(This form will not be accepted unless it is signed by your Authorized Signer.)
  2. Privacy Act Notice
  3. Return Badge Compliance Form

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:

  1. You are not a U.S. citizen
  2. You hold a non-immigrant Visa
  3. 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:

  1. Upon expiration of the badge (it is a serious security violation to display an expired badge)
  2. Upon separation of employment (for any reason)
  3. When job function no longer requires an airport-issued identification badge
  4. Upon demand of the Pensacola International Airport
  5. 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.

My Company Needs Authorization To Obtain Badges

The following information will introduce your company to the badging procedures at the Pensacola International Airport. To begin, if your company does not have a current agreement with the Pensacola International Airport, please contact the Airport at (850) 436-5000 to have your “Authorization to Badge form” completed. Your Airport contact person will obtain all the necessary information from you and the completed form will be submitted to Airport Operations. This form, which is signed-off by the Airport Security Coordinator, outlines your company’s access level, driving privileges (if necessary) and indicates your company’s security training requirements.

Next, the Authorized Signature Letter form must be completed. This form includes one Primary Authorized Signer and one Secondary Authorized Signer who are authorized to sign the Badge and Fingerprint / STA Application. The Badging Office will only accept this form with one or two signatories (and it is highly recommended to have two Authorized Signers for companies with more than ten employees). Additional signatories are not permitted. Additionally, this form requires both a printed name and a signature on the form. All employees listed on the Authorized Signature Letter form must obtain an airport-issued identification badge (see "Badges") by completing a Criminal History Record Check (CHRC), Security Threat Assessment (STA), security training and the Authorized Signer training.

The Authorized Signer training for your Authorized Signer(s) consists of a module on the IET (Interactive Employee Training) computer and the “Authorized Signer Training form.” The computer training and the form must be completed in the Airport Badging Office by the Primary and Secondary Authorized Signers. Please allow at least 30 minutes for this training. The Authorized Signer Training will communicate the signatory’s responsibilities and duties and requires all signatories to certify they have completed and understand the training. The Authorized Signer Training is required annually. Contact the Badging Office at (850) 436-5113 to make an appointment to complete your AS training.
