MDC teams up with the TSA to provide advanced training for TSA employees.

Certificate Program Enhances National Security

Classes recently began in an innovative program pairing MDC expertise with the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to provide advanced training for TSA employees. The Homeland Security Certificate program offers five courses, with the same courses and certificate available to MDC students. TSA employees study in their own cohort, enabling them to exchange information freely.

Courses cover intelligence analysis, transportation and border security, and other critical topics, opening avenues to continued education for TSA students who may not have been in a classroom for a while and might continue to advanced or professional degrees after completing the program.
