On September 20, 2004, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published an interim final rule that requires flight schools to ensure that its employees who have direct contact with students receive both initial and annually recurrent security awareness training. The rule also transfers the background check and approval process for foreign students seeking U.S. flight training from the Department of Justice (DOJ) to TSA, and expands the applicability of the background check requirements to cover all foreign flight training students.
