The ICR documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) invites public comment on one currently approved Information Collection Request (ICR), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number 1652–0041, abstracted below that we will submit to OMB for renewal in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). SUMMARY: The ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its expected burden. The collection involves the electronic submission of numerical ratings and written comments about the quality of training instruction from students who graduate from the Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS)/Canine Training and Evaluation Section (CTES) Explosives Detection Canine Handlers Course, Passenger Screening Canine Handler Course and the Supervisor/ Trainer Seminars. DATES: Send your comments by February 11, 2013.

The state and local personnel participate under agency specific cooperative agreements in that portion of the the TSA Grant program administered by the National Canine Program (NCP). The Handler Training Assessment Survey captures from graduating students numerical ratings and written comments about the quality of training instruction at the FAMS/ CTES Explosives Detection Canine Handlers Course, Passenger Screening Canine Handler Course and the Supervisor/Trainer Seminars. The data is collected electronically through the NCP Canine Web site (a secure Web site accessible by authorized personnel only) and provides valuable feedback to the Supervisory Agent in Charge (SAC), CTES, instructional staff and supervisors on how the training material was presented and received. The Assessment Surveys are mandatory for students who successfully complete training, but the students may remain anonymous. Once reviewed, the feedback is used to improve the course curriculum and course of instruction. The estimated burden is approximately one hour per participant, 180 hours per calendar year (average 180 students per calendar year) to read, answer, and submit the questions.
