Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0041. Forms(s): TSA Form 1935–1. Affected Public: State and local law enforcement officers as well as TSA personnel who are trained to be TSA National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program (NEDCTP) canine handlers. Abstract: The FAMS/CTES Explosives Detection Canine Handlers Course, Passenger Screening Canine Handler Course and the Supervisor/Trainer Seminars are given to state and local law enforcement officers as well as TSA personnel who are trained to be canine handlers. The state and local personnel participate under agency specific cooperative agreements in that portion of 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 are collected electronically through the NCP Canine Web site (a secure Web site accessible only by authorized personnel) 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 when completing the survey. Once reviewed, the feedback is used to improve the course curriculum and course of instruction.
