Although using the course feedback tab is strictly voluntary, TSA estimates ten (10) minutes per crew member for those who complete the evaluation, and 10 crew members will complete the evaluation each year for a total of 1.67 hours (10 crew members × 10 minutes).

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0028, Flight Crew Self-Defense Training--
Registration and Evaluation. TSA is seeking an extension of the ICR, 
currently approved under OMB control number 1652-0028, to continue 
compliance with a statutory mandate. Under 49 U.S.C. 44918(b), TSA is 
required to develop and provide a voluntary advanced self-defense 
training program for flight and cabin crew members of air carriers 
providing scheduled passenger air transportation.
    TSA must collect specific information to provide the program to 
eligible participants, as well as assess training quality. This 
information includes limited biographical information from flight and 
cabin crew members to confirm their eligibility to participate in this 
training. TSA uses the information to confirm the eligibility of the 
participant by contacting the participant's employer.
    TSA collects the following information at the time of registration 
online: name of the crew member, airline affiliation, position, crew 
member airline identification (ID) number, crew member contact 
information (home mailing address, home telephone number and/or email 
address), and the city and state of the TSA Law Enforcement/Federal Air 
Marshals Service field office where the course will be taken. Upon 
attending class, crew members are asked to show ID to verify their 
identity against registration records and to sign the class attendance 
roster.
    In addition, TSA asks each crew member to complete an Injury Waiver 
Form during the registration process, or before the training is 
conducted. The Injury Waiver Form requests the employee's airline, 
airline ID number, signature, and date, and is intended to limit any 
liability to TSA or its facilities should a crew member become injured 
during the training.
    TSA also asks trainees to complete a voluntary evaluation of the 
training upon completion of the course. Participants may assess the 
training quality and provide anonymous and voluntary comments by 
clicking on the electronic feedback link located on the registration 
site.
    The estimated number of annual respondents is 3,500 and estimated 
annual burden is 350 hours. TSA estimates the online registration 
requires five (5) minutes and the injury waiver and class roster sign-
in process requires one (1) minute per crew member. This amounts to 350 
hours [(3,500 crew members x 6 minutes)]. Although using the course 
feedback tab is strictly voluntary, TSA estimates ten (10) minutes per 
crew member for those who complete the evaluation, and 10 crew members 
will complete the evaluation each year for a total of 1.67 hours (10 
crew members x 10 minutes). TSA estimates the total annual hours for 
this information collection to be 361.67 (350 +1.67).
