Upon registering for a voluntary advanced self-defense training class provided by TSA, the collection process involves requesting the name, contact information, airline employee number, and Social Security number (last four digits) from flight and cabin crew members of air carriers to verify employment status and to confirm eligibility to participate.

Additionally, each participant is asked to complete a voluntary course evaluation form after the training concludes.
