Extension of Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review: Flight Crew Self-Defense Training-Registration and Evaluation
Document Number: 2011-26971
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-10-19
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
This notice announces that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has forwarded the Information Collection Request (ICR), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number 1652-0028, abstracted below to OMB for review and approval of an extension of the currently approved collection under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its expected burden. TSA published a Federal Register notice, with a 60-day period soliciting comments, of the following collection of information on May 12, 2011 (76 FR 27656). 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. Eligible training participants are flight and cabin crew members of a U.S. airline conducting scheduled passenger operations. As such, on attending class, in person, crew members are asked to show a second form of identification to confirm registration information. See 49 U.S.C. 44918. Additionally, each participant is asked to complete a voluntary course evaluation form after the training concludes. The registration process was not mentioned in the 60-day notice, but is part of the process. Registration adds approximately five minutes per person to the burden of this collection.
