Training Essentials For Xray Course
In This Article
The detection of threat items in baggage using Xray is not as easy as many people may assume. On the contrary, it’s an extremely challenging task and one of the most demanding roles in the aviation security system. Xray screening of baggage is one of the most important and familiar front-line security measures used to help prevent the infiltration of weapons and explosive devices on board aircraft. Therefore, it is vital that the training of screening personnel is of the highest possible quality as it has a direct correlation on the competency and effectiveness of the security screening performed.
TREFOX combines narrated video, animated demonstrations and an interactive Xray simulation to show how an Xray machine works. The programme covers basic health and safety as well as more complex subjects such as the interpretation of Xray images. Featured chapters cover:
1. History of Xray
2. Nature of Xrays
3. The Xray Tube
4. Penetration & Absorption

6. Xray Machine Features
7. Prohibited Items

Is This Course Right For You?
TREFOX is designed to provide Xray training to new recruits with no previous experience of working within an Xray screening scenario.
However, the TREFOX course may also be of interest to more experienced security screeners who wish to better understand Xray technology, and managers in any airline/airport function who wish to broaden their understanding of aviation security operations.
