Do I need to get a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) card or is that just for immigrants?

you will be working at shipping ports
you will be picking up/delivering at shipping ports
you will be going onto military bases
you will be going into warehouses that have high security.
procedure is almost like the hazmat.........
you fill out a form, you get finger-printed, you get a photo, you pay (this time) $135.00
a TWIC card is good for 5 years, and must be renewed. it can be taken away from you if you violate policies.
some employers require it
some employers prefer it
some employers don't care about it right now.
good to have............??
well in a way yes.........you would have gone thru homeland security checks, and FBI checks, so this would prove that you have a clean background
do i have one........?>?
have i ever needed it.........??
Expecially any place that has a lot of armorment or missiles ect.
The US Army proving grounds in Yuma, AZ doesn't require it. I deliever new GM trucks / SUV's there and they convert them into Border Patrol units. Your right about Hueneme, they have a truck gate, the sentry's there have the process under control. The TWIC is enforced by the US Coast Guard. Every time I've been carded, it was by the Coast Guard.
