    GovCentral article on Security Clearances

    Here's a short article on security clearances for those who are unfamiliar with them. If you're headed to En Route, you're required to receive a Secret clearance. Terminal positions are a Position of Public Trust, which is less involved and typically goes through much faster.

    Clearances can take a while to go through. My own observation's been that they seem to go faster for ATC than for private companies. Maybe they get moved up the queue since it's considered a more pressing need?

    If you'd like to read more, there's a pretty good (and long) FAQ here, in PDF form: http://www.clearancejobs.com/security_clearance_faq.pdf

    I am in the Air Force Reserve and have a current TS Clearance. Do you know if the FAA will do a separate clearance?

    I'm sure you're right but that just sounds really "off". A level twelve is a level twelve. I can't for the life of me understand why any facility that starts with the letter "Z", requires a diff/higher security clearance. But then again it is the government so who the hell knows. I know there is a waiver in which a controller who is hired can start training/working while the SF96 is still being processed...

    You can control under a conditional clearance. They are given within a couple weeks while the secret is being processed in its entirety.

    It's true about the Enroute facilities though. Completely different security questioneer and everything. Enroute uses SF86 (Secret) and terminal uses SF85 (Postion of public trust).
    Applied PUBNATS 5,6
    AT-SAT = WQ
    Selected PUBNAT 6 for ZDV = Accepted!

    It's not based on traffic levels. [strike]It's based on airspace and what's inside of it. A tower or TRACON position has a comparatively small amount of airspace to handle, and infrequently or rarely will handle things of a security sensitive nature. En Route controllers have military operations, VIP movements, and other considerations.[/strike]

    Edit: I'm wrong. And also, we don't have a strikethrough tag here. Anyway, read this instead: GovCentral article on Security Clearances
