Appointments are required for processing of the applications listed above. If you can’t make an appointment, you must provide the Pass Office with at least 24 hours notice.

If you are applying to obtain a transportation security clearance for the first time or if you are renewing your clearance, you must first complete the Canadian Airport Security Program (CASAP) which is an online course comprised of two modules (available in both English and French). To access the course, log in to http://waa.protraining.com/ with credentials provided by your employer. When complete, print a copy or send it electronically to the Pass Office at passclerk@waa.ca. At your first appointment, if a copy of the certificate is not given to the Pass Office or if an electronic copy has not been sent to them prior, the appointment will be cancelled and will need to be rebooked.

The best way to make your experience at the Pass Office quick and easy is to double check that your forms are filled out correctly, and that you have all the documents you need when you go for your appointment.
