For those with access to the paid portal of the Wall Street Journal. check out Scott McCartney's Middle Seat column on the TSA program. There are good and bad things about it, he says, Training for the program is very short: "Behavioral Detection Officers (BDOs) get five days of classroom training and two days of on-the-job training. They must pass a written test every year and be observed by a manager annually to stay certified. There is also recurrent training, TSA says."
So see what you think--perhaps a good thing; perhaps not.
