Homeland Security

This certificate offers students an in-depth understanding of the interrelated duties, relationships and issues of the agencies associated with Homeland Security. Upon completion of the certificate, students will be able to identify, describe and analyze security threats as individuals and in coordinated team set-tings. It is based on a model developed by Global Corporate College and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Tunxis is currently partnering with both agencies to offer these three courses to TSA employees. Within two years, this certificate will be offered to the general public with the benefit of having these courses approved by the TSA, making students with this certificate more desirable for TSA employment.
