For many of Securiguard's positions based at our Vancouver Airport Branch, candidates must have the ability to obtain Restricted Area Identification Card (RAIC). This clearance involves a rigorous background check, based on 5 years of history in Canada.

This role also requires an Airside Vehicle Operator's Permit (AVOP). The airside of an airport is a specialized working environment governed by rules designed to prevent accidents, avoid property damage and minimize the risk of injury to personnel. An Airside Vehicle Operator's Permit (AVOP) certifies that a person is trained to operate vehicles safely airside in gate, runway and aircraft taxi areas. AVOP applicants must prove both a need and right to operate a vehicle airside. Applicants must also pass a written and practical exam.
