Security Search Techniques: Personnel

Section 9.15 of the ISPS Code states "... all those seeking to board a ship should be liable to search." Conducting an effective search of all personnel boarding your ship is now an important and required part of ship and port security.

Security Search Techniques: Personnel looks at this important topic by taking the viewer aboard a ship and demonstrating actual search techniques used to uncover contraband and prohibited items. We talk to a security expert to learn not just how to search but why. We observe actual mariners demonstrating the 8 essential methods of search. We see what may be required at the three different security levels. We then learn what to do if a security breach is discovered.


  • Searching carry-on luggage and personal effects
  • Metal detection procedure
  • Physical search procedure
  • How to inspect quickly yet thoroughly
  • Conducting random searches
  • Proper response to a suspicious object

Use in conjunction with the Maritime Security Awareness Training Digital Workbook to maximize your learning experience.
