Vehicle Inspection Guide Training Support Package (TSP)


The Technical Support Working Group has released the Vehicle Inspection Guide Training Support Package (VIG TSP) to support the use of the publication by the same name and for the security training of federal, state, and local government personnel, port security operations personnel, and others involved with screening vehicles at security checkpoints.

The VIG TSP contains a 280-page course to train personnel that may be involved with the inspection of vehicles to determine various indicators of suspect hidden Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The VIG TSP binder contains the 280-page instructor manual, a CD-ROM containing all course materials, and a DVD containing the classroom support materials. The VIG TSP supports the field use of the Vehicle Inspection Guide publication, available as GPO Stock number 008-001-00184-3.

This TSP replaces the former Vehicle Inspection Checklist (VIC) TSP SN 008-001-00162-2.
