Course overview

What is Threat Image Projection?

Threat Image Projection (TIP) is the projection of fictional threat Images into X-ray images of cabin baggage traffic to ensure both vigilance and threat image familiarisation of baggage screeners.

Course Overview

This course aims to give delegates an understanding of how TIP can be implemented and how the data generated can be used. The course will provide an overview of the threats posed to aviation security and how TIP regulatory requirements are addressing these. The course provides delegates with an understanding of how TIP has been implemented in the UK and provides insight into the best practices that have been developed. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss in detail how TIP is used to inform regulatory activity with UK Subject Matter Experts.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for individuals from National Aviation Authorities, government and industry who are responsible for implementation and oversight of aviation security screening regimes.

Key topics

  • Delegates will learn about the regulatory requirements for TIP in the UK, Europe and internationally.
  • Delegates will discuss the role TIP plays in the overall aviation security regime and how this has evolved.
  • Delegates will be provided with best practices in the development of TIP libraries.
  • The course will provide delegates with an opportunity to discuss with UK Subject Matter Experts how TIP data informs oversight activity and how regulators and operators can make best use of the data.

Course objectives

On completing the course delegates will demonstrate an understanding of the following:

  • The current aviation threat picture and the role of TIP in mitigating risks.
  • The relevant regulatory requirements, principles and practices of TIP usage.
  • How TIP can be implemented and the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders.
  • What the benefits of an effective TIP system are and how TIP data can be used by all parties.
  • The future opportunities and challenges of TIP implementation.


Due to the nature of the material being discussed, delegates should be in a role directly related to implementation or oversight of aviation security regimes. A basic appreciation of TIP would also be beneficial but not essential.

City & Guilds Assured

Assured status on a training programme provides validation and recognition for both the training provider and the learner, it is a symbol of learning excellence and quality and is reassurance that the training undertaken meets best practice standards.

Delegates who successfully complete an assured programme will get a City & Guilds certificate.  This demonstrates that the person has completed and been successful in training to a specific standard.  The City and Guilds brand is recognised worldwide too, so an assured certificate has value in any country.

Basically, ‘assured’ is a quality stamp that says “yes”, this programme meets the high standards of City & Guilds, and that they are happy to certificate it.
