The Land Transportation Antiterrorism Training Program (LTATP) was developed by the United States Department of Transportation and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. This program was developed in 1998 and has undergone curriculum review conferences several times to ensure that the material presented is the most current available. The LTATP is unique in its design, recognizing that security at most land transportation systems is accomplished by a cooperative effort of Federal, State, local and contract personnel. This program was designed to protect the land transportation infrastructure to include rail, mass transit and bus operations and most importantly passengers and employees. It will address the needs of all personnel charged with security responsibilities. The LTATP can be conducted at an agency-specific training site within the United States. The LTATP program has received Police Officer Standards Training (P.O.S.T.) certification in several states.
