Airport ID Badges/ Secure Identification Display Area (SIDA) Badge
All employees of companies conducting business at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) must be authorized to work on airport property. This authorization is obtained by completing security training and receiving a security badge issued by the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) before beginning work at the airport.
Once issued, badges must be renewed annually up to 30 days prior to its expiration date.
To obtain an airport-issued badge, employees must complete an application and make an appointment to attend a security training class. The JAA holds computer-based training classes every Monday through Thursday from 7:20 a.m. to 3:40 p.m., and classes take about an hour to complete.
Contact the badging office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (904) 741 – 2016, to make an appointment.
Badging Office/Training Room
The badging office and training room are located in the lower level of the airport. Elevator and stairs are located in the hallway between Sam Sneed’s and Insight in the central courtyard. Once on the lower level, simply follow the appropriate signage to the Access Control Office.
New hires attending security training for the first time may park for free, except in valet parking. The hourly and daily garages are closest to the terminal. A full list of parking options can be found on the JAX website. Bring the parking ticket to the badging office for validation.
All companies conducting business on the airport are required to designate a Certifying Official per TSA Directive 1542-04-08J and SD 1542-04-08M. The Certifying Official confirms the employee is authorized to work at the airport. Training for certifying officials is held Fridays at 10:00 a.m. and needs to be scheduled in advance with the Access Control Manager.
Phone: (904)741 - 2016
All JAX photo ID badge holders and Certifying Officials authorizing such badges must be in compliance with Transportation Security Regulations Part 1542 and Part 1544. The procedures and requirements for such are governed and monitored by the Transportation Security Administration. Failure to meet these requirements can result in citations and fines for the company/agency and Jacksonville International Airport.
