This certificate offers students an in-depth understanding of the interrelated duties, relationships and issues of the agencies associated with Homeland Security. Upon completion of the certificate, students will be able to identify, describe and analyze security threats as individuals and in coordinated team set-tings. It is based on a model developed by Global Corporate College and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Tunxis is currently partnering with both agencies to offer these three courses to TSA employees. Within two years, this certificate will be offered to the general public with the benefit of having these courses approved by the TSA, making students with this certificate more desirable for TSA employment.

(a) Prerequisite and/or co-requisite required.A merger of Connecticut's 12 community colleges is underway. As a part of this merger, modifications will be made to academic programs. Students who do not complete their programs by the end of the Spring 2023 term will be matched with the Connecticut State Community College (CT State) program that most closely aligns with the student's Spring 2023 program and is offered at the current Tunxis Community College location. The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption. Further details can be found and will be updated on the Frequently Asked Questions page: ct.edu/ctstate/academics.
