In an official Transportation Security Administration (TSA) blog post last week, TSA Administrator John Pistole addresses the confusion about whether or not the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC card) that is issued to people requiring unescorted access to America's maritime transportation system, can also be used at airport security checkpoints. Pistole clarifies that indeed a TWIC card can be used for identification when passing through airport security. He also notes that he "will ensure that TSA officers receive the necessary refresher training to recognize TWIC cards."
