Seebald and Associates also offers all students one year of continuing education through webinars specific to facility security. This course is Maritime Administration (MARAD) Certified and Coast Guard Accepted.
Personnel with Specific Security Duties Training:

In addition to employees, the course is also valuable for any long-term contractors, and contractors who will work unescorted on the regulated facility.
> FACILITY SECURITY ASSESSMENTS (FSA) AND FACILITY SECURITY PLANS (FSP)
Seebald and Associates' extensive process for conducting Facility Security Assessment assists our clients in identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities and developing potential strategies for mitigation. The Assessment provides the basis for building a comprehensive Facility Security Plan that is designed to exceed Coast Guard regulatory requirements. The FSPs are designed to be a working resource for the Facility Security Officer.
As a direct result of our extensive Coast Guard experience, Seebald and Associates Facility Security Plans are highly regarded by the United States Coast Guard.
As part of the FSA and FSP process, Seebald and Associates provides ongoing support and consulting for one year following approval of your FSP.
> FACILITY SECURITY AUDITS
Seebald and Associates provides Facility Security Audit services to all regulated facilities as required annually by 33CFR105. Seebald and Associates audits cover all regulatory requirements. We begin by conducting a complete FSP review, an on-site physical audit, an annual exercise, a required drill, and Security Awareness training as needed. An extensive follow-up report completes this in-depth process.
