DFW airport provides a free training program for all drivers on the Air Operations Area (AOA) of the airport.
The AOA is divided into two parts:
- The Aircraft Movement Area (AMA), commonly referred to as simply the Movement Area
- The Non-Movement Area.
The Movement Area is heavily regulated by the FAA. It consists of the areas outside of the Non-Movement Area Boundary Marking and includes the taxiways and runways. All vehicle operators seeking unescorted access to the Movement Area must be authorized by the Vice President of Operations and must complete training prior to entering the Movement Area unescorted. The Non-Movement Area consists of those areas within the Non-Movement Area Boundary Marking and includes the ramps around the central terminal buildings and also the ramps around the hangars and cargo facilities.
The driver training and certification program is a part of DFW Airport Operations Technical Training (TechTrain) program and is offered to all drivers with access to the AOA free of charge. We offer certification for a number of different driver types.
