Course Description:

Current GSA inspectors may renew their qualification as inspector by taking the GSA Approved Container Inspection Update course. GSA Inspector qualification is valid for three years and may be taken by MBA USA or LSI graduates. Renewal may be taken up to six months before or three months after current expiration date.

Classified material is stored in containers made to exacting specifications. These are commonly called "GSA Containers". They are not cheap. Some containers, although old, are still quite usable. Others, may appear new and to be in perfect condition, but have concealed vulnerabilities. With our nation's security at risk, we must do everything to be certain our classified information is stored in containers that provide the protection intended. This course was developed to take the guesswork out of whether a container is suitable or not. It allows for the identification of containers that are vulnerable, yet permits the preservation of containers that are not being used due to minor flaws such as lack of a GSA label. Many such otherwise sound containers are currently shunned for this very reason. However, without inspection by a specially trained person it is difficult to distinguish between sound and fatally flawed containers!

Inspectors must be meticulous in their workmanship, maintain ongoing contact with the training organization, and attend continuing education programs as required by GSA.


The following is covered in detail:

  • GSA approved container and vault door Federal Specifications
  • GSA approved lock specifications
  • The Federal Standard for container and vault door neutralization and repair
  • Detailed coverage of recertification procedures and responsibilities
  • Instruction on completing mandatory inspection reports
