Making Appointments

Appointments are required for all new & renewal badges. Please make an appointment at least 2 days in advance by contacting Airport Operations at (609)645-7895 *4702.
When scheduling an appointment for renewals, make sure you schedule enough time to take all applicable training.

Badge Renewals

All badge renewals will require appointments. Upon Renewal, you must retake all applicable training certifications/testing. Badges can be renewed up to 1 month before expiration. Badge holders that let their badge expire for less than 30 days will be charged a $25.00 re-activation fee. Badges that are expired for more than 30 days will have to go through the entire badge process again.
For example, if you have a Non-Driver, Sterile or AOA badge, you will have to retake the Security Identification Display Area (SIDA) test. In addition, if you hold driving privileges for the ramp, you will have to take the Non-Movement Area Driving test, and if you are certified to drive on the movement area, you will have to retake the Runway Safety and Incursion Prevention, and the FAR Part 139.329—Pedestrians & Ground Vehicles tests. Please schedule the appropriate times you will need to complete all tests.
