UXO Clearance Requirements
by: Steve Cassidy

Joe, thanks again for a great question! Clearances generally aren't required for most UXO work.

Prior going to UXO school, you'll need a background check done but that's no different than what most employers do any way.

EOD Techs have clearances so if they're working the grid, then it's more cost effective to them but isn't always the case.

You will probably end up getting a temporary clearance to work a specific area on a specific base. Your clearance has no reciprocity with any other base or even a different area of the same base your on.

If you'd like to begin getting a clearance of some kind, I highly recommend getting the TWIC card. It's a clearance from DHS to primarily work near ports.

There are many UXO sites along our coasts and having a TWIC may just put you ahead of everyone else that may be hired.

Hope this helps!
