Entry Requirements for Federal Facilities
Effective July 21, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security will begin implementing REAL ID Act requirements for visitors who present state-issued driver’s licenses as IDs at restricted federal facilities. Some classes which are listed on Trainex are held at such facilities.
EPA employees simply need to present their EPA Employee ID to gain access.
Other Federal Employees
Employees of other Federal agencies will need to present their Federal employee ID badge and will need to be escorted to the area in which the training will take place.
For a member of the general public, you will need to present a REAL ID compliant state-issued identification card. Please note that state-issued ID's from Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota*, Montana, New York*, Oklahoma, and Washington* ARE NOT acceptable for entry. Enhanced security ID cards from Minnesota, New York and Washington are acceptable.
If your ID was issued by a non-REAL ID state, you will need to provide additional forms of identification. Acceptable additional identification are: Federal ID card, U.S. passport, Permanent Resident Card ("green card"), Foreign Passport, or U.S. Military ID.
If you don't have one of the aforementioned, you must bring two of the following: School ID, Voter Registration card, Native American tribal document, Social Security card, birth certificate, U.S. citizen ID card, student green card or Employment Authorization document issued by the Department of Homeland Security. One of these must have a photograph.
Members of the general public must be escorted at all times.
