Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC) applies to WHOI's dock, Facilities and Vessels as a result our Facilities and Vessels being regulated by the Marine Transportation Security Act. We're regulated because of the size and class of our vessels and the fact that they are members of SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) and make international voyages.
A TWIC card will be necessary to have unescorted access to the WHOI dock when any regulated MTSA vessel is at the dock in Active status. This also includes access to the Iselin building, Alvin High Bay and the machine shops. It will be necessary to carry your TWIC card on your person.
If you are enrolling and receive a TWIC card, please review the next tab, TWIC Training WHOI Employees and email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate you have done so.
