What is a TWIC Card?
A TWIC Card is a Transportation Worker Identification Card that many plants and marine vessels require for workers who require unescorted access to secure areas.
We do receive job requests that do not require TWIC cards, but the majority of our jobs do require one.
How long does it take to get a TWIC Card?
Depending on processing times, it can take up to 6-8 weeks to receive your TIC card after applying. The sooner you apply and get the process started, the better for you to start applying for different positions!
