Does anyone have experience going from the TSA to FAA? I was recently offered a job with the TSA and a cat IV airport that checks 15 passengers a day. Is it worth investing so much time into training for the TSA? Ultimately I want to work for the FAA. I applied for the July 2018 ATS bid. My application says referred and I'm still waiting on a TOL. I'm just looking for something to do in the meantime.
