  Container Inspection Training and Assistance Team CITAT
In 1994, the Coast Guard initiated the Container Inspection Program to inspect and regulate maritime shipments of containerized hazardous materials. In order to set a uniform standard of inspection practices and train new inspectors, the Container Inspection Training and Assistance Team (CITAT) was formed. The Coast Guard co-located this new training unit with the Department of Transportations Safety Institute at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This provided a central location for experts and instructors in all modes of hazardous materials transportation to work together and share information. In 2001, the Coast Guard recognized the need to supplement the in-house Explosive Handling Supervisor course being taught at TRACEN Yorktown. CITAT developed a road show course that can be brought to units that oversee explosive load outs. Today, CITAT provides Coast Guard Sectors and port partners with a multitude of services including: Container Inspection training, Explosive Load Out training, MASFO (Multi-Agency Strike Force Operations) support, Industry Outreach and Education seminars, Inspection supplies (forms and seals, Hazmat transportation advice and assistance and DOD movement inspection support.
