Again. You know typically AMEs don't go through CATSA?
Yes they do. I go through non-passenger screening multiple times every day (need a special tool/parts/wheels/consumables from the hangar/shed). All the major airports have a vehicle and personnel screening point before entering the ramp. It's a randomizer just like in the terminal.

Any AME or even rampy working the line goes through non-passenger screening.

Yes we have our tools some times but we throw them in the bin just like everything else.

When I see them horseplaying in the public eye, unclean, unkept and acting unprofessionally I’m going to question the “ authority” they’ve been granted.
I've seen all of this too. They look moronic. Want to be seen as professionals, act like it
Be honest here. They could dress and act like a professional, and people would still complain. They inconvenience you for no apparent reason or gain. No matter what they wear or how they behave, they give the impression they don't trust you by checking you when you walk through, and that triggers people.

As an AvCanada discussion grows longer:
-the probability of 'entitlement' being mentioned, approaches 1
-one will be accused of using bad airmanship

"typically" - no NPS if you go into the ramp from the hangar.

There are a lot of access points at airports where there isn't CATSA.

Yes we do. AME's/Rampies/Anyone wishing to be airside at any main terminal ramp i've worked at at YYC, YEG, YVR - have to go through NPS.

Even if they come from the hangar.

Keep an eye out for those quonsets/structures on the airside vehicle roads next time yeah visit a major airport. Those are the screening points. One gets out their truck and goes through the exact same CATSA screening as everyone else.
