Middlesex County Passport Office Undergoes State Department Certification

MAY 20, 2010 – Middlesex County Clerk Elaine M. Flynn announced today that all passport acceptance agents within County’s Passport Division have passed a new federally mandated passport certification program.

Representatives from the National Passport Center hosted a two-day passport certification course on April 28 and 29.  County Clerk’s Office employees were instructed on new passport regulations and on their individual obligations as acceptance agents. Employees needed to pass a test at the end of the training to be able to continue in their passport acceptance duties.

“New regulations required by the federal government have increased the need for individuals to have passports, even those who may not use them strictly for travel” said Middlesex County Clerk Elaine M. Flynn.  “The training centered on the new regulations, and now since all our acceptance agents have passed, we can ensure that this office can continue to provide the most efficient and up-to-date service for our residents.”

Flynn added: “Together the employees of the Middlesex County Clerk’s passport division have a total of 55 years of experience as passport acceptance agents, and I am very proud of all of them for completing their certification.”
