On May 22, 2012, the Senate Committee on Appropriations issued Report Number 112-169.  This is the report accompanying Senate Bill 3216, the FY2013 appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security.  Among many other provisions, the Report states on p.16:

The Committee is concerned that the Department has not yet implemented section 821 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 (Public Law 111–281) to enhance and upgrade Federal waterfront facility security officer [FSO] training and lead to the Federal certification of FSOs. Implementation will help harmonize security training at marine terminals. The Committee directs DHS and the Coast Guard to move forward with all deliberate speed to issue these new national training requirements.
