Texas School Safety Certification Program 

($850) Fee is based on 6 attendees from the DFW area

This Texas DPS Program designed to train and evaluate educators to carry defensive handguns on school campus.  The Texas D.P.S. has approved training for school districts and teachers.  We take it to the next level of training based on your districts needs

As required by the Texas Department of Public Safety we will cover;

  • Protection of Students
  • Interaction of license holders with first responders
  • Tactics for denying an intruder entry into a classroom or school facility
  • Methods for increasing a license holder's accuracy with a handgun while under duress

 

Upon successful completion of the course, the participant will receive a Texas D.P.S. Proof of Training Form.  Completed courses will be then filed with Texas Department of Public Safety as a part of their License to Carry in accordance with Texas Government Code 411.1901.

This level of training is unsurpassed in Texas.  Not only does it give the school dristricts a liability shield against claims, but it gives the School administration staff a better understanding of how to prevent additional loss of life in the event of an Active Shooter
