Texas School Safety Certification - "Teacher License to Carry at School"
Texas School Safety Certification – “Teacher License to Carry at School” The Texas Department of Public Safety has recently developed the School Safety Certification course. This School Safety course trains current Texas License to Carry license holders that are faculty and staff in tactics to avoid the shooter, deny entry into an area, and the defense of the students. This is the only State certified course addressing school carry. The main training in this course will focus around the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy. This is a Texas Department of Public Safety Certification course designed to train educators to carry defensive handguns on school campus with the Texas D.P.S. approved training for school districts and teachers. This is a state-mandated two days of instruction that will place students into real-world scenarios and testing. Texas Department of Public Safety (TXDPS) Goals: • 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 When you complete the course, you will receive a Texas D.P.S.

First - you decide what type of training you are looking to have, whether it's "I got a brand new gun", Basic, Defensive, Texas License to carry or Instructor Training.
Second - are you wanting training that starts out as personal- private lesson or in a group or classroom setting.
Third - are you looking for during the week or weekends or flexible times?
Fourth - once you have these few thoughts laid out I would start calling different Instructors or ranges to see what they offer.
