    Qualifications For Level III (gun class for commissioned officers)
  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Must have completed the six hour Level II + 45 hours of Level III Classroom Instruction
  • Must Have Diploma of Completion from an authorized Level III Training Facility
  • These are required to satisfy the Texas Department of Public Safety Private Security Bureau
    Effective Dec 1st, 2011 this includes 12 hrs. DT, 4 hrs. cuffing, and a host of other things added to the old 30 hr. program. 45 + 6 Lev(2) = 51 hrs & 6 days

    If you are doing your due diligence in researching alternatives, please be aware that many other schools in our area have still not embraced this new program or the 6 hr. requirement for Lev.II and many have class times of less than 45 hours duration that do not meet this minimum requirements. Our instructors and our courses are all of the very highest standards.
    With our Guaranteed Paycheck Program*, you can even defer payment for any Level III (3) Course- even the range fee can be deferred with S.A.O.T.

    (*some restrictions apply, contact us for details.)
