Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I just came back from the Oct. 29-30 class. Most people registered for the class around March 2017. The class has lots of great information!

The director of training told us that they are running 16-20 months wait. Also, there is little demand for the class from school staff (future students) due to nearly all major school districts have not approved the SSO (School Safety Officer) program, thus there is little demand for the instructors to teach the class.

Back from the course.

One item for those who have already taken it. If it didn't come up, in regards to students taking the course from you, the LTC shoot/test pre-qual should meet the 90% instructor standard and not the 75% LTC standard...for obvious reasons.

For those going in the coming weeks.

- Local weather forecast as of this morning was for pretty solid rain chances through mid-November. You'll be shooting rain or shine due to tight scheduling so take appropriate gear.

We got lucky on the rain.

- They mistakenly cut and pasted from the old CHL firearms requirements. Take a 9mm or larger, and semi-auto only. I don't think any instructor would, but no sub gauge pistols or revolvers.

- Don't forget your hand towel. You'll need 2 mags, no more required or needed.

- You'll have more than enough time to leave and go get lunch.

- They've paved CR240. I thought for a second I'd taken the wrong turn.

- A surprising number of people speed on HWY 195 which has to be the easiest hunting grounds for DPS in all of the state.

- The Best Western Plus in Georgetown was clean and very convenient to I-35, but has walls as thin as any cheap motel you've ever stayed at. Wished I'd used some of my points and just stayed at the Ramada in Round Rock.

For those still on the waiting list. DPS is hoping to increase the class size. They've already increased the class frequency.

Have fun!
Thank you for the tips.

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I can remember for sure but I think we are not allowed to carry into the classroom/building. Am I correct?

DPS just confirmed me for the October class.

If anybody else from the board is in that one, let me know.

I mailed mine in end of January 2017. They cashed the check on Feb 10th. I'll be taking the course roughly a year and nine months after application.
Ok, thanks. It looks I am getting closer.

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

I have been on the waiting list for the class since March 2017. I just called DPS and they said there is no update on my class. isn't one year wait excessive?
