If you are interested in Re-Qualifying  as armed commissioned security officer you will be required to attend eight(8) hours of classroom/firearms training in accordance with the rules set forth in Chapter 1702 of the Texas Occupations Code.  A portion of this training involves Continuing Education with a course on “Ethics”.


NOTE:  As of Sept. 1st, 2005 (as amended by House Bill 1132 in the 79th Texas Legislature) Shotgun Qualification is no longer required as part of an "Original Commission" or "ReQualification."  If you would like to include the Shotgun as part of your training it can be provided for an additional $25 fee.  Your certificate of training will reflect that you qualified and were proficient with a Shotgun.  Your commission card will also reflect Shotgun status which will allow you to carry a Shotgun in performance of your duties as a Commissioned Security Officer (provided your current company policy(employer) does not prohibit the carry of Shotguns.)


Topics presented are:  Ethics and Standards of Conduct, Use of Deadly Force, Violations by Commissioned Officers, Standards of Conduct, Function of Security Officers, Arrest Authority, Article 14.01 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Article 18.16 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Chapter 42.01 of Texas Penal Code, Chapter 9 Use of Deadly Force, Use of Force Concepts, Firearms Marksmanship, NRA Certified Firearm Safety Procedures, and Handcuffing Techniques.


The course fee includes the use of a new 9mm Semi-Automatic Handgun & required ammunition, as well as pre-paid range fees and use of hearing and eye protection.


Students who which to qualify with their own handgun, rather than a new Academy owned weapon, must provide fifty(50) rounds of 9mm or 38 calibur ammunition and a quality manufactured handgun.  No discount in the course fee will be offered for students using their own handgun.  However, you must qualify with at least a 9mm semi-automatic or 38 caliber revolver (as required by Chapter 1702 of the Texas Occupations Code).  Any handgun with a smaller caliber than a 9mm or 38 will not be accepted under State Law.  If you wish to qualify with your own Handgun prior arrangements must be made with the Academy.  Otherwise, you will be expected to qualify with the Academy supplied 9mm.  Please call us directly to discuss qualifying with your own handgun.
