Texas Certified Tactical Academy (TCTA) is a Texas Department of Public Safety-approved and licensed training academy. We have an actual ‘brick and mortar’ location in Round Rock/ Pflugerville, Texas, and we are excited to offer an online version of the Texas DPS-RSD official Level 2 Non-Commissioned training course. Many security companies find it is easier to have their employees/officers take this online course in their office or at home, instead of sending their employees/officers to us each time they hire or process a new member of their team- so we listened to them and implemented this course. Although we do recommend taking all courses in person at our school so that you can have that personal instruction from our staff, have the ability to ask questions, get help with other areas, or have things explained differently – this online course does provide a convenient way to be certified from your home or office quickly. Please understand this is only a course and NOT a license to work security in the state. You still will need to apply and register with Texas DPS-RSD, pay fees to them and submit to a fingerprint and background check after you complete the course.
This course is authorized to be taken online as Texas DPS-RSD regulations no longer state that it “must be given in a classroom environment” and no longer state that it “must be given by a certified instructor” (removed years ago). This opens the door to an online class for the Level-2 Non-Commission course (although to note, we are a certified school with certified instructors anyway). To also point out, Texas DPS-RSD ‘removed’ the six-hour time requirement years ago, so again that makes this class, regardless of how long you take to complete the course, it still complies with the State’s minimum course regulations.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our site and providing us with the opportunity to share the Level-2 Non-Commission basic class with you online. We hope to interest you to view our main site and invite you to continue your education in the security industry with the various classes we offer found on our main site.
We deeply value your business and look forward to a continued relationship with you. You can click “sign up” below or continue to explore our site.
