Texas Certified Tactical Academy (TCTA) is a Texas Department of Public Safety-approved and licensed training academy. In addition to our brick-and-mortar location in Round Rock/Pflugerville, Texas, we are excited to offer an online version of the Texas DPS-RSD official Level 2 non-commissioned and Level-3 Commission training courses.
Our Level-2 and Level-3 courses are authorized to be taken online as Texas DPS-RSD regulations no longer require that it “must be given in a classroom environment”; they removed that statement years ago which opens the door to an online class for the Level-2 non-Commission course and the Level-3 Commission course (something other schools have been doing for over two years).
Our class is broken down into two parts:
Part 1– Online course material to read and study at home using our site, and…
Part 2 – In-person instruction is required at our school with our staff. Part-2 instruction required at our school will consist of Weaponless Defense, Baton, Pepper Spray, Firearms with range qualification, and the final state exam. There is a short quiz on this site but that is not the state exam which will be given at our school in person. All students must attend the dates we have posted on our schedule (and on your invoice), for completion of Part-2 and not attempt to pick other days.
NOTE: This course is not intended to be the only official training your employees/security officers should receive. Texas DPS-RSD did not create this course to be an “end-all-be-all” of security training; you need additional training and experience far beyond this course to perform adequate security for any client as this is a basic intro to security course. Yes, it fulfills the Texas DPS requirements but again you will need more training to operate correctly, and safely in this industry.
Upon successful completion of the course and passing the 100-question exam (given at our school in person), including range qualification and all classroom activities, students will be given a certificate of completion from us which is recognized and approved by Texas DPS-RSD and any licensed security company in Texas.
This is the official Level-3 Commission security course:
NOTE: HANDCUFFING, PEPPER SPRAY, and BATON chapters will be covered more in detail in our classroom (during Part 2). Defensive Tactics (weaponless defense), and the Firearm chapters will have some basic course material to review here; however, there will be more additional and hands-on portions that will be done (required) in the classroom and/or the range once you arrive for Part-2.
