Pepper Spray Course: 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 thrilled to offer a variety of online courses.
Our newly released online Pepper Spray class is offered 100% online. You are not required to be sprayed by State or Federal law to carry it, nor are you required to be sprayed by DPS; maybe your employer does, but we do not for certification purposes.
From a safety and health concern, even the Federal government (OSHA), put out a statement that “spraying someone with O.C. (during training) is an unacceptable health risk.”
Many training academies and instructors are unaware of that and are still spraying students during training; this is why we no longer require that you be sprayed in order to attend and complete our course (due to the health risk).
The fact that other schools and instructors do not know about that risk should be an indication to you that they do not conduct ongoing research into the subject matter at hand, and that their programs are outdated.
Yes, unarmed guards can carry Pepper Spray and do not need to be a Level-3 commissioned officer to do so. If you are taking the Level-3 Commission course, DO NOT sign up for this class, as it is already included for FREE with each Level-3 Commission course.
This class is intended for unarmed security officers that have not attended the Level-3 course but want to carry Pepper Spray and Level-3 officers that may not have gotten certified elsewhere (from other schools).
Our program is not a cut-and-paste out of the DPS manual; instead, we have created a very in-depth pepper spray course that surpasses the course DPS hands to instructors.
A certificate of completion will be given to each student that takes and passes this course.
NOTE: This class is NOT designed to certify Peace Officers (Law Enforcement) for their agency. This class is also NOT designed nor intended for civilians outside of the security industry. This class is only for Security officers/Security guards, Bodyguards, etc.
