Security Training Online

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 training course.


This course is authorized to be taken online as Texas DPS-RSD regulations no longer require that it must be given in a classroom environment, and no longer state “must be given by a certified instructor” which opens the door to an online Level-2 Non-Commission course.

Additionally, Texas DPS-RSD removed the six-hour time requirement years ago, so this class still complies with the minimum requirements of the State, regardless of the length of time it takes.


NOTE: This course is not intended to be the only official training your employees/security officers receive. Texas DPS-RSD did not create this short course to be the “end-all-be-all” of training. You need additional training far beyond this brief information to perform adequate security for any client as this is a basic intro to security course. Upon successful completion of the course and passing the 50-question exam, students will be emailed a certificate of completion from us which is recognized and approved by Texas DPS-RSD.


This is the introductory class that everyone must take if they want to work security in Texas:


  • DPS-RSD Regulations/Actions
  • Role of Security Officers
  • Police Interaction
  • Security Conflict Resolution
  • Use of Force
  • Detainment Vs Arrest
  • Radio Procedures
  • Report Writing
  • Observations
  • Response to Emergencies
  • Applicable Texas Penal Code Studies
  • State Exam
