This 15 to 20 hour course is held over 2 days and is designed to train school staff on how to defend our children in the event of an ACTIVE SHOOTER. Developed by the Texas Department of Public Safety, this course uses lecture, discussion, demonstration, and several practical exercises to teach the Avoid, Deny, Defend methodology created by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.
The four objectives of this course are:
- The protection of students
- Tactics for denying an intruder entry into a classroom or school facility
- Methods to increase an LTC holder's accuracy with a handgun under duress
- Interaction of LTC holders with First Responders
This course includes shooting activities consisting of 300 rounds of ammunition.
Course Prerequisites include:
- Possess a valid Texas LTC
- Written pre-test, scoring 90% or higher
(over laws presented in the LTC course, before training on Day 1)
- Shooting pre-qualification, scoring 90% or higher
(same course of fire as the LTC qualification, before training on Day 1)
Upon completion of this course, the student will be issued a certificate. The certificate is simply proof that the student has successfully completed these stringent course requirements. This course alone DOES NOT permit a current Texas LTC holder to carry a firearm onto school grounds, the ISD staff member must have written permission from the ISD or school authority.
*Indivdual and group rates available.
