Astro Security ADVANCED SECURITY OFFICER TRAINING

An investigation by the Associated Press (AP) revealed that most Security Officers remain poorly paid and insufficiently trained for their work. Even those trusted with the security of sites that the federal government has identified as terrorist targets have little training.
 
The training standards are left up to security organizations, particularly those in the contract guard business, would likely not adopt standards because they represent increased costs, and to be competitive in that business, the bottom-line rules. Therefore it is up to the Security Officer to get the training that is required to get the better paying jobs.

Concealed handgun certification (back to top)

The State of Texas passed laws that allow us to carry concealed handguns for self-protection. Obtaining a permit to carry concealed in the State of Texas requires a 10 hour Concealed Handgun License Certification Course which is outlined by the State Department of Public Safety and covers the use of force, gun safety, gun storage, dispute resolution and Texas laws regarding use of force as a defense and licensing requirements.

You can start your application for a concealed handgun license online at https://www.texasonline.state.tx.us/txapp/txdps/chl/. We suggest that you come to class so you understand what you are stating on the application. However, you can go online and complete the application and then come to class. Whichever you decide to do, you will have to apply online to get a number so you can set up your appointment for fingerprints with L1 solutions. As of March 1, 2011, DPS will no longer accept rolled fingerprints. They must be completed by L1 Solutions and you must make an appointment with them giving them a number assigned by DPS so it will tie into your application.
