Our program provides students the training needed to mitigate an Active Shooter situation. Training is conducted at our private range outside of Marble Falls, Texas. Classes are held for those who will be carrying on a safety & security team. If you are a sheep dog and serve on a church safety & security team you need this class. This class is also appropriate for school/church combo campuses.
Those who desire to take this class must have their Texas LTC and must be knowledgeable about operating handguns. This is an advanced program for shooters with experience handling handguns. We do offer a basic handgun class for those who are not experienced.
Those who successfully complete this program will be Texas DPS certified in the school safety program.
Students must pass a pre-qualification proficiency demonstration and score at least 225 out of 250. This will be conducted the first day of training. This is a higher requirement than the LTC license. Students must also score 90% on a written test. Taking this class does not certify you to teach the DPS program.

The Guardian program encompasses the most important solutions needed to combat today's active shooter threat. The training provides participants the confidence needed in order to protect and defend church members in the event of an active shooter attack.
We encourage churches to assess their current safety & security procedures through our safety & security audit. The audit will help schools see where they need to improve and/or if their standards are up to the current methods and practices. A written report is provided with findings and suggestions for improvement.
What Makes Our Active Shooter Training Program Outstanding We provide participants with strategies for empowering staff to eliminate feelings of helplessness in the face of violent intruders. Our team of current licensed DPS firearms instructors, prior law enforcement officers, retired military personnel, and emergency management experts apply their knowledge to our training programs.
Active Shooter Training Conducted by Police Departments You may hear active shooter training being conducted by police departments in the news. This gives first responders the chance to practice their response skills; and familiarizes first responders with the layout of the school’s campus. However, this training primarily benefits the response efforts of trained first responders and offers limited benefits to the church safety & security team who are more likely to respond to an incident first.
