The State of Texas requires that all LTC instructors be certified by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). To become certified, you must meet the following requirements:
- Be at least 21 years old.
- Be a resident of Texas.
- Be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
- Have a clean criminal record.
- Pass a background check.
- Complete a DPS-approved LTC instructor course.
- Pass a written exam and a proficiency demonstration.
The LTC instructor course, taught by DPS in Florence, Texas is a three-day course that covers the following topics:
- Texas law regarding the carrying of handguns.
- Firearms safety.
- Texas Penal Code.
- Legal issues related to self-defense.
- Shooting proficiency demonstration.
After you complete the course, you will be required to pass a written exam and the proficiency demonstration. The written exam will cover the material that was taught in the course. The proficiency demonstration will require you to demonstrate your ability to safely and effectively use a handgun.
Once you have passed the written exam and the proficiency demonstration, you will be issued a Texas LTC instructor certificate. This certificate will allow you to teach LTC classes in the State of Texas. There’s one catch, “You MUST be an Instructor to attend this DPS Course.
