Note: Non-Commissioned can take the course, the Private Security Board has approved training on the use of a chemical dispensing device as a supplement to the Level III training curricula. The defensive tactics and use of force components of the Level III training course provide the background training necessary to ensure the officer’s use of the device is safe, appropriate, and authorized. The Pepper Spray Training is therefore approved only for those who have successfully completed the Level III training.
