This course, designed by the Texas Department of Public Safety is a course to train local school officials, teachers, and employees on how to respond to an active shooter. Only those that are permitted to carry a firearm in school; also benefit those officials, teachers, and employees who are concerned citizens that do not carry while at school. Everybody can learn how to respond to an active shooter or high alert situation — encouraging all to use items and resources available to them at their local school.
