Texas LTC Instructor

For a person to become a Texas LTC instructor you must take a 3 day LTC instructor course at the DPS training center in Florence, TX (near Austin). It’s actually two days in the classroom and about half a day at the range. The LTC instructor course is VERY EASY and on a basic level including the shooting portion.

One BIG catch, Not just anyone can take the Texas LTC instructor course. State law requires you to already have a “instructor certification” to be qualified to take the Texas LTC instructor course.

To meet the prerequisite requirement you must have ONE of the following certifications:

  •  TCOLE ( law enforcement) certified handgun instructor
  • Handgun instructor certified under Texas chapter 1702 (private security)
  •  Certified by the NRA as a basic pistol instructor

That’s where we come in. The easiest way to get the required instructor certification is to take our NRA instructor certification course. That’s right, after taking our NRA course you will be a nationally certified NRA firearms instructor and qualify to become a Texas LTC instructor. Texas law requires the NRA instructor certification to become a Texas LTC instructor.

This NRA certification is accepted by the Texas Department of Public safety as meeting the prerequisite requirement to become a Texas license to carry instructor. It’s all you will need to get into the DPS Texas license to carry instructor course. Texas law specifically list the NRA instructor certification as the gold standard in Texas.
