Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

They run the students through the LTC proficiency course too. If they can't shoot 90%, they can't continue the training.

Re: LTC-9

My student brought it back to me. DPS said I have to use the LTC101. The shooting proficiency instructor has to sign it twice, once attesting to a 1 to 2 hour gun safety instructions and once to certify the student successfully showed proficiency.

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

Did you have to shoot revolver too on the LTC test reshoot? I'm not sure what you are asking. You only need one gun for the School Safety training. If you are renewing your intructor's LTC training certificate, yes, you have to show proficiency with both. I know, We (and teachers taking the SS class...

Re: On line classes have started

I had an online student come get his shooting proficiency with me. He had a copy of the LTC101 from the online provider. I should have filled it out. I elected to fill out the proficiency part of the LTC100 and provide that to him I have done that several times in the past when students have taken t...

Re: On line classes have started

"It's likely that some of the actual instructors are not actually gun guys at all, but work for a company whose owner took the necessary courses to be authorized to sign off on the forms. I would bet that the online process was started by a member of the legislature who was taken to an expensive gol...

Re: LTC-9

The LTC101 is for online providers. I am not an online provider. Downloading it requires a password (I did not try the instructor password). In the past, I've submitted LTC100's with just the proficiency when another instructor did the classroom. Never had a problem. If the student had the original ...

Re: Time period for LTC 100

Actually, (as posted on the OCT facebook site), DPS has rescinded that change. the LTC100 is still good for 2 years.
I had not heard that/seen it reported anywhere else so I called DPS and they confirmed. The LTC100 is good for 2 years.

Re: LTC-9

I just had my first student show up for proficiency after an online course. He had the online equivalent of the LTC100. I could have filled out the bottom, just like I have down for other students when some other instructor taught the class. I chose to create my own LTC100, just left the top half bl...

Re: On line classes have started

I reviewed one of the online courses. First there are no controls. Ever take an online Defensive driving course? Every once in awhile, it asks you personal questions - birthdate, d/l number, etc. If you don't answer correctly and quickly, you get kicked off, have to call to get restarted. This cours...

Re: Time period for LTC 100

Actually, RossA, I assumed the 1 year statute had lapsed. You posted this on 4/25 and reported she took the class last April. That would only give her possibly a few days to find an instructor and show proficiency and get it all submitted.

Re: Time period for LTC 100

My understanding is classes taught after the effective date (1/18/18??) are subject to the 1 year cutoff. Classes taught prior to that date still enjoy a 2 year validity.

5 year waiting period after a Class B misdemeanor

The law is clear, you have to wait 5 years from the date of conviction. DPS has stressed that it is NOT the date of the offense. I have been told that DPS is interpreting this to mean 5 years from the end of probation. Is that correct? Worth fighting with DPS over?

Re: Time period for LTC 100

In January of this year, DPS dropped it from 2 years to 1 year. Since the original class was conducted prior to this change, In my opinion, it would still be good.

Re: Range Rental - North Fort Worth ??

I don't think the issue is 'controlling everyone on their range'. After all, they will still have their own RSO's overseeing everything. Why wouldn't it be safer to have the LTC instructor also watching the student. To me this is just a justification. Granted, some of our students are new and inexpe...
