For those of you in upcoming School Safety Instructor classes, when did you apply? I saw somewhere that 12-18 months was not unheard of... yikes!

I just came back from the Oct. 29-30 class. Most people registered for the class around March 2017. The class has lots of great information!

The director of training told us that they are running 16-20 months wait. Also, there is little demand for the class from school staff (future students) due to nearly all major school districts have not approved the SSO (School Safety Officer) program, thus there is little demand for the instructors to teach the class.

How long is it taking to get the certificate once you've done the class? I'm closing in on 3 weeks. Yep, I'm that impatient.

Only took 9 days from Austin to Houston and arrived a little crumpled, but all is well.

Anybody hear anything about what hoops we'll have to jump through for renewal in the later portion of 2019? I hoping a separate trip to the Austin area isn't required if we also have to go up this time for LTC Instructor renewal.

And the answer, I'm told, is apparently nothing. That particular topic didn't come up during my two days up there. Figured there'd be the occasional program update to review.

I signed up this January and was told I'm 140 on the list with 5 more classes "tentatively" scheduled for 2018, max of 12 per class.
Assuming 6 classes a year, 12 students per class = 72 students per year, and I'm #140. So maybe I get in around December of 2019, which would be almost two years.
Just received an invitation to the Jan 10-11, 2019 class, so they are about 11 months ahead of where I expected them to be. Overall, it would be a year since I signed up.
