Online Meeting Class

#1

Post by Texanaggie » Tue Mar 24, 2020 10:40 am

Gents and Ladies,

I have several people that want to take the LTC class, due to the current state we are in. I would like to limit the exposure to myself and also the students. I was thinking would DPS count me using a online meeting like Webex as online. I was thinking i would do the classroom portion on webex, have them meet at a range do the written test in person and then the shooting portion...

I am just throwing it out there and wondering if anyone else thought of the same idea.

Thanks

I called the RSD to ask if they had considered “relaxing” the rule against using Skype, etc. for LTC classes (not self-paces online learning, but real-time conference call type classes).

The answer is no - all classes must be face-to-face, unfortunately.

I assume this is because it would take a change in the law, rather than an administrative change.

Thanks i assumed so, worth a ask...

funny it would be a face to face on cam, i understand the id and test part that would be in person. DPS needs to get into 2020 , unless the online training groups are keeping DPS from relaxing the rule.

Preaching to the choir. It would make tons of sense to allow Webex, Skype, etc for the classroom discussion... requiring the written test to be done in person, like the shooting proficiency.
