In accordance with the State of Texas Private Security Bureau, requirements for Level IV PPO training is a total of 15 hours and a written exam.  The 15 hours consists of 4 hours of OC pepper spray, 4 hours of Defensive Tactics and 6 hours of lecture all followed by a 50 question exam.  This quite frankly is just enough to get you, your team or your principal hurt!

 

At SPSTI, we have developed a 50 hour Basic Protective Officers Course that incorporates the above minimum state requirement and then continues on with real life practical training.  During our BPOC, you will learn about individual and multiple PPO details in a reality based environment.  The additional 35 hours of the BPOC includes:

 

  • Walking formations

  • Rings of Protection

  • PPCT

  • Interactions with Client, Public, Media and Law Enforcement

  • Motorcade operations

  • Overt / Covert Surveillance

  • Carrying of a Concealed Firearm

  • Practical Concealed Firearms Course

  • Intermediate Combat Pistol Course

  • and much more

Students who are not CURRENTLY certified in OC pepper spray must be exposed to OC during the course in order to receive certification.  Students must not only be able to successfully pass the state exam, but must also complete a 6 - 8 hour scenario based final exam in the population of San Antonio or surrounding areas as a part of a mock Protective Detail.
