Texas Security Officer Training

S.E.A.L. Security Academy is approved and fully licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety-Regulatory Services Division Private Security Bureau (PSB). Our core classes meet and exceed state requirements for the instruction and licensing of security professionals in the state of Texas. Our course certificates are accepted by the state of Texas, and with every licensed private security agency in the state.


S.E.A.L. Security Academy offers Texas PSB Level II and Level III Security Officer classes, which teach the required basics for State certification. All S.E.A.L. Security Academy instructors have real-world security and law enforcement experience. Our instructors are not just “book-smart,” they are “street-smart” with their own personal experiences. Our instructors combine actual field experience with the lesson plans in order to provide students with a better understanding of the training.

The TX PSB Level II course is a 6 hour course that is mandatory for everyone who wants a career in private security in Texas. Students who complete this course will be provided with the basic certification (to be submitted and approved by the State) to be able to work legally as an unarmed security officer in the State of Texas.

The TX PSB Level III course is required for all commissioned (armed) security officers and personal protection officers in the state of Texas. The course is completed over 4 days (10 hours each day) and is designed to certify the officer with the requirements and standards put forth by the Texas PSB. Officers are trained in basic security topics, laws and firearms (range fees included) in this all inclusive course relating to his or her daily assignments and responsibilities. The course covers:

  • General Training Issues
  • Relevant Texas Statutes
  • Field Note Taking and Report Writing
  • Response to Emergency Situations
  • Public Perception of Security Officers
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Radio Procedures
    • Firearms Training & Range Qualification
  • Disarming your Attacker
  • Kneed strikes and Kicks
  • Controlling your Attacker
  • Finishing Moves

Our Level III courses include course materials (yours to keep), range fees and shotgun qualification (these cost extra at most other schools). The only additional cost is handgun ammunition. S.E.A.L. will supply the shotgun and shotgun ammunition. Loaner handguns are available if needed. However, we highly recommend you use your own handgun (we suggest at least a .38 Caliber revolver or at least a 9 MM semiautomatic) so you will train in class with your own duty weapon. Always train with the weapon you will be using whenever possible.
