Johnny was invited to the pilot training and certification class held in August of 2015 by Texas Department of Public Safety. There were ONLY 6 total LTC instructors in this pilot class. Their purpose was more than to just get certified to offer to schools and teachers, but also to critique the class and offer feed back and ideas on ways to improve the curriculum when DPS officially launches the program. School Safety Officer Certification oficially launched in late December 2016. We are proud to be able to offer this to schools to help better protect our children. To date Big Iron instructors have LTC/CHL certified over 3000 teachers & staff from all over Texas since the horrible tragedy at Sandy Hook.
