This has left the security industry in real need of professional schools that can produce quality, well-trained, responsible guards. Answering the call has been Texas Certified Training Academy, an academy well known and respected for training high-level security professionals and bodyguards.

“There’s more of a need than ever and we understand that there’s a great responsibility in making sure everyone who graduates from our academy is well trained and prepared. It’s an all-around win/win for us, for our students and, most of all, for the companies they work for and the people or property they protect.”

According to the company, they are very proud to offer a number of different courses including: Non-Commission; Commission; Bodyguard; CHL; C.E.W.; Handcuffing; Pepper Spray; Baton Training; First Aid / CPR; and Advanced Weapons. New courses are often added and updated as required.

In Texas, the law is very strict in that all people performing a security role – uniformed or not – even if called a bouncer or other name, must have completed at least a non-commission security course, such as the one taught at Texas Certified Training Academy. It’s an arrestable offense to perform those job functions without the license.

Former students have praised their experience having taken courses at the academy.

Texas Certified Training Academy ReviewsJohn M., from Texas, recently said, “When I came home from the army I knew I wanted to be a security guard, but one who worked for quality companies. My friend suggested I come to Texas Certified Training Academy to get certified, and I’m glad I did.

I’ve turned my past experience and certificates into very good jobs and my career just keeps getting better and better. Five stars and highly recommended. This is the place to go to for someone seriously considering a job in security in Texas, without any doubt at all.”

Chris C. from Texas, recently said, “I’m a veteran, and having going to college briefly, I realized it wasn’t for me. One of my friends who was also in the Army had gone to TCTA and had a great paying job in security. I followed his lead, took the training, and it was really a great decision. I started off working at a job that was very good and now a year later I’m working at one that I really love. It’s nice to know also, my experience from the military is being used to help keep Americans safe here. I recommend TCTA highly to anyone considering security work.”
