At the end of students will take a closed book test.

Range day which starts out with a review of the safety rules as well as mindset. We then start covering the fundamentals of marksmanship, drawing and reloading, weapons malfunctions. Instructors then proceed with the DPSST weapon handling assessment, upon successful completion of the assessment students will then begin the live fire exercise which concludes with the state qualification.

Students need to remember that they need to take the DPSST Unarmed Security Course prior to submitting an application with the state to become an armed security professional.

If the student is upgrading from the unarmed to the armed rating we will provide a PS 23 upgrade form. We will also provide a PS 6 training form which can be used to obtain an Oregon Concealed Handgun License.

We also have the Arizona Concealed Handgun License packets as well as the Florida Concealed Handgun License Packets available should you decide to upgrade your concealed handgun License.
