Come experience what sets us apart from the rest.

TCTA prides itself on not being a “Certificate Mill” or “check the box” class; nor do our instructors just “teach the test.” TCTA takes your training, time, education, and money paid very seriously as we know that your life & liability may depend on the training that you receive. Our classes are designed to exceed the state’s standards; many security providers send their officers here to be taught correctly, professionally, and thoroughly. While other schools provide you with just enough information to pass the written test, you will leave here with as much information that most security supervisors and managers know.

“I have no shortage of good things to say about Glen or any of the training that he or his company offer. All of the relevant information is delivered concisely, professionally, and most importantly, in a relatable manner. His passion for security as an industry is very apparent, and that is reflected in the quality of training that he provides. Glen was also kind enough to talk to me personally after class on multiple occasions and answer any question I asked him. I highly recommend any security professional looking for education in security in Texas to come to TCTA.” -Zeke Reyes
“I would say to anyone who wants to be educated properly and taught everything they really need to know not what companies just want to feed them; I would highly recommend coming here. Everything that the instructor Glen taught me was extremely informative and I actually learned a lot. So, if you are really wanting to take your career as a security guard seriously you need to come here for your classes.  Thank you guys for everything you did for me.”-David Werth

In addition to meeting and exceeding the State’s guidelines on State required “core classes,” TCTA also runs additional program courses that have some of the highest standards and outstanding logistical support found in the industry for Security or Private Instructors, which is then passed down to our students.
