What is Oleoresin Capsicum?     

Pepper Spray Training Class Austin

Commonly called O.C. or “Pepper Spray,” Oleoresin Capsicum is a convenient aerosol spray that is used as a non-lethal protection device. When used before hands-on defense in the escalation of force, there is less risk of injuries to all parties, and in most cases, the proper use results in ending the attack or resistance without having to go to the next level of force.

OFFICIAL COURSE:    Only $30.00!!

Pepper Spray Training for Guards


The effects of O.C. temporarily affects the skin, face, eyes, and respiratory system of the attacker for a short period of time.

O.C. is reliable and allows the opportunity to escape, end an attack, or gain compliance as a non-lethal use of force tool for Officers. O.C. (once used), can last from 10-30 minutes on the average person but washes off with cold water.

Requirements for Pepper Spray Training Class


You do not have to be sprayed with OC as a condition to complete this class

Our program is designed for security professionals who deal with conflict or potential violence. We understand that anyone can hold a bottle, press a button, and spray; however, it is the civil and criminal liability we stress and try protect you against through a well-run course.

Texas DPS-RSD has made some admin changes with OC and going full circle about it being authorized or not. They first included it in the Lv4 PPO class since 1999 (and authorized it), then updated that course last year and removed it after 18 years -then leading others to believe it was then illegal to carry it (wrong). DPS-RSD never certified you in OC in the first place (never gave a certificate or pocket card for it), all training schools gave their own version, and pocket cards. Now in October 2018 they now came back out with an OC course guideline and authorized it again as part of the Lv-3 class (too funny). To be honest, OC was never illegal according to the Texas Penal Code IF you read each part of it. DPS-RSD still claims in that code that “Security Officer” means only “Commission” however TPC notes Security Officer is both “Non-Commission and Commission” that is authorized to carry OC- so come here and we will set you straight and peel back all the wrong information, and get you going in the right direction. Btw we were the first to send DPS-RSD correspondence regarding their wrongful removal of OC last year, and also pointed out that they could not limit or control instructors or schools teaching that class or any non-Lv-2, Lv-3 , Lv4 class. Any school can teach for example Taser, Scuba, Driving, Mountain climbing etc., and that is outside of the control of DPS-RSD. The question was: Was it illegal for the officer to carry OC after being taught (wherever and by whomever) when DPS took it out of the Lv-4 class? The answer was always “no” and we have the proof we cover in class- to include our email response from DPS-RSD.  Come here for a class taught by professionals that know what they are talking about.
