    Okay, I have gone to Texas DPS CHL web site applied for CHL Instructor. I called them and they told me I should reapply in January of 2010. They told me that the class was already over for the year and I need to reapply. What class are they talking about and what is the process of this? I have been to a TCLEOSE firearms instructor course so what else do I need.

    It's not like getting a CHL, the classes aren't offered continually.

    There is a thread from a week or 2 ago from someone that just went to one and some folks that are going this month also posted.

    Typically DPS holds intructor certification once a year, they usally run two classes. One is a 28 hour class that is made up almost eclusivley of military and LEO, the other is a 36 hour class for average joe. I believe DPS held three classes this year, the first was the 28 hour, started on Jube 1, one I believe was last week and the last starts next week. You basically need to keep an eye on the DPS website and watch for the announcement. No other training or certification will allow you to condunct CHL classes in Texas....

    Unfortunately this time next year will be the first chance you'll get to take the class. They have it once a year.

    You will qualify for the 28 hour course if you have NRA instructor certification
