Welcome to the National Protective Services Institute Training School.


 NPSI is open.


NPSI is reducing class size to create space for distancing.

Classes are subject to canceling without a minimum number of registrations, and close when max class registrations are received. If you wait to long to register, you may loose a seat, or be the reason a class does not make. If a class does not make, we transfer you to the next scheduled class.

Some course objectives require personal contact with one another. No person is ever intentionally PUT at risk by anyone at NPSI.

If a student does not feel safe in performing a task, that student may bow out and receive an INCOMPLETE for that objective. Once that objective is met, they graduate.

Let me be very clear. Course objectives are mandated by the course governing body. All course objectives shall be met to graduate. Not all objectives can be met maintaining a six foot distance from one another. It is the student’s responsibility to weigh and mitigate risk with the need to certify/qualify.



Based in San Antonio, Texas, NPSI is the only area full-time firearm safety and shooting school, with a host of available classroom and online courses. NPSI has several NRA Training Counselors for NRA Firearms Instructor certifications and is a licensed Texas Private Security Program Academy for credentialing to support the protective services community. NPSI's Instructors are not only National Rifle Association (NRA) certified, but many hold multiple certifications and are recognized subject matter experts.

You must be prepared to protect yourself and your family, which is why so many Texas and non-Texas residents turn to NPSI for Personal Protection and Firearm Safety classes, such as Texas License to Carry Handgun (LTC). NPSI teaches every subject included in Defensive Handgun Academys around the country. Getting your LTC in San Antonio has never been easier and we have a variety of schedules to fit your needs.

Beyond San Antonio LTC training, the NPSI instructional staff offers numerous classes for law enforcement personnel, private security personnel, and citizens interested in increasing their personal safety and defense abilities.  Classes include such topics as advanced concealed carry training, first aid/CPR training, self-defense/assault prevention, and active killer/active shooter response.  NPSI is recognized as one of the world's premier bodyguard training schools; not only can we train you to protect yourself, but we train professionals to protect others.  At NPSI, not only can we teach you the basics, but we can transition to the advanced personal defense classes you may require.  There are many other schools teaching the basics...but why stop there?  Train like your life depends on it!
