Hello everyone. My name is Randy Foster and I am a native Houstonian.
Some of my accomplishments, qualifications and experiences as a law enforcement officer and as a certified Texas Department of Public Safety Concealed Handgun Instructor for the State of Texas are:
As a firearm instructor for the Police Department, I continued to attend training courses and conferences pertaining to the use of handguns, shotguns and rifles. I have completed many certified training courses which have not only enhanced my education but also contributed to my vast experiences.
For the past twenty-four years and presently, I am working as a firearm instructor for the Police Department.
Due to my unique training and certifications in the use of firearms, I was selected to join the Tactical Team in a full-time capacity. The Tactical Team position has given me the opportunity to enhance my knowledge of how to handle various types of handguns, shotguns and rifles.
In 1995, I was selected by the Texas Department of Public Safety Concealed Handgun Unit to attend their instructor’s program. After successfully completing a rigorous training program, I became a Certified Concealed Handgun Instructor for the State of Texas. By following the guidelines set forth by DPS Concealed Handgun Unit, I am certified to teach classes that allow citizens to obtain a License To Carry Handgun License. DPS License To Carry Handgun Unit requires their instructors to be recertified every two years.
My License To Carry Certification is current and I have been teaching License To Carry classes continuously in the Houston Harris County area.
As an experienced Police Officer, Field Training Officer and a licensed License To Carry Instructor, the benefits are immeasurable as far as saving lives through the extensive training that is achieved through continuing firearm instructor’s training, enhanced decision making skills and marksmanship.
