Our two DPSST Certified Instructor’s have 60 years of combined law enforcement and security experience in the State of Oregon.

Security Pros University™ offers DPSST Unarmed Certification classes every month in Bend through our experienced DPSST Certified Instructors.

I.  The initial certification class cost is $200, which INCLUDES: fingerprinting, application forms and all class materials. This is the most complete DPSST certification package in this region, providing everything you need to apply for certification. This is a 14-hour course that we complete over two days.

II.  The recertification class cost is $100. This is a 4-hour course.  Recertification can be done within 180 days of expiration.

•  You will be responsible for all application fees required by DPSST (currently $124.25 for an initial two-year certification and $78 for a two-year recertification).

•  You are responsible for submitting your completed paperwork with the appropriate fees to DPSST in Salem within 180 days from our class date, to complete the application process.  Failure to do so, will cause your training to become invalid and you will have to take the training again at your own expense.

If you fail the exam, we will offer you one chance to repeat the deficient section of the curriculum and retake the exam  again at no additional cost. After that, you must re-take (at the instructor’s option) the entire course at your expense.  Our instructor’s reserve the right to terminate an applicants training, if the applicant is unsafe, unfit to proceed, or shows abnormal behavior.
