Agent-created safety course includes concealed-carry option

  • The first real estate agent safety course sanctioned by the Texas Real Estate Commission has attracted 75 agents after a month.
  • Agents are learning about key times when they might be at risk and are being given the opportunity to apply for their concealed carry handgun license.

Some agents download apps to their phones to keep them safe while on the job; others might take a self-defense class. And in Texas, some agents can now apply for a concealed-carry firearm license through a Texas Real Estate Commission-sanctioned course.
