(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The law enforcement academy at Missouri Western State University is offering a gun training course for local educators.

After completing the course, educators could become certified school protection officers.

The Criminal Justice Department says the training is geared toward high-stress situations that way anyone who takes the class will be prepared to handle emergency situations including school shootings.

The course is about 120 hours long and is open to school and staff members.

Members of the academy contacted local schools a few years ago about offering the course to teachers, however, no one was interested at the time.

Anyone wanting to take the class may contact the law enforcement academy at Missouri Western.
