1. GENERAL INFORMATION
Use of learning management system (LMS) through American Eagle Protective Services Corporation (“AEPS”) website or emails does not create a student or client relationship. A user or visitor is not considered a “customer, client or student” until coursework has begun and payment has been received in full
AEPS does not promise or guarantee that student will pass any class and/or that the State of Texas will approve every license application submitted just because payment for a course has been received
AEPS does not promise, suggest or advertise in any way that by taking any of our classes that employment will result from successful completion of any class. AEPS is not a placement agency.
AEPS reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time, which also includes professional conflicts of interest. AEPS will dismiss any student who is considered a safety or health risk to staff or students.
Student must satisfy all statutory requirements prior to attend any class at AEPS. Student must also disclose their Social Security Number (SSN) on the state forms (required by the state) in order to get their certificate /license.
Due to Federal Law: Ex-felons cannot use or possess firearms at any time, which prevents their attendance to any class containing firearm training such as: CHL, Level 3 Commission, Level 4 PPO, Advanced Weapons, etc. AEPS will also not knowingly train anyone who is using this training, information, and techniques for unlawful purposes.
The state of Texas only provides an English version to all state security and licensing exams; with that said, in order to comprehend and pass each course, all students must be able to read, write, and speak English. AEPS will not and cannot help any Student through the test, teach the test to the Student, or provide answers to Students at any time, as each Student must fully understand the fundamentals of all courses on their own.
Student acknowledges that in exchange for access to the information available on the website/LMS, and the ability to participate in the services offered on the website/LMS, Student is bound by this agreement.

AEPS will not provide a refund, credit, or rain check if Student fails a test, unable to perform the course tasks, is dismissed from a course for any reason, and unable to complete the course for any reason. While many sign up / pay then change their mind, it is sold regardless if Student completes the course or not. Again all fees are Non-refundable and Non-transferable.
All payments must be received prior to receiving any instruction. No personal checks are accepted at any time. AEPS accepts all major credit cards and debit cards including PayPal and specifically listed approved mobile payment system listed in this agreement. Once Student enrolls online, they will receive an invoice along with further course information and directions. If after paying Student does not receive any confirmation back, Student should contact AEPS.
Students that have their company paying for their training that do not provide a payment prior to enrollment, (and we have an agreement to bill your company), company will be mailed your training certificates once AEPS receives payment due in full for the training provided. All students will be responsible for their course fee if their company fails to pay in a timely manner. Companies that request to be billed, must set this up prior to the day of class and notify AEPS prior.
AEPS does not offer discounts or price reductions on course materials even if Student has materials required by the course.
