Legislated under the 134th General Assembly, House Bill 99 permits a school district board or governing body to elect to arm specific staff members as well as the mandated training requirements for those individuals. [O.R.C. 2923.122, 5502.703]
The same legislation created the Ohio Mobile Training Team (OMTT), within the Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) who must create and provide required initial and annual requalification training for armed school staff.
The OMTTs model curriculum is called, Armed School Staff Essential Training (ASSET). The ASSET program is comprised of two core training programs, the initial, 24-hour certification program and the annual, 8-hour requalification program.
