IIRC, from looking at some TSA requirements pages for info on traveling with firearms, and from speaking to LEO friends, there's a training course of some sort that allows LEOs to carry on commercial flights without being an Air Marshall.
Anybody know more about it?

If that really did happen, I would never step foot on an airplane. The last thing that I would want is some happy go lucky wandabe air marshal CCW holder blasting everyone but the BG. You have a small area to work with plus people running around....

Not every problem on a plane is one in which a pistol solution is the answer. Same as on the streets.

People ask me why I hate flying, this would just be another reason. Pass me a Bloody Mary also SteveW and a Screw Driver while were at it.

It will never happen and it's an awful idea.
If a CCP holder wants to carry on the plane they should sign up to be an Air Marshall and get the appropriate training. It would be so easy for a terrorist to get a CCP. Many of them do not have criminal records, so they would pass the background checks with flying colors. Then we've got terrorists with guns on planes. Absolutely not!
Further, it is extremely dangerous for there to be any guns on any planes Air Marshall or no. It only takes one wayward shot to bring the entire plane down. A CCP holder carrying on a plane would require much much more training than any of us do on our own.
