** COURSE POLICIES **
COURSE GOAL: Our Illinois CCW classes include proven NRA training material presented by certified NRA instructors. The NRA basic pistol class is recognized nationwide and satisfies the Illinois state requirement for firearm and ammunition knowledge and safety. After this class, even the most inexperienced shooters will have a grasp of the fundamentals.
OVERVIEW: The Illinois specific portion of the class is presented only by Illinois approved instructors. The course will give participants a solid grasp of current laws governing firearms in Illinois. You will learn where concealed carry is prohibited, proper interaction with law enforcement, Illinois use of force statutes, and proper concealment. This course also covers all current FOID laws and laws related to firearm ownership and transportation. Also included is live fire qualification in our onsite range. In order to pass the live fire qualification, you must hit the scoring portion of a B27 target with 70% of 30 rounds from 5 yards, 7 yards, and 10 yards respectively. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate that must accompany their application. 16 hour students will also receive their NRA Basic Pistol Certification; which satisfies the requirements for Florida CCW permits and Arizona CCW permits.
