State of Florida Concealed Weapon Class

I’ve been conducting Florida CCW classes since 2003 with a 100% approval rate.

If you too, would like to exercise your right to be able to defend yourself, and I feel everyone should, I can get you started!

The CCW course lasts 2 hours + , depending on size. I provide the firearm & ammunition, documentation and the State of Florida CCW application package.

Each and every course is taught by myself, in person, face to face. Range fees may apply and are not included in the price of the class.


The package includes:

  • State of Florida Concealed Weapon / Firearm License Application
  • Finger print card
  • Application Instructions  for Concealed Weapon or Firearm License and Chapter 790 Florida Statutes
  • Return Envelope for application

Once you have completed the course, you will be given a Training Certificate to prove to the State that you have taken and passed the required course.

Course’s will be held at least once a month (check my calendar) or can be scheduled for groups/private classes.

Private classes and group classes at your location/business are also possible in Miami-Dade/Broward counties area.

Book a class for your group of at least 4 students and l’ll present the material in the comfort and convenience of your home or office. We’ll bring in the teaching materials, etc. And of course we’ll make provisions for the live fire portion to be done elsewhere.

Email for rates and to schedule!
