Concealed Carry Course

Concealed weapon or firearm license 

The State of Florida requires that anyone applying for a concealed weapon/firearm license first complete a firearm safety training course adminstered by a legally qualified individual such as a NRA certified instructor.


All IFT instructors are NRA certified and our concealed carry course goes well beyond meeting all Florida requirements for firearm safety training as required by Florida statute.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be awarded with a certificate for Firearms Safety Training signed by a NRA instructor. You will also receive a complete state of Florida CWL application packet including a fingerprint card. We will assist you in filling out in your application.

Course content:
  • mechanics of revolvers
  • mechanics of semi-automatics
  • possible ammunition malfunctions
  • possible firearm malfunctions
  • safe handling and storage
  • firearm maintenance 
  • shooting fundamentals
  • Florida reciprocity
  • Florida statutes 790. and 776.

Course time is approximately two and a half (2.5) hours.
