The official, modular-format, NRA CCW Student Course is scheduled and configured by us for BOTH students with substantial prior handgun experience (certificate issued on the same date) as well as those who are new to handguns in particular and firearms in general.
To attend the initial, classroom-only version of this course (Day-1 only) and receive a certificate on the same date, students will be asked to provide a detailed outline of their prior handgun experience since the classroom-only version of this course will not include a range session. However, we require a subsequent live-fire range session for all students who do not have prior handgun experience that is sufficient and subject to review and approval by our instructors(s).
While Colorado does not require a live-fire range session for concealed handgun permit applications, WE REQUIRE it for all students without substantial prior handgun experience. The NRA CCW Student course is modular by design and can be delivered in various configurations including half-day, full-day and in up to a two-day format. We offer multiple configurations of this excellent NRA CCW Student Course!
Students WITHOUT sufficient prior handgun shooting experience may still attend this first, classroom-only instance of the course and then attend a subsequent, additional classroom and range session (Day-2) to be scheduled thereby “starting the process” towards obtaining a concealed handgun permit through a real, quality-focused, firearms training program instead of a “coffee & donuts” type experience found with some other training providers that does not adequately prepare you to carry a concealed handgun and have the capacity to delivery deadly force in defense of yourself or another which is a HUGE responsibility with the associated need for adequate training.
Do it right and get real firearms training!
For that subsequent full day of firearms training on Day-2, students who complete this first classroom session will pay a reduced amount of additional tuition which will cover both the subsequent classroom and live-fire range sessions. There will be some overlap in the material presented between the two dates and classroom sessions which is intentional and designed to support students who are truly brand new to handguns in particular and firearms in general. Think of it as qualify firearms training is obviously good and more of it is obviously better! Their course certificate will then be issued when they complete the subsequent classroom and live-fire range sessions on a future date at which time they may then apply for a concealed handgun permit.
Students WITH substantial prior handgun experience may also this Day-1 program AND then attend the subsequent classroom and / or live-fire range session (Day-2) at the same reduced amount of additional tuition which supports couples and friends completing the training on both dates to enhance the value received.
These special, reduced tuition amounts for these courses are:
- $129 / person for this first, classroom only instance of the excellent, official NRA CCW Student Course which includes two (2) printed NRA course books: NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting and NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside the Home. Our landed, “hard-cost” for these two books approaches $50 / student and the books are of significant value. The regular tuition for this first, classroom-only course is $179 / person and it is on sale now for only $129 / person!
- $99 / person to attend the subsequent full day of training which includes both classroom and live-fire range sessions as well as the range fees / student. This full day of firearms training is regularly priced at $179 / person but discounted here to $99 for those that complete this first classroom-only instance. That comes to the equivalent of two days of firearms training for only $228 / person instead of up to $358 / person if purchased separately.
In summary, our scheduling and delivery of the modular NRA CCW Student Course provides students with more options to select the training that is most beneficial to fit their individual backgrounds and handgun experience while at the same time enabling couples and friends to train together to receive real, quality-based, firearms training enabling them to apply for a concealed handgun permit.
Students may bring a small, personal cooler with lunch and snacks or order pizza in a group or by the slice from a nearby restaurant that is just a couple blocks away. We will have a “working lunch” period in the classroom.
