I.C.E. Training’s Fundamentals of Concealed Carry is designed to educate students about the firearms best for concealed carry, how to carry them safely and securely, and how to use them efficiently in the context of a dynamic critical incident. This four-hour course introduces new shooters to some of the core basics of the Combat Focus® Shooting program, as well as aspects of handgun ownership and other basic information geared towards the new handgun owner.
We cover awareness, avoidance, de-escalation, gun safety, concealed carry as a system, gun, ammunition, and holster selection, drawing from a holster, reloading, multiple shooting drills designed to help you achieve a balance of speed and precision, distractions in the public environment, alternate force options, interacting with responding law enforcement, and aftermath.
Comprehensive and intensive in its approach to equip the defensive shooting candidate with the skills needed to survive serious adversity.
The course teaches students the knowledge, skills and attitude essential for avoiding dangerous confrontations and for the safe, effective and responsible use of a concealed pistol for self-defense outside the home. Students have the opportunity to attend this course using a quality strong side hip holster that covers the trigger, or a holster purse. From a review of safe firearms handling and proper mindset to presentation from concealment and multiple shooting positions, this course contains the essential skills and techniques needed to prevail in a life-threatening situation.
The NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home is divided into two levels (basic and advanced). Level one is a nine-hour course and offers the essential knowledge and skills that must be mastered in order to carry, store, and use a firearm safely and effectively for personal protection outside the home. Upon completion of level one, students may choose to attend level two, which is an additional five hours of range training and teaches advanced shooting skills. After the classroom portion, students should expect to spend several hours on the range and shoot approximately 100 rounds of ammunition during level one. Level two involves five additional hours on the range and approximately 115 rounds of ammunition. The ammunition requirements are minimum and may be exceeded. Students will receive the NRA Guide to the Basics of Personal Protection Outside The Home handbook, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure and the appropriate course completion certificates(s), NRA Basic Personal Protection Outside The Home (identifies strong-side hip holster or purse use) certificate, and NRA Advanced Personal Protection Outside The Home certificate.
The NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside The Home is for adult individuals who are not disqualified from possessing a firearm as defined by applicable federal, state, or local law and are of good repute and possess defensive pistol skills presented in the NRA Basics of Personal Protection In The Home Course. Participants must also understand the basic legal concepts relating to the use of firearms in self-defense, and must know and observe not only general gun safety rules, but also those safety principles that are specific to defensive situations. Prospective participants can demonstrate that they have the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes by producing an NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Course Certificate, or by passing the pre-course evaluation.
Our Multi-State CCW (Carry Concealed Weapons permit) class will provide you with the training requirements needed to apply for your Non-Resident Concealed Firearms Permits in Arizona and Florida. Both states are “shall-issue”, which means that barring you being a “prohibited person” (i.e. felony record, certain misdemeanors records, dishonorable discharge from military service, and/or a history of mental illness) you WILL receive a license to carry a concealed firearm. The process can be done by mail for both states. These are the two most desired CCWs due to the number of other states that will honor them. Currently, if you have a CCW from both Arizona and Florida as a non-resident you will be legally able to carry a concealed firearm in 34 states! In addition to the training aspect we also have the required applications & fingerprint cards sent to you—bring them to class and we’ll go through the paperwork with you to ensure that it’s filled out properly.
Please note that this class is NOT for California permits, where concealed carry permit issuance and training requirements are up to the Sheriff of the county you live in. Please get in touch to discuss training for California CCWs.
