Part 1: Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) Course
Florida Firearms Academy’s Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) Course is for beginner or advanced shooters who are looking to obtain their concealed weapon permit. We ask that anybody who takes this class has already taken some Basic instruction on how to safely handle and discharge a firearm. We will not teach you how to shoot a firearm during this class. This class is designed to give the student a brief on the applicable firearms laws pertaining to owning, carrying, and using Deadly Force. We will review how to apply for your permit, laws such as the places where one is not allowed to carry a firearm, how to transport firearms in a vehicle, our rights as gun owners, Use of Force Laws such as Stand Your Ground and the Castle Doctrine, what the “Warning Shot Law” really is, and when you are allowed to use Deadly Force. We will spend 2.5 – 3 hours in the classroom. This is NOT a “check the box” class. We are offering quality training, taught by instructors who have dedicated their time, checked the facts, consulted attorneys, and are concerned for your safety and well-being.

Part 2: Basic Pistol Course
Florida Firearms Academy’s Basic Pistol Class is the Foundation of handgun training. This class is intended for those who have limited to no experience with firearms, or those who want to invest in their time and focus on building a strong pillar of skills. We will spend 2 hours in the classroom, covering Firearms Safety, Range Safety, Gun Anatomy and Operation, Handgun Fundamentals, Loading and Unloading, and then spend an hour on the range. We encourage our students to fire about 50-100 rounds at this level. We will provide safety equipment, targets, rental firearms, and waive your range fee. Ammunition costs range from $15-$30 per box of 50 rounds. This class is taught NRA Certified Instructors, but it is Florida Firearms Academy’s Curriculum.
