Concealed/Carry class online in Florida?

This is a discussion on Concealed/Carry class online in Florida? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I did a search here and didn't see it discussed, although I presume it has. Anyway, can this class be taken online or must it ...

    Concealed/Carry class online in Florida?

    I did a search here and didn't see it discussed, although I presume it has.

    Anyway, can this class be taken online or must it be attended in-person?

    Thanks in advance.

    This is the requirement for FL CWFL:
    (h) Demonstrates competence with a firearm by any one of the following:
    1. Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or a similar agency of another state;
    2. Completion of any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course;
    3. Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by a law enforcement, junior college, college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school, utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association, Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, or the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services;
    4. Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies, or any division or subdivision of law enforcement or security enforcement;
    5. Presents evidence of equivalent experience with a firearm through participation in organized shooting competition or military service;
    6. Is licensed or has been licensed to carry a firearm in this state or a county or municipality of this state, unless such license has been revoked for cause; or
    7. Completion of any firearms training or safety course or class conducted by a state-certified or National Rifle Association certified firearms instructor;

    If it meets any of these requirements, it should be okay. Verify first.

    The NRA strictly forbids the use of online courses.

    From the NRA Instructors training policy updates:
    The National Rifle Association of America currently has no online firearm training courses. All of our firearm training courses (Home Firearm Safety excluded) have a
    shooting component on a range. Some NRA certified instructors have created online firearm training programs, and have issued certificates to individuals that take their
    courses, using the title NRA Certified Instructor. Under no circumstances may NRA’s name or your NRA credentials be associated with any online firearms training
    course. If NRA’s name or your NRA credentials are associated with a course, you must, among other things, actually work with the students, face-to-face, to allow you to
    evaluate whether they perform the safe operation of a firearm, and shoot with a sufficient level of skill. This policy applies to any course which might result in issuing
    any certificate that bears the title of NRA Certified Instructor, or if the course is associated in any way whatsoever with a certification issued by the NRA.


    So at least the NRA Certified Instructor portion is a no go for online courses.
    Train like your life depends on it, because it does.
