    Conceal carry instructor requirements for colorado

    Anyone know what the requirements to teach a concealed carry course in Colorado are? I have been burning google up and can't find anything relevant, I just keep coming across forums talking about ccw training where somewhere the word colorado was mentioned but nothing so far about what's required for an instructor.

    To quote relevant Colorado statute:
    18-12-202.2 "CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR" MEANS AN INSTRUCTOR FOR A FIREARMS SAFETY COURSE
    WHO IS CERTIFIED AS A FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR BY:
    (a) A COUNTY, MUNICIPAL, STATE OR FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY;
    (b) THE PEACE OFFICER STANDARDS AND TRAINING BOARD CREATED IN SECTION 24-31-302, C.R.S.;
    (c) A FEDERAL MILITARY AGENCY; OR
    (d) A NATIONAL NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT CERTIFIES FIREARMS INSTRUCTORS, OPERATES
    NATIONAL FIREARMS COMPETITIONS, AND PROVIDES TRAINING, INCLUDING COURSES IN PERSONAL
    PROTECTION, IN SMALL ARMS SAFETY, USE, AND MARKSMANSHIP
    .
    Becoming an instructer through the NRA sounds like what you need to do.

    This is directly out of Senate Bill 03-024 Which was passed into law in 2003 as C.R.S. 18-12-203

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks just got word back from a ccw instructor located here as well and he confirmed that he only requirement is the NRA certification, they have no state specific training course like Texas does.

    So is there an application, or license to be applied for from the state of Colorado, or can one start teaching CCW classes after becoming an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor? A certificate of completion has to be turned in when applying for a CCW permit, so where do these come from? Do we make our own? If so, what needs to be stated on them?

    Just to pile on...are there any other organizations besides the NRA that would meet the criteria set forth in C.R.S. 18-12-203 (d) ?

    The concealed course completion certificate typically comes from the agency that certified the instructor. If you become certified with the NRA, they will typically sell packets of information to the instructor who then charges those taking the course. Inside those packets are the certificates.

    The certification provided to a student desiring to apply for their CHP comes from the instructor. In the case of an NRA approved course like Basic Pistol or Personal Protection in or outside the home, a certificate comes with the student packet that the NRA requires the instructor to provide each student.

    If you are teaching a non NRA course, you must create your own certificate. Most, if not all, counties require your NRA instructor number. The NRA requires that if your NRA Instructor number is used, the certificates for non NRA courses contain a statement that "This is not an approved NRA course" in the same type size as the course title, which is acceptable to all counties.
    Train like your life depends on it, because it does.
