    FL Non-Res Acceptable Training Documentation?

    I just received the application and instructions today for Florida's CCW and need some suggestions on training documentation to send them.

    I have never gone through a Hunter Safety course of any kind nor had and formal training or participated in any formal competion. What would be the fastest, cheapest way to get a form of documentation that will satisfy Florida’s requirements?

    I am new to all this so I may be "talking out of school". I would imagine any NRA approved instructor would meet the criteria.

    Check you local gun shows

    I took a short course offerred at a gun show. We then drove to a nearby range and performed the live fire. Less than four hours including time spent filling out paperwork.

    I'm curious too. I've got a bunch of training through work and related... nothing with diplomas or certificates, etc. But I can document my training with signatures form my instructors.

    I would suggest an NRA course, or hunter safety course. Military training (copy of DD 214) satisfies the requirement as well.

    hmm i went here Find A Local NRA Safety Course and searched my area for NRA courses. They want $230 for basic firearm training or what they call "First Steps". That's a little bit steep for me. I haven't looked into DNR Hunters Saftey courses yet...

    I just submitted my application last week. I took a CCW class in Nevada for my nonresident permit. That would work, but I sent a copy of my Hunter Safety Certificate. I was surprised to find it. I took it in 1978 when I was 15.

    I read that you can submit affidavits from instructors that taught you. Please check the concealed carry permit booklet. I didn't read it in detail because it didn't pertain to me.

    Good luck!

    Assemble everything:
    Envelope
    Fee
    Photograph
    Fingerprint card or proof that your fingerprints were submitted electronically by the sheriff's office using Live Scan (along with proof that you paid the sheriff's office or the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for the service).
    Proof of training
    Certified court documents (if any)
    Application with notarized signature

    Course here ranges from 50-60 bucks if you have a DD 214 from the military just make a copy and send it

    Surely with the amount of deer hunting that's done in WI, there's a good, cheap hunter safety course available. I would guess that most of the courses would be in the fall, getting people ready for it. Those couldn't be that much $$.

    OK, here's what I found.

    Cost of Course

    Beginning Monday October 3, 2005 the cost of course is $10 per student.

    Florida accepted my Kansas training certificate along with a copy of the instructors NRA credentials. Easier than my Utah permit. Mike
