    Florida Acceptable Training Documentation

    I am planning on applying for a Florida permit. My Kansas permit required an instruction class on CCW. The certificate of completion I received lists the instructor's state instructor number but doesn't specifically state that she is NRA Certified (even though she is).

    For the Florida app. it asks for a course that is state certified or taught by an NRA certified instructor. Do I need to get more documentation than what I already have, or will this suffice? Any advice from previous Florida applicants is appreciated.

    Try these questiosns first then go to the statutes. There is a link on the page at question #4. If that doesn't clear it up then call the DOACS.

    You might get away with sending them a copy of your certificate, and you’re Kansas CCL.

    But, considering the lag time right now, you might want to call and speak with someone first, and then put a note inside stating that you called and whom you spoke with.

    If you can get in touch with the instructor just have them make a copy of their NRA Instructor Certification Card which has all the endorsements and instructor certification number.

    I think you are OK but (As stated above) call them to make sure. The process takes enough time without adding errors or mistakes to it

    A friend of mine went through a situation like this last year. They asked for a copy of the other states course certificate and a copy of the instructors NRA training certificate. I would still like to hear it from the horses mouth incase there's been some sort of admin change or something since then.

    The NRA doesn't certify by state. Their courses are generic. You will be fine with a copy of your Kansas certificate. I also sent in a copy of my MN permit.
