The Concealed Firearm Course I teach was developed by the NRA. The course covers the Virginia Concealed Weapons Law; federal, state and local restrictions; the Virginia law concerning the use of deadly force; firearm maintenance and safe storage; equipment and ammunition selection; proper loading and shooting techniques; and, concludes with a written exam.

The firearm proficiency portion of the course is a 60-round, 300 points. The student will get practice and experience in  firing at a stationary target under pressure. The course is fired at three distances: 3 yards, 7 yards and 15 yards.
