The Florida CWL is honored in 36 states and counting.

This 3.5-hour class meets the requirements necessary for students to obtain their Florida Concealed Weapons License. It consists primarily of classroom lecture that covers license protocols, general do’s and don’ts, legal issues, use of force laws, basic firearm safety and a review of basic marksmanship. The class concludes with a live-fire exercise where students demonstrate safe shooting skills. Students are provided with certificates upon successful completion. We will also schedule your appointment to apply for a concealed weapon license in person at a Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) regional office or an authorized Florida tax collector's office in your area.

Florida charges separate processing fees to obtain the CCW license.
