Instructor Certification

SAFE endeavors to maintain the highest standards of Firearm Instructor proficiency, skill, and integrity. We accomplish this through a comprehensive process of instructor selection, quality training, ongoing monitoring, and continuous improvement. SAFE instructors are NRA certified and eligible to teach Florida Concealed Weapons students. SAFE is also approved by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety as an Instructor Organization qualified to certify trainers to teach the Minnesota Permit to Carry Course, and is listed on the BCA website.

"Concealed" Carry Permit Instructor

If you are currently certified as an Instructor by NRA and/or any other recognized training organization, and wish to become certified by SAFE, we will train you, maintain all administrative records, and keep you current with legal updates and practical information. The cost is a one-time charge of $175.

Your certificate is valid for five (5) years.

There are no annual fees, no per-student fees, and no “captive” contracts; you are free to teach whomever, and whenever, you wish.

Instructors need only agree to conform to the legal requirements of the MCPPA and the DPS, and to abide by SAFE administrative and ethical guidelines.
