Looking to obtain a Concealed Weapons License (CWL)?

Not all concealed weapons license classes are created equal!

We pride ourselves in far exceeding the state minimum requirements (which sadly is not very much) for a Florida Concealed Weapons License Class. Our class is not your typical rushed “gun-show” class, and it’s not some “internet special” designed to get you in the door with a bunch of required upsells. It’s also not some “add on” class that you take in the back room of a dilapidated storefront.

We provide:

  • Professional training
  • Highly experienced (and easy-going) instructor
  • A world class training facility dedicated to self-defense and firearms training
  • Equipment that is only available to law enforcement and military trainees

We know the types of training out there, and we assure you that we provide the best concealed weapons license class experience.

Took the concealed class here, very informative. So much so that I decided to come back for the defensive handgun class and will be back for every other class. Ronin knows his stuff and is a amazing teacher. A++

This is an outstanding place to learn how to think and handle yourself with a firearm. So far I have taken the concealed weapons class and the pistol level one classes, and I plan to take more. The instructors are knowledgeable, professional, and personable, they make learning easy & fun. I would highly recommend training here!

We just left from taking a Concealed Weapons class and I was very happy with choosing Tactical Preparation to take the class. The instructors Keith and Trevor were very informative and funny. Their sense of humor made the class very enjoyable. I am really looking forward to coming back in the future for another class.

The CWP class was very enjoyable, HIGHLY educational, and extremely professional. Anyone looking to take a CWP class should definitely sign up for this one. Not only did they educate you on all the laws, they gave you real life scenarios to consider on how to react and stay safe. Will definitely tell everyone to sign up here!

I took the Pistol Level 3 class and it was awesome. In my previous job I did a tremendous amount of Tactical Training including SRT training, close quarters combat, etc... I found the classes at Tactical Prep to be on par if not better than anything I've previously done. I was concerned the weapons would be like the SIRT Pistol but they have full recoil and ammo counts. Very realistic stress based training.

The pistol level three class was a lot more intense than I had anticipated. It was very busy and a lot of fun. Four hours went by fast. As an NRA firearm instructor myself, I would definitely recommend this class for anyone who plans to carry concealed in public. Ronin was our instructor and he was very knowledgeable in close quarter combat situations and taught a lot of techniques that are used by police officers as well as military special forces. Ronin showed us some other combat pistol tactics that if practiced on a regular basis would definitely save my life in the event of a active shooter or shooters situation. Thanks to everyone at Tactical Prep for an awesome experience. I will be back.

The CWP class was very informative, CJ (the instructor) was extremely knowledgeable with a great sense of humor and a ton of experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get a concealed weapon permit. I took a previous class years ago and it wasn’t nearly this educational. CJ offered discussions with real life scenarios and potential consequences. I will definitely be attending more classes offered here!

Overall very good presentation. lots of hands on training in getting the students prepared for any survival situation at home ,office ,etc. also I gained a lot of knowledge on the legal aspects of owning a weapon under Florida statutes 790 , 766.After many years of serving in the military; I thought I still had the ability to survive a criminal attack .I was wrong , I highly recommend training with Tactical Prep.USA . The instructors; they will give you the confidence and ability to survive any CQB and Hand to Hand Combat situation. All instructors have a solid background in Law enforcement Spec.Ops. or from the US Special Operations Community.Remember, you can never get enough training...

What a fantastic place! Was there tonight for a ladies' group meeting and loved it! I learned a lot, practicing drawing a weapon and shooting in life-like scenarios. Totally different from stand-still shooting in a range. The staff is super-friendly and knowledgeable and not a bit judgmental when you do something wrong; they turn it into a teaching moment. If you carry, you need this training as much as range time!

Learn far beyond the average Concealed Weapons License Class:

Many of the students we get into our CWL and self-defense pistol classes say the same thing….

 

In their Concealed Weapons License class, they didn’t learn when they can and when they can’t use their weapon. We find this unacceptable!

  • Like most CWL classes, we will cover the safety and legal aspects required.
  • Where we differ is how we cover them:
    • We utilize a hands-on experiential learning model designed to provide you with solid knowledge, skills and judgement.
    • Specifically, using reality based scenarios, you will have to make decisions that could affect your life and the life of your attacker.
    • In other words, you will learn by actually doing rather than simply listening to an instructor or reading a statute.
    • This reality based method is how we at Tactical Prep differ from everyone else who teaches a concealed weapons license class!

Common Questions

Do I have to be experienced with a gun to take a class?

NO!  The CWL class is a beginner class. If you need additional self-defense training with a firearm we encourage you to continue your training with our “Defensive Handgun” Training.

Why Tactical Prep?

The State of FL has almost no requirements for trainers in terms of content or length so it’s truly a buyer beware market. Some trainers do a CWL class in 1-hour, others do it in 4+ hours. We guarantee you’ll learn more from our 2  to 2.5 hour class than you would from any other provider. Here is why….

  1. We have great audio/visuals designed for adult learners.
  2. Our instructors won’t waste your time with hours of “war stories”.
  3. You’ll get to demonstrate proficiency using 100% safe revolver and a semi-automatic pistol prior to the live fire.
  4. We provide all firearms, ammunition and safety equipment for the live fire exercise.
  5. You’ll have a great time applying you knowledge and skills using our unique shoot/no shoot scenarios.

Should I bring my personal gun to class?

NO! We provide all equipment for the Concealed Weapons Classes. No additional range fees, ammo costs, rental fees. Just come as you are and be ready to learn. 

Are your instructor's certified?

All of our Concealed Weapons License (CWL) instructors are NRA or USCCA certified. In addition, our instructors have amazing credentials, real world experience and a love for teaching. The credibility and effectiveness of our training rests in the hands of our instructors. That’s why we have 5-star reviews on all social media platforms. 

Can I take an Online Course?

NO! Thankfully the State of FL will not accept online Concealed Class Certificates. Do you really think a 20-minute online video will cover the FL Statutes enough to keep you out of prison? Seriously? 

Concealed Weapon License Class (CWL) Options and Length:

Option 1: Standalone Concealed Weapons License Class

If you just want to take the stand-alone concealed weapons license class, we offer it in 2-hours.

The course covers:

  • Firearms Safety
  • Legalities (FL Statutes)
  • Innovative shoot/no shoot decision making lessons
  • Introduction to some important self-defensive shooting techniques
  • Live fire exercise for certification
Concealed Weapons License Class Certificate Icon

Upon successful completion, you get a certificate and easy to follow instructions needed to apply for your Florida Concealed Weapons License (CWL), which 35 other states recognize.

Option 2: CWL course PLUS Defensive Tactics & Techniques

If you really want to learn how to use your firearm in self defensive situations check out our 4-hour Self-Defense Pistol Level 1 Class

Learn to:

  • Recognize your threat (Situational awareness, early recognition, body language, etc)
  • Draw (Effectively present a weapon from a holster or from concealed position)
  • Move (Aggressive, lateral and tactical movements)
  • Find Cover (Use cover and concealment effectively)
  • Communicate (Use simple and effective verbal commands to deter your attacker)

Why get a Florida Concealed Weapons License (CWL)?

A handgun is probably the most effective self-defense weapon because it offers any person, regardless of age, sex, and strength, the ability to deliver deadly force.

According to the United States Justice Department, an armed citizen is more likely to escape rape, robbery, and assault than an unarmed citizen. The Justice Department also found that an armed citizen is twice as likely to avoid injury during a robbery than his or her unarmed counterpart.

Unfortunately, too many people assume that mere possession of a gun will guarantee their safety. While a pistol will augment your personal protection, if you are not technically skilled in its use, and psychologically prepared to use it, merely having it will do you no good! Our concealed weapons license class will help with the following:

  • Deliver deadly force if needed

  • More likely to escape violent crime than unarmed citizen

  • 2X’s as likely to avoid injury during a robbery

Concealed Weapon License (CWL) Eligibility Requirement:

To possess a Concealed Weapon License (CWL) you must meet the Florida statutes 790.06. Generally, this means you:

  • Are a citizen of the United States or a permanent resident alien
  • Are 21 years of age or older 
  • Do not suffer from a physical infirmity which prevents the safe handling of firearm
  • Are NOT ineligible to possess a firearm (i.e. convicted of a felony, etc.)
  • Do not chronically use alcohol or other substances that can impair normal faculties
  • Desire a legal means to carry a concealed weapon or firearm for lawful self-defense
  • Demonstrates competence with a firearm by taking an approved training course (like ours)
  • Learn more about the eligibility requirements: FL Department of Agriculture. (External Link)
