Course Description:  Teaches students the knowledge, skills and attitude essential for avoiding dangerous confrontations and for the safe, effective and responsible use of a concealed pistol for self-defense outside the home.  Students will practice skills using a laser simulator in the classroom before engaging in live fire.  The course is divided into two levels. Level one is nine-hours and offers the essential knowledge and skills that must be mastered in order to carry, store, and use a firearm safely and effectively for personal protection outside the home.

Upon completion, students may choose to attend level two, which includes additional range time and approximately 115 rounds of ammunition learning advanced shooting skills. Time and ammunition requirements are minimums and may be exceeded.  Note: Lesson III: Firearms and the Law, and Legal Aspects of Self-Defense, of the Personal Protection in and Outside the Home Courses is conducted by an attorney licensed to practice law within the state of Florida or a Florida Law Enforcement Officer Trainer.
