Carrying a concealed firearm for personal protection and self-defense is a serious force option that carries with it significant personal responsibilities and criminal/civil liabilities. Therefore, the Street Safe Defense vetting process to certify citizens for the law enforcement CCW permit process is thorough.
By registering for the Street Safe defense CCW or CCW Renewal courses, you are automatically attesting that you are an INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL shooter who is thoroughly familiar with their firearm(s) and holster system(s) and can operate safely and efficiently in a group setting.


The CCW and CCW Renewal Courses are restricted to INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL handgun shooters ONLY. An “intermediate-level shooter,” is defined as a person who is thoroughly familiar with their firearm(s) and holster systems; has significant practice drawing, firing and re-holstering their firearm(s) from the holstered position and can operate safely and without difficulties when drawing, firing and re-holstering in a group setting.

This course is NOT designed for the novice shooter, nor anyone who is not thoroughly familiar and practiced with their firearm(s) and holster(s) systems. Those novice/inexperienced persons who register for this class and are found not to be an intermediate-level shooter by the range staff, will be dismissed from class without refund of tuition.
