Covert Carry Instructor Certification


This 3-day / 24-hour instructor certification course is designed to teach firearms instructors the various principles and techniques associated with covert (concealed) carry for plain clothes, undercover, and off-duty officers.  Most basic firearms instructor courses briefly discuss covert carry methods.  This instructor course goes much further in depth.  Emphasis will be placed on the various covert carry methods, the pros and cons of those methods, and how to safely conduct live-fire training using those methods of covert carry.

This course is approved by the NRA LE Division for 24 hours of continuing education credit.

NOTE: This course requires the use of carbines / rifles. Students don't need to be certified as a rifle instructor to attend.  However, students must have successfully completed a rifle operator certification class to attend this course.
