    Default Training class for FL

    What training classes are required for a non resident FL LTCF ? Does the NRA range safety officer class count ?

    Welcome to the forum. NRA Range safety officer class does not count for FL Non Resident. Any NRA Safety class that involves some live fire meets the requirements for a FL non resident permit. NRA First Steps or NRA Basic is the ideal choice. I see your in Philadelphia like me. I teach NRA courses that meet FL requirements as do many forum members here. If you need assistance getting the training completed send me a private mesage and I will gladly help you.

    Personal Defense Solutions offers a half-day class (usually Saturday morning) for Florida and Virginia at several ranges around the Philly area. They provide all paperwork, photos, fingerprints, and notarizing of the application. I wasn't too impressed with the "training" part, but it got the job done. When you walk out, you have the package ready to drop in the mail with your $117 money order. Looks like the next one is 8/7 at Ready, Aim, Fire in Bristol.

    Just as an aside, I was at a gun show in Florida last Saturday, they had a CCW course that was only 2 hours, no live-fire. They said it was good for non-residents.
    See here:
    I didn't take it, I already had a class many years ago which was a 6 hour course and did have live-fire.
