Your instructor is a former United States Marine and has 30 years experience in training qualified candidates in CCW and Class “G” in the State of Florida.
Class “G” Statewide Firearm License Requirements:
Only Class “C,” Class “CC,” Class “D” Class “M,” Class “MA” and Class “MB”
licensees are permitted to bear a firearm, and any such licensee who bears a firearm must also have a Class “G” license.
To apply for a Class “G” license, you must be at least 18 years old.
You must be either a U.S. citizen or a permanent legal resident alien to qualify
for a Class “G” license, and you must provide documentation confirming your citizenship status.
If you were born in the United States, submit a copy of your birth
certificate, U.S. passport, Social Security card, driver license, state-issued ID card, or voter registration card.
If you are a naturalized citizen, submit a copy of your U.S. passport or the official document issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services indicating that you are a naturalized citizen.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, submit a copy of your Permanent Legal Resident Alien card.
An applicant for a Class “G” license must submit proof of having completed an
initial course of instruction that includes 28 hours of classroom and range
training pertaining to the use of firearms in connection with duties regulated
under Chapter 493, Florida Statutes (F.S.).
The 28-hour course curriculum is outlined here:
Legal Aspects of Use of Firearms — 12 hours
This section of the course covers applicable portions of
chapters 493, 775, 776 and 790, F.S., as well as civil and criminal liability
issues in connection with the use of firearms.
Operational Firearms Safety and Firearms Mechanical Training — 8 to 11 hours
This portion of the curriculum is intended to provide students with a
comprehensive understanding of the mechanical operations of a firearm and
how to handle firearms safely. A written examination of 100 questions will be
administered covering the portions of the curriculum dealing with legal use
and operational/mechanical training.
Firearms Qualification — 8 hours*
This segment of the training course includes practical exercises in the
handling of firearms — stance, grip, sighting, etc. — as well as topics
pertaining to range safety and range commands. The instructor will require
students to fire 144 rounds as part of the firearms qualification for initial
licensure (48 rounds of practice fire plus two cycles of 48 rounds for initial
qualification). No more than eight hours of the 28 hours of training shall
consist of range training.
*A Class “K” instructor can, at their discretion, administer as few as five hours
of range qualification training if the student demonstrates sufficient mastery of
the core principles of safe firearms handling (to include shooting a qualifying
score) without the full eight hours of range training. However, reducing the
number of hours of range training will require teaching additional hours
elsewhere in the curriculum so that the cumulative total of firearms training
amounts to 28 hours as required by Section 493.6105(5), F.S.
Annual Renewal Training
To maintain licensure, the Class “G” license holder must complete four hours
of requalifying training each year . The annual training course
shall consist of a review of the curriculum topics listed above as part of the
initial training requirements to include any recent changes in the law. License
holders will be required to achieve a passing score on a cycle of fire
consisting of 48 rounds. If the license holder fails to achieve a passing score
after three attempts, they will be instructed to seek additional remedial training and schedule another requalification attempt at a later date.
