What You Need To Know About Concealed Weapon Classes in Florida

Florida Concealed Weapon Classes

A Concealed Weapons Class allows you to apply for a license to carry a concealed weapon. To obtain a Concealed Weapon Permit in Florida, you must meet the training and licensing requirements. XpressGuards is one of the top-rated security schools in Florida with complete training programs for regular citizens or future security guards.

What Is a Concealed Weapon Class?

A Concealed Weapon Class is a training program that allows regular citizens to apply for a concealed weapon permit to carry and conceal a gun. However, this license generally permits a person to carry a concealed weapon for private use, and not for security guards while on duty. Security guards who will be working in an armed capacity in Florida are usually required to obtain additional licenses such as an G Firearm License. But this depends on the employer/the company a security guard works for.

A Concealed Weapon Class teaches citizens the basics of carrying and handling a gun, maintenance, as well as state laws regarding the use of firearms. The course can take about 8 hours, depending on the security school and its training program. The class includes classroom hours plus time spent at the shooting range.

Our Concealed Weapon Class in Florida covers the following:

  • Gun safety and handling of firearms
  • Weapon maintenance
  • Equipment
  • Concealment
  • Ammunition
  • State laws
  • Proper grip
  • Cartridge malfunctions

Concealed weapon training is conducted by professional instructors such as members of law enforcement and ex-military.

Why Are Concealed Weapon Classes a Requirement in Florida?

Individuals who wish to conceal and carry in Florida are required to pass appropriate training that teaches them the basics about gun safety, maintenance, proper equipment, state laws, the use of deadly force, and overall, the responsibility of carrying a concealed gun.

Usually, a Concealed Weapon Permit is issued for use in private capacity so it is not sufficient for those who wish to carry a weapon while on duty. Security guards who want to work in armed capacity usually have to pass additional training and obtain additional licensing.

Generally, a security guard that doesn’t have a license to provide armed security services is not allowed to carry. However, this depends on the state you live in as well as on the job requirements. For more information on concealed weapon permits and armed guard licenses, you can seek legal counsel in Florida or contact us here at XpressGuards and we will do our best to clarify the matter.

What Are the Requirements for a Concealed Weapon Class?

All legal residents of Florida who are at least 21 years old are eligible to apply for a concealed weapon permit and attend a Concealed Weapon Class. Apart from this, the only other requirement for applicants is to bring a valid government issued ID when they arrive for the training.
