Fort Lauderdale Concealed Carry Weapons Permit
(CCW / CWP) Training Classes

Concealed carry weapons permit (CCW / CWP) Fort Lauderdale - Bring 50 rounds of ammunition because unlike most south Florida concealed weapons training courses our Fort Lauderdale concealed carry classes include a lot of range time.  We believe that it is not good enough for you to just satisfy the state's FSS790.06 requirements, you need to be familiar and comfortable with your weapon.  This photo shows the personal attention and range time every student receives.  

If you are in the greater Fort Lauderdale area and interested in a Florida Concealed Carry License (CCW / CWP) let Tactical U be your one stop training and support shop. We designed our concealed weapons permit training course to exceed all state specific requirements to legally apply for and possess a Florida State CCW (Concealed Carry Weapons Permit). Even if you are non-resident just visiting Fort Lauderdale, as long as you are a U.S. citizen you are eligible for both this course and the license (and with reciprocity in 35 states, your permit quickly becomes one of your more useful souvenirs).

Not only does our CCW / CWP course educate you, but our Fort Lauderdale staff support you as well. Once you have completed our training you will receive the certificate that is required to satisfy state statute FSS 790.06. We provide a detailed explanation of how to expedite your Concealed Carry handgun permit. When you take your class with us we break the process down into simple steps which you can follow to obtain your permit within 2-3 weeks from application / appointment with your local DOACS office. Of course, if the state of Florida is backlogged, it may take a little longer.

What makes our Fort Lauderdale Concealed Carry Weapons Permit (CCW / CWP) course different?

  1. All of our concealed weapons permit classes are taught by Law Enforcement Certified Firearms Instructors. What does this mean? Your teacher has demonstrated the level of competence necessary to be entrusted by the state of Florida to train police officers in the usage of firearms.

  2. Seven hours in the classroom. Most CCW / CWP classes just cover what is minimally necessary to satisfy the state of Florida's requirements. We believe this is wrong. For three hours we teach you the basics of gun safety. From the nomenclature of the gun to cleaning your weapon. You will learn about ammunition types, malfunctions, stoppages, and immediate action drills. When you have finished our course you will be able to confidently function, fire and clear a malfunction under stressful conditions. Emergency reloads, tactical reloads with retention, without retention, safely unloading are all skills you will learn. We will teach you how to properly maintain and store your weapons and ammunition safely. We believe proficiency of these techniques are necessary for you to have the confidence that you can rely on your weapon and your skills if you ever are in a situation where they are required. This lays a solid foundation before we bring you out on the firing range.
  3. One Full hour on the range. We believe in a lot of trigger time and hands on instruction. While a lot of other Fort Lauderdale concealed carry weapons training classes only allow you to fire a few shots, you will fire upwards of 50 rounds with us. As we teach you the 7 fundamentals of firearms marksmanship you will see your accuracy, and thus your confidence, improve. We will teach you Situational Awareness, preparedness, and the importance of having a plan. We will teach you the attitude and mind set necessary to maximize your safety. Remember, most situations where a handgun could save a life come up both QUICKLY and UNEXPECTEDLY. When you only have three seconds to identify a threat and act, you need to be so familiar with your weapon that you are acting from instinct.

  4. Florida Law and Federal Civil Liabilities Law. We teach you what new responsibilities you take upon yourself by exercising your second amendment rights.

  5. STATE APPLICATION PACKET (Unlike our competitors providing CWP / CCW courses, we assist you filling out ALL paperwork required)

  6. Additional gun training opportunities. We strongly recommend that you build upon the strong foundation we have given you with this course. We offer many more intermediate and advanced courses allowing you to enhance your skill set.

At the end of this course in Fort Lauderdale you will have everything you need to apply for your Florida Concealed Weapons License.

You get what you pay for. This is not the average CWP / CCW Class. Learn useful skills with a handgun that can save your life! Read more

This fee is mailed in with your application to the state, and therefore is not necessary to bring to class. Currently the Florida Concealed Weapons License (CCW / CWP) is valid for 7 years. Renewals are currently only $65 for an additional 7 years.

  • Your firearm. We also rent Glock 9mm pistols for $10, however it is important for you to become familiar with the actual weapon you will be carrying.
