North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside Concealed Carry Weapons Permit
(CCW / CWP) Training Classes

Concealed carry weapons permit (CCW / CWP) and handgun safety training classes being demonstrated to North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside students.  

Tactical U brings the culmination of over 70 years evolution of handgun safety and firearms training to its North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside concealed carry weapons permit (CCW / CWP) students. Utilizing the same knowledge base and philosphy used to train Law Enforcement Officers, Tactical U teaches civillians to exacting standards of safety and competency. The foundation of any firearms training regimen is safety. These North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside students are first given an understanding of how their firearm functions, internally and externally, from beginning to end. Next, these North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside students are taught about ammunition types (matching the load to their application) including a basic understanding of ballistics. Tactical U requires every student to bring 50 rounds of frangible (lead-free) ammunition to our Surfside, North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles concealed carry range classes. Contrast this with the few "demonstration" rounds fired in our competitor's classes. Meeting Florida's FSS790.06 minimum requirements is not enough, we drill gun safety until you are comfortable with your weapon. Investing your time into practicing every aspect of your handgun's operation is the ONLY way to build confidence and familiarization. This philosophy of repetition is demonstrated to our North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside concealed carry weapons permit students in the firearms training video on the left.

Serving south Florida, Tactical U's Surfside, North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles Concealed Carry Weapons Permit (CCW / CWP) handgun safety course exceeds our competition in the follow areas:

  1. Our North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside concealed weapons permit courses are taught by Law Enforcement Certified Firearms Instructors. This guarantees that each Tactical U teacher proved themselves to the state of Florida that they possess the level of competence necessary to be entrusted to train active duty police officers in the usage of firearms. It is not uncommon for students of Tactical U's more advanced courses finding themselves training alongside active duty police officers supplementing their skills. Officers such as Marcelo Salazar from New York said "I was really surprised about the improvements in sight alignment among other things once I made the corrections who suggested while holding the Glock. The pointers you gave today will go a long way. Your patience in explaining things & allowing me to ask questions made me that much more comfortable with the subject matter."

  2. Classroom time: 7 hours. The majority of our "competitors" for CCW / CWP classes only give the bare minimum time and coursework required to barely achieve what is required by Florida state statute. Firearm safety is too important to risk cutting corners like that. The first three hours our North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside students experience is focused on handgun safety before you even touch a pistol. Learn everything from how your gun works to what each part is called, to the proper safe cleaning and maintenance of your weapon. There are many different types of ammunition out there, you will learn the purpose behind each category, and how that will impact the usage of your firearm (is this load designed for penetration requiring extra attention to be paid to what is BEHIND your target, or is it designed to shatter upon impact requiring extra attention to what is AROUND your target). You will learn to determine why your handgun malfunctioned, the proper method of clearing it, and resolving stoppages through immediate action drills. Tactical U's Sunny Isles, Surfside, and North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour concealed carry weapons permit class instills in you both skill and confidence to operate your handgun safely and resolve a malfunction under stressful conditions. These and more skills taught in the classroom will be reinforced on the range, such as emergency reloads, tactical reloads with retention, without retention, and safe methods of unloading pistol. As our competitors have proven anyone can own a firearm. At Tactical U we produce responsible firearm owners whom understand that handgun safety is more than just knowing how to load and fire a gun. You will learn how to properly maintain and store both your handgun and its ammunition. Each technique we teach you will be repeated until these skills are as natural to you as breathing. This familiarity and confidence will allow you to focus your attention completely on any situation where these skills are needed to protect a loved one or yourself. Once we have built a solid foundation of handgun safety and firearm knowledge THEN we take our Lighthouse Point students to the firing range and begin the drill.

  3. Time on the range: One Full hour. There is no better way to become proficient with your specific handgun than trigger time with one on one feedback from our Law Enforcement certified Firearms Instructors. Unlike a lot of North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside concealed carry weapons training classes which have you fire a couple of shots to satisfy licensing requirements our goal is to provide you with a training regimen to build your skills. This means noticeable improvement on the very first day as you fire 50 or more rounds under our professional supervision. Law enforcement firearms training dictates 7 fundamentals of firearms marksmanship which we teach you that will improve your accuracy and demonstrate it this improvement to us. Your confidence in your ability to safely deploy a firearm will build as you witness your skills improving on Day One. Another vital component of our classes is adjusting your mind set. You are applying for a permit that will allow you to carry your concealed firearm through not only Surfside, Sunny Isles, and North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour but all of Florida. This requires you to possess the proper mind set and attitude towards handguns. It starts with Situational Awareness, preparedness, and having a plan. Remember, SUDDEN and UNEXPECTED are the most common words used to describe situations that arise where life could be saved by a handgun operated by someone whom has been properly trained in its usage. Do not let the words OUT OF NOWHERE or TOOK ME BY SURPRISE describe any period of time that you were carrying a firearm. Realize that it is most likely that the luxury of pre-scripting your actions will not be afforded to you. Thus it is vital that you preparing yourself as fully as possible through becoming so familiar with your handgun that every action related to its deployment is instinctual, granting yourself the ability to use those three seconds you have to act to identify the threat, and carry out your plan.

  4. Florida Law and Federal Civil Liabilities Law. While the second amendment grants you the right to bear arms, exercising that right automatically brings new legal responsibilities upon yourself. Tactical U's North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Surfside concealed carry weapons permit classes include explaining how these new responsibilities pertain to you. You will walk out of our course knowing what you must, can, and can't do, and what the possible consequences of your actions will be.
