CCW Training Video Recommendations

Be Prepared.

Prior to class, all CCW candidates should view each of the practical training videos below.

Congratulations for following through with your California CCW permit; it is a big achievement and a profound responsibility.

With years of thought and training, instructors attempt to assure CCW candidates are safe, knowledgeable and proficient. Most important, we have a duty to help CCW Candidates consider their new status as an armed person and cultivate a responsible attitude toward self-defense and firearms.

CCW permit holders have an awesome responsibility to their community to conceal and carry their chosen firearm in a safe, considerate, legal manner with unswerving maturity, intelligence and discretion.

As instructors, we cannot further develop our syllabus or improve our discussions and demonstrations without candid, constructive feedback and advice. Your generosity of time can greatly help us to help you and future CCW candidates.

Using the Feedback Form, will you please give some time to help us become better instructors?

We sincerely honor you and your choice to become a thoughtful, responsible armed citizen whose education never ends.

Sincerely Yours,

Ray Higbee and Stephanie Trapasso
