Concealed Carry (CCW/FOID) Training Course - Illinois (IL)

In addition to the FOID card, residents of Illinois must obtain a Concealed Carry Permit in order to carry a hangdun. NACFI offers the training required as a prerequisite to obtaining a Concealed Carry (CCW) Permit.

NACFI has ten years of experience designing and teaching License to Carry Courses.  Our courses and instructors teach our clients how to survive an attack physically, morally, legally and financially.  No other carry permit class covers these topics because the no one told them they had to.  NACFI has taught over 45,000 conceal and carry license holders in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, and Kansas and our courses are accepted in Florida.
