This class meets required training for a CCW application in the following counties and cities: Stanislaus, Calaveras, Fresno, Kings, Madera, Merced, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, Stockton (city), and Tulare County.

Although this training does meet the mandated training requirements in the counties and cities listed, it does not guarantee the issuance of a CCW.  This can only be done by the local issuing agency.  Regardless of this fact, the NFI CCW Class will teach you how to purchase, store, transport, and use a personal protection firearm! Many of our students live in areas that do not issue CCW permits, yet they are still serious about personal protection; get the training you need to safely and responsibly protect you and your family.

This class is taught by Chuck Fields, Senior Instructor for NFI.

Chuck’s credentials include CA DOJ Certified Firearms Instructor, Nationally Certified Multi-Discipline Firearms Instructor, Nationally Certified Chief Range Safety Officer, Military Veteran/Helicopter Pilot, and former Law Enforcement Officer.
