USCCA Hosts Live-Fire Instructor Certification

West Bend, WI – The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) successfully launched its newest ever live-fire instructor certification course Defense Shooting Fundamentals Level 1 & 2 this past weekend as USCCA continues to build on its record as the fastest-growing association in the country whose sole focus is the responsibly armed American. 

The curriculums used were some of the most comprehensive defensive handgun programs available in the industry and are comprised of eLearning pre-requisites, books and several days of live fire drill instruction. 

Over forty USCCA instructor candidates joined the training for the opportunity to be certified in two levels of curriculum that they can take back and teach to their students.  These candidates traveled from all across the country to the training in Cascade, Wisconsin and spent 23 hours being taught, challenged and stretched beyond their normal limits.

The US Concealed Carry Association had a team of 11 Training Counselors and Instructors supporting the course of instruction spread across three ranges with 13 to 14 candidates on each range.

"The response from the candidates was extremely positive and to a person they were very excited for this opportunity to take this training back to their communities,” said Destry Jeter, Director of USCCA Training. “This course was the culmination of a 14-month development process and is only the beginning as we continue to hone the material and continue to build out our training programs. The USCCA Training Division is very proud of the role we play to continue to develop and launch curriculum that helps our instructors teach their students the skills necessary to save lives."

“I’m really proud of the work that both the Instructors and Instructor Candidates did,” said Rob Pincus, Author of Defensive Shooting Fundamentals Levels 1 & 2, Professional Trainer and Owner I.C.E Training Company. “It was an intellectually, physically and emotionally challenging weekend for them. The training that took place over the weekend is in many ways the culmination of over a year of collaborative work between two training teams that have developed what I believe to be the best defensive shooting program available today.”

The U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) provides education, training and self-defense insurance to responsible American gun owners. Headquartered in West Bend, WI, the USCCA is the largest and fastest-growing association whose sole focus is the responsibly armed American.
