About the Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Instructor Training

Level 1 Firearms Instructor Hell Week™ Training Event

The Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Instructor Training is an intense training opportunity for aspiring Idaho Concealed Enhanced Carry Instructors to maximize their certifications in less time. 

Expert lectures from local Idaho guest speakers, visual presentations, and proven training techniques are taught to the instructors. Practical pistol & personal defense concepts and challenging shooting drills go into this rewarding training experience.

By the end of the Instructor Training, instructor candidates gain valuable knowledge and skills to teach concealed carry concepts. Personal self-awareness training includes topics for home and business defense strategies.

Classroom Training

Classroom training is essential to teaching students Modern Gun Training Techniques. The class demands instructor candidates know and understand new techniques to train their students properly.

When leveraging Modern Gun Training Techniques, students learn more in less time than with traditional training methods. Having students shoot hundreds of rounds of ammunition at the range accomplishes nothing. Taking students to the range is a waste of time when you cannot improve the students shooting. Hoping students will shoot better, without a formal training regiment, is a waste of everyone’s time and energy. Especially the students.

Our instructor training regiment encourages pistol instructors to “train” with their students. Leveraging a “training approach” each time they go to the range. This instills in students they don’t go to the range to “practice”; they go to “train.”

Training Pistol

Level 1 Firearms Pistol Instructor Training Course is focused on leveraging modern-day tools to enhance the student’s ability to learn. Our modern-day gun training methodology has students learning more in less time.

Teaching is the concept of student involvement during every stage of the training process. By having students involved with the process, their knowledge of pistol safety, shooting fundamentals, and maintenance increase dramatically. While an instructor can demonstrate a skill, the student must be able to perform the skill equally. Instructors who show their students how to load ammunition, fire the gun, and then how to empty the gun are doing a great disservice to the student.

Understanding why training is important to both the shooter and the instructor goes a long way in understanding how to be an efficient and effective instructor. Students need to learn and instructors need to learn by attending classes on how to instruct.

The Hell Week™ Pistol Instructor Training Difference

Hell Week™ Pistol Instructor Training experience.

The Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Instructor class is an intense training opportunity to earn your certifications in 1 week.

The Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Instructor Course is a great opportunity for aspiring and experienced instructors to learn advanced time-proven training methods, transfer shooting concepts and skills to students, and improve concealed carry concepts. Applying modern gun training methodologies, training tools, Idaho Law, and practical teaching exercises, instructors and students see a vast improvement in their shooting skills.

There are many “become an instructor” scams available. These training programs teach instructors to teach the basics of pistol shooting. Classes are taught by poorly trained individuals (often called “Counselors”) who possess little knowledge about concealed carry concepts. Students receive sub-par training focused only on how to shoot their guns without concern for concealed carry concepts.

The course regimen is focused on the education of the instructor candidate. This includes extensive training designed to exceed state requirements. As a result, instructors become subject matter experts (SMEs) in concealed carry concepts within their states and when traveling.

Our extensive training is apparent to those who know the Idaho Level 1 Firearms Training Certification.

Breakout and Teamwork Sessions

Breakout and Teamwork Sessions

Break-out and teamwork sessions encourage instructors to work as a team. Instructors use breakout sessions to enhance each other’s knowledge as they grow to develop better ways to teach students.

Instructors learn small group sessions are more effective than trying to teach a massive amount of students in a large group environment. Team presentations are assigned to deepen the instructor’s knowledge and understanding while developing public speaking skills.

States Have Different Conceal Carry Instructor Requirements

The CCW-certified instructor’s responsibility is to train students on how to conceal and carry a firearm in public. To become a conceal carry instructor, most states require you to provide a lesson plan. The training you receive during Hell Week™ provides the necessary skills to create an acceptable lesson plan.

Note: Some states have additional instructor training requirements. This may include attending a course taught by the state to be certified as a firearms instructor. Level 1 Firearms Training LLC makes every effort to be aware of these requirements and actively reaches out to our instructors about these changes.

Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry License versus Wisconsin Carry Conceal Weapons License – CCW

Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Reciprocity Map

Idaho Enhanced Conceal Carry Reciprocity Map

Pictured to the left is the Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry reciprocity Map.

When compared to another state with a similar license, Idaho beats them all hands down.

Note in the example below, Wisconsin is not honored in Washington State, Oregon, New Mexico, Texas, Minnesota, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Florida. There’s really very little need to have any other concealed carry license.

Oh, by the way, Oregon requires a non-resident license which is only issued to California, Idaho, and Washington State residents – Utah licenses are not honored.

Wisconsin Carry Concealed Weapons Reciprocity Map

Level 1 Pistol Instructor Hell Week™ events offer the opportunity to work together with fellow instructors. Wisconsin’s Carrying Concealed Weapons License – CCW permits require a simple Hunters Ed course to apply.

While the state of Wisconsin itself does not require pistol instructors to teach anything more than a basic gun safety course, you could be jeopardizing more than you think.

Here’s where everything goes bad. A student attends your class, the use of deadly force is discussed, and the student commits homicide and blames you for bad advice. Your defense? You have none. The state of Wisconsin does not authorize you to teach a Conceal Carry Weapons Permit course. It allows you to teach basic pistol safety lessons.
