2. Are Online Classes Good Enough?
Within the firearm industry, there is a lot of debate about what constitutes enough training to prepare someone for carrying a concealed firearm. Throughout the United States, Legal Heat teaches nearly 100 different in-person concealed firearm permit courses each month. These courses will range from 4 hours in length to over 3 days in duration, depending on the state laws where we operate. Legal Heat’s position on what constitutes enough training is that there is never enough training.
We encourage all of our students, whether in-person or online, to continue their firearm safety and functionality training for their entire lifetime. However, when it comes to qualifying someone to exercise their inalienable right to carry a firearm for self-protection, we are not going to force anyone to do anything more than state law requires. If your state requires a 16-hour in-person training course (like Illinois), then we are going to offer the absolute best 16-hour course in the industry. If other states (such as Virginia, Idaho or Iowa) only require completion of an online training course, then we will offer the best online training course possible. We are here to encourage people to exercise their rights, not to dissuade them from doing so.
This course has been designed by attorneys, professional firearm instructors, college professors, and graphic designers. Make no mistake, this is the finest online training course on the market.
Once you complete your online training course we hope to see you in one of our hundreds of in-person training courses as you continue your firearm training education.
