NRA Basic CCW Class

Prior to attending an NRA CCW Certification, you must have an NRA Basic Pistol or Defensive Pistol Certification. Without this requirement you cannot attend the workshop.
The goal of the CCW is to teach the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to carry a concealed pistol for personal defense. The NRA CCW Course is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation.

This instructor-led only course gives you direct instruction from an NRA-certified instructor from beginning to end and may be conducted in a classroom and on a shooting range with an instructor.
Course topics include Firearm Safety (Mandatory), Pistol Nomenclature and Selecting a Pistol for Self-Defense, Basic Defensive Pistol Skills, Drawing from Concealment, Loading and Stoppage Remediation, Mindset, Carry Modes and Pistol Concealment, Firearm Cleaning, and Sport Shooting and Training Activities.

Additionally, students may complete live fire training and a nationally standardized shooting qualification while on the range with an NRA Certified Instructor.

Students will receive reference books, take an NRA CCW Student Examination, and receive a course completion certificate bearing the signature of the NRA Secretary and your NRA Certified Instructor.

The class is usually held at the outdoor range facility located at:

207 Buckeye
Killeen, Texas 76542
