ILLINOIS Concealed Carry Firearm Class Exemptions & Credited Courses


Please Note:

Though Illinois Law provides credit I ask you to do an honest assessment of your abilities before applying for the credit.


Concealed Carry Firearms is DEADLY Serious!!!


This is not Target Shooting, nor is this Hunting.


Upon defending yourself by discharging your Firearm into an assailant you MUST be arrested as part of the Police Investigation.


The Previous Training Credit you will be seeking credit for was obtained without being tailored to Illinois Concealed Carry Laws


Citizens Tactical Unit ~ Firearms Training Academy has strategically incorporated Life Saving Techniques into the Basic Curriculum and I encourage all students to participate in the full Conceal Carry Program to acquire full benefits and protection; physically and Legally in the Court Room!!!

To Receive credit please bring your document and the Affidavit to your registration meeting. You may receive a copy of the Affidavit by using the button above.
