The CCW Essentials course introduces the student to practical techniques for self-defense shooting. This course is for the individual that has completed introductory training for their concealed handgun permit and now desires to become proficient and confident while carrying a concealed handgun. With the fundamentals of marksmanship as the basis for everything taught, the student will develop consistency across each core competency to become an effective and efficient shooter.
Many of the techniques that are introduced will be new to the student, but each is introduced in a progressive, building block approach. The learning process starts in the classroom covering equipment and considerations for effective carry, followed by lecture on proper sight management, the draw and the application of the fundamentals for defensive shooting. After practical application and dry fire training, we transition to the range to build on prior marksmanship training, develop new skills, push through old limitations and introduce the student to the dynamics of concealed carry. The ultimate goal is to build functional, defensive handgun skills built on the foundation of the shooting fundamentals, while introducing the student to problem solving in a dynamic environment.
