Conceal Carry Instructor (CCW) and License to Carry Instructor (LTC) Training
The Hell Week™ Instructor Package is an intense training opportunity for aspiring Pistol and Concealed Carry Instructors to maximize their certifications in less time. Expert lectures, 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 Hell, Week™ instructors gain valuable knowledge and skills to teach concealed carry pistol concepts. Additional self-awareness training includes topics for home and business defense strategies.
Classroom training is essential to teach modern gun training techniques to our aspiring instructors. There’s more to training than simply bringing hundreds of rounds of ammunition, showing students how to load ammunition, and then “practicing” at the range. Our instructor training program encourages pistol instructors to “train” with their students, improve student marksmanship skills, and assist students in building on the fundamentals.
Get More Out of your Education
One of the most important facets of conducting a training class is the importance of building a training team. Training teams work together to plan, organize, promote and conduct courses. By having a training team in place you have additional resources to plan your class.
Training teams also allow you to take a break between lectures and presentations. Team members may be subject matter experts (SME’s) on a specialized subject topic There may also be an occasion when you want to invite a guest speaker to your class. A training team makes
Not all training classes need an entire team. Some are small and intimate groups where a single instructor can carry the class on their own.
Level 1 Firearms Hell Week™ training will cover the topic of building a training team, the number of team members you will need, and how to find the resources you need to present your course.
The Hell Week™ Pistol Instructor Training Difference
Hell Week™ meets and exceeds state requirements nationally.
Hell Week™ is a great opportunity for aspiring and experienced instructors to learn advanced time-proven training methods, the ability to transfer shooting concepts and skills to students, and improved concealed carry concepts. Applying modern gun training methodologies, training tools, and practical teaching exercises, instructors and students see a vast improvement in their shooting skills.
There are many “become an instructor” weekend training programs available, taught by poorly trained individuals who become certified instructors in just two to three days. Training events are typically less than eight hours a day, conducted over a single weekend, and have a rushed agenda. We call these “paper certifications”. These come about because the instructor just wants to get paid at the end of the day.
Level 1 Pistol Firearms Training Hell Week™ involves more than a weekend of training. Our course regiment is focused on the education of the instructor candidate. Unlike classes such as the “Basics of Pistol Training”, we provide the instructor with more than just how to load and fire a gun. The extensive training is apparent to those who know the Level 1 Firearms Training Certification Program.
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.
Essential to assuring a pistol or conceal carry class runs smoothly is assigning instructors and the roles they will participate in while training. Ideas are discussed and shared to make these assignments.
For example, you might decide you will need someone at the range watching students as they shoot. That person will participate in the training process as the Range Safety Officer (RSO) or as the Chief Range Safety Officer (CRSO); depending on how large the event is. By participating and working as a team, more work can be done more easily. This is just one example of why team breakouts can improve your teaching skills.
Advanced Pistol Training Techniques
Pistol instructor candidates At Level 1 Firearms Training LLC earn their certifications through hard work and dedication. Learning objectives are held to much higher standards than those weekend certification programs. Instructor candidates must demonstrate their ability to meet the higher standards and demonstrate the ability to transfer those skills to their students.
Instructor candidates must be able to teach students what’s expected from a drill and why it’s essential. Instructors then demonstrate the drill to verify the drill is attainable. Instructors then have their students perform the drill. Instructors provide positive feedback and suggestions on improving the students shooting skills while providing positive constructive suggestions to help students advance to their next level of shooting skills.
Firearms and the Law
Each Hell Week™ event is custom-tailored to cover the many laws of your state. Conceal Carry pistol instructors must be fluent and knowledgeable about firearms and the law in the states in which they are instructing. Federal, state, and local laws are highlighted and discussed to provide an in-depth understanding of how they may affect your students. Essential topics are highlighted as what you should know when teaching a concealed carry class. Instructors are encouraged to seek legal advice on what laws they can comment about, and how to legally comment on those laws without appearing to be providing legal advice to their students.
Extensive range time is scheduled for each Hell Week™ event. Instructors must demonstrate mastery of their craft from beginner to advanced instructor levels. Range training is at the heart of the instructor certification program. Instructors demonstrate, teach, and show the drills they will expect their students to perform efficiently.
Observation, positive feedback, and knowing what to look for when students are qualifying are essential during the training qualification process. The instructor’s primary goal when assessing students is to ensure students are safe, responsible, and proficient shooters.
Instructors Take a Break
We know and understand that training can take a toll on our instructor candidates. Sometimes you just have to stop and take a breather. Some of our most memorable moments are when instructors relax, take a break, and add some fun to the training event.

States Have Different Conceal Carry Requirements
One of the many benefits of becoming a certified pistol instructor allows you the opportunity to train the public on the proper way to conceal carry. To become a conceal carry instructor, you must apply to the state you intend to teach a class. The training you receive during the Level 1 Firearms Instructor Training – Hell Week™ event is nationally recognized throughout the nation. Note: Some states will also have additional pistol training requirements, such as attending a special course taught by the state itself. Level 1 Firearms Training LLC makes every effort to remain aware of these changes and actively reaches out to our instructors about changes in their state.
Wisconsin Carry Conceal Weapons License – CCW
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.
Some of our best students come from our Women’s Only Workshop development classes. Women Only classes are the next revolution in training events. Women relate to women training them how to use their firearms, conceal carry, and shoot accurately.
Sorry guys, Women Only Workshops are best left for the ladies to teach. Don’t fall under the illusion that women love your training – it’s wrong. If they have a choice, women will choose a female instructor hands down.
The pistol training community needs female instructors to step up and take charge. Women-only opportunities are endless for this new and evolving market. Women instructors are needed, and women’s classes are not offered often enough. Step up and grab this growing segment of the industry.
