    Class "K" Instructors License

    Number 1, my phone has been ringing off the hook for the last month for CWFL training, which is good. About 6 months ago I received and inquiry from a man wanting to renew his Florida Class "G" armed security guard license, but he only had about 3 or 4 days to renew, so I told him that their wasn't much that I could do for him on such short notice. Fast forward to this week, and I have received two requests for Florida Class "G" instruction, which can only be handled by someone with a Florida Class "K" instructor's license. I've tried researching the requirements via google, Florida DOACS and FDLE, and find nothing but confusing and conflicting answers.

    Can someone steer me in the right direction pertaining to the requirements to obtain a Florida Class "K" Instructor's license? Also, I told the last guy that called a few minutes ago that I would see what I could find out about other Class "K" instructors in our area. Is there a published list of such instructors?

    Cheers y'all,
    Ken

    Is this what you are looking for?

    http://www.freshfromflorida.com/onestop/forms/16020.pdf

    In order to qualify for the Class “K” license, you must submit a copy of one of the following certificates with your
    application:
    1. The Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission Firearms Instructor's Certificate.
    2. The National Rifle Association Police Firearms Instructor's Certificate.
    3. The National Rifle Association Security Firearms Instructor's Certificate.
    4. A Firearms Instructor's Certificate from a federal agency.
    Note: Only a copy of one of the aforementioned certificates will satisfy the training requirement. Documentation
    reflecting that you have taken the training required to obtain one of the certificates listed above is not acceptable.
    • You must also successfully complete the Firearms Instructor's examination administered by the Division of Licensing.

    Wow. DOACS is one screwed up website.

    Ken, you should be able to get what you need with a phone call to the Division of Licensing. You're FBI instructor cert is all you should need to apply for K license. Below is a link to the K license application. If all else fails, I can put you in touch with someone who knows all about the program.

    Why you say that? Not a current list?

    eta: just checked someone I know gives instruction for "G" and his contact info is restricted, so I guess the public data is optional.

    Hodawg,

    I'm a K licensed instructor.

    To obtain the K license, you have to be a NRA Law Enforcement Certified Instructor or a FDLE CJST certified instructor. Once you have those, you can apply to the Division of Licensing for the K.

    To become a NRA Law Enforcement Certified Instructor, you have to attend either the Pistol Instructor Development Course or the the Pistol/Shotgun one. They are offered regularly across the US. The eligibility requirements for the NRA Law Enforcement courses is pretty stringent.

    Here's a link the NRA LEAD website - http://le.nra.org/training/instructo...t-schools.aspx

    Feel free to PM me and I'll give you my cell number and will answer any more detailed questions you may have.

    Aviganis, Ken holds a firearms instructor cert from the FBI. That suffices the cerification reqs to apply for the K license, as would a military firearms instructor cert.

    The DOL instituted some changes to the requirements last year. I've heard of several former K instructors that had to go to the NRA LEO Course to renew because of the new continuing education requirements for K licensees.

    Already spoke with Hodawg on the phone earlier.

    "K"------->"G"----->"Certified LEO Instructor"------->"FBI Instructor"-------->"NRA Certified Law Enforcement instructor"------>FDLE CJST Certified instructor........

    Chrissakes, can't I just shoot the sonofa*****? I'm building a wraparound porch on my SC house, screening it in, and I'm gonna sit on it with a side by side 12 gauge and three fingers o' Jack and watch the birds and squirrels.
