Question Regarding Acceptable Training Documentation

Hi everyone - first time poster on here, and after reading through the forums for the past hour, I have not been able to find an answer to my specific question.

I am a TX CHL'd resident, but will soon be moving and thus will require a FL permit. I still have the carbon copy of my original shooting proficiency test and training course, and I was planning on making a copy of this document (which is signed by my instructor...etc).

My concern is: According to the language in the application instructions, It appears as though not only do I need this certificate, but I also need an original, signed affidavit from the instructor stating that I completed the course.

Do I need both, or will only a copy of my course certificate suffice? Thanks!

1. A photocopy of a certificate of completion of any of the courses or classes listed below. Do not send your original certificate
because it cannot be returned.
2. A copy of any document which shows completion of the course or class or evidences participation in firearms competition;
3. An affidavit from the instructor, school, club, organization, or group that conducted or taught the course or class attesting
to the completion of the course or class by the applicant below. Be sure to submit the original (notarized) affidavit
but make a copy for your records because it cannot be returned.
The photocopy of your training certificate must be clear and legible and include your name, the instructor’s name,
signature, and certification number. Please do not send the original certificate; it cannot be returned.

I think they mean if you can't produce your original certificate (copy), an affadavit from your instructor will be acceptable as a substitute, not that you need both.
