North-East Ohio CCW Training

Rick Kaleda - NRA Certified Instructor

Ohio Concealed Carry Classes

REGISTER NOW! NRA PERSONAL PROTECTION OUTSIDE THE HOME! SEE LINK ABOVE FOR DETAILS. This is the perfect course for the individual who wants to learn the skills needed to carry a firearm for defense. Students MUST first complete the Basic Pistol course and should have already obtained a license to carry.

Located just West of the Youngstown suburb of Austintown, easily accessed via the Ohio Turnpike or I76 we strive to provide an informative, thorough educational program that will meet all of the requirements of Ohios newly passed concealed carry law.

We respect that our students have made the decision to take the steps to protect themselves and their families and make every effort to accommodate each students needs and expectations while maintaining a competitive price point in our market.

Our classes are taught by a NRA certified instructor (Pistol, Personal Protection and Refuse To Be A Victim) as well as IDPA certified Safety Officer.  The chief instructor of this course is also the Mahoning County Coordinator for the Buckeye Firearms Association, as such has first hand experience working directly with the legislators in gaining passage of the law.  This allows our program to offer the most accurate, up-to-date information on important aspects of the new law as it is clarified by the Attorney Generals office and in the courts around the state.   

The following is a tentative list of dates classes may be held. Please contact us via e-mail if you are interested in attending any of these dates as interest will determine finalization.


NRA Basic Pistol/ Ohio CCW

Dates for Late October-November 2010 to be posted soon!

This will be a one day class starting at 8:00am.  Space is limited, pre-registration IS required.

NRA Personal Protection Outside the home (Advanced CCW)

Next class June 2010!

Due to the complexity of the range work done in this course, this course will only be offered during the warm weather months (May - September)  as we MUST utilize the outdoor range for this class.

Renewal of certification:

Thanks to changes made by S.B. 184 recertification is no longer required within 6 years of initial training but instead before renewing a license after the initial 6 year period of training has elapsed.  Recertification NO LONGER is required before the previous 6 year expiration, but instead only before the RENEWAL AFTER the 6 year expiration.  This will greatly simplify the training recertification process. 

Thanks to this we are suspending our plans to begin offering recertification beginning Fall 2008 as this will be much earlier than needed.  Those issued licenses "right out of the gate" in 2004 will not need to renew their certification until just before their 2013 renewal!

Please check back, as dates are finalized it will be denoted on this site.

If you are interested in any of these dates PLEASE LET US KNOW as classes are scheduled (or canceled) based on student interest!
