Anyone offer a course locally to meet the Connecticut non-resident CCW training requirement?

I'm definitely interested in obtaining my CT CCW. :)

Thanks

You need a NY license first- after that, the NRA basic Pistol or I think even the (free) DEC course will work for CT non-res. Look up l the number for CT state police pistol division and ask for Rosie.

I already have NY and PA and DEC hunter's safety course does NOT meet the CT requirements.

The NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course satisfies the CT permit requirement. I went to Farmingdale for it and the instructor even notarized my paperwork for me. You can also get an FL permit with this course.

Thanks!
I'll take a look into it.

Connecticut requires a live fire exercise with at least 50 rounds.  When I took my class with G.O.A.L in Massachusetts, the instructor provided me with a course certificate and a letter stating that I had met the minumim required life fire exercise.

What are the minimum firearms training course requirements for pistol permit applicants?

You are required to complete a handgun safety course, which must consist of no less than the NRA's "Basic Pistol Course," prior to submitting the application. The NRA's "Home Firearms Safety Course" and "First Steps Pistol Orientation Program" are not approved courses.

Live fire is also required. Computer-generated programs, dry-fire, other simulated shooting tools, plastic bullets, air guns or any other alternatives are not acceptable. Students must fire a semi-automatic pistol or revolver. Any questions should be referred to the Special Licensing and Firearms Unit.

Once I have received a Local Permit, how do I apply for a State Permit
Live fire is required

When you file with the State Police as a non resident, it is for a State Permit not a local permit.
Waiting time is between 6 and 8 weeks. They pretty much hold to the time. Mine was 8 weeks to the day.
