Florida requires a copy of NRA basic live fire or LE qual/re qual to get a Non resident permit.Military LEO ID's are not acceptable.Florida statute  for a short time allowed just the hunters safety class to apply for a CCW from Florida.

When is this effective? According to their website, they still do. Granted, when was the last time a government agency kept their site 100% up to date?

The Utah course should still work either way.

I already completed the Utah course. So, it doesn't really matter to me. I was just wondering when this took effect as I was about to send in my Florida papers and prior, I had been going to send in my DD214.

I just checked the application training requirements and they are listed below:

So can we still get our florida with the Utah CCW?

I spoke with a Florida CCW rep about 3 weeks ago and they assured me that a DD214, NYS hunter safety course, Utah CFP course were acceptable as fulfilling their training requirement
I'm pretty sure if they were to change their policy it would be included in their application packets which I received last week. If I get a chance I'll try to call today and verify.

Thanks, BillSpider. I will probably send them both the DD214 and the training certificate from the Utah course a few weeks ago.

A friend who was interested to get a CCW from Florida said he no longer could use his NY hunters safety course as proof.He said he found this class out of PA the Philly area PDS Personal Defense Solutions.It's clearly has it stated on the PDS website that Florida statute no longer accepts hunter safety,Active Military/LE.Must have a certificate from an NRA instuctor with his name or certified LE instructor.
