The only way to get a UT CCW instructor License is to take the UT Instructor class in UT.

Well you can now take the class in Oakbrook.

Here is the link

http://www.usibureau...tor-course.html

Cost is $375 which is a heck of lot cheaper than going to UT.

I am not in anyway affiliated with this company. I am registered to take this class.

Thank you

Interested in this also, however has anyone checked with BCI Utah that this is in fact valid? Just checking here first before calling them myself.

This is definitely valid and a rare opportunity. USI has some very talented staff and are seem to be very astute at drawing courses to their facility that are otherwise difficult to find. The range development is also coming along quite nicely.

If you are looking for a UT instructor credential, you will not find a better deal.

How many years are the Utah credentials good for, and what is the renewal cost?

So then it's off to Utah to get them renewed unless they come back to Oakbrook or somewhere else. How do you become a Utah instructor's instructor?

I can see taking the class at that price for the original license, but looking at the website it seems that the reneal would cost the same and cover the same material. Renewing should be easier, IMO.

Even if you go to Utah, the original class and the renewal class are the same class with the same price.

I guess the first class would pay for itself.

But the "in Utah" class prices are a lot cheaper than Chicago's Class prices (by ten fold). This is of course disregarding the travel/lodging/meals cost of physically going to Utah for a few hours.
