I think most of the instructors are gearing up for this and I taught one class. The deal is there is almost noway to cover what they say you need to cover in that time frame.
From the new 3hr CCL cert:
1) Two hours to cover:
A) any updates to Illinois or federal firearms laws governing concealed carry in Illinois;
updates in the Criminal Code Sections listed in Section 1231.10; and
C) appropriate and lawful interaction with law enforcement while transporting or carrying a concealed firearm; and
2) One hour of instruction to include a live fire qualification with a concealable firearm using a B-27 silhouette target consisting of a minimum of 30 rounds and 10 rounds from a distance of 5 yards, 10 rounds from a distance of 7 yards and 10 rounds from a distance of 10 yards.
f) The Department may request a complete course outline and instructional notes or any additional course related information from the applicant. If the applicant refuses the request, the application will be deemed incomplete and returned to the applicant.
g) Once approved by the Department, the curriculum may only be taught by an Instructor approved by the Department under Section 1231.20 who is listed on the registry of approved Instructors.
h) Upon receiving substantiated information that a curriculum is not consistent with Section 75 of the Act, the Department may remove that curriculum from the list of approved curriculums maintained on the Department's website.
i) Once a curriculum is removed from the list of approved curricula, the decision to remove the curriculum from the list may be appealed to the Director of the Department and evidence must be presented that the factors resulting in the revocation have been resolved. If the Director determines that the removal of the curriculum from the list was not warranted, or that the issues that resulted in that removal have been remediated, the curriculum approval shall be reinstated to the list.
Now that is doable in 3hrs, the first, is not. heck, all applicable Fed State FOID and those portions of the ICCA will take more than that without range time.
