I just received my IDFPR Registered firearm instructor certification , I was a range instructor for IDOC , I am confused as to what I can actually do.
I was told it was good for recertifications of Law enforcement , Armed Security recertifications, is this correct?
What do I need to become a CCL instructor?

Thanks

Get a FCCL if you don’t already have one. Develop, purchase or borrow a conforming course of instruction, apply as an instructor with the state police and submit your course outline. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

The IDFPR is good for armed security but not for certification or recertification of Law Enforcement.

To certify LEOs you need a separate certificate from the ILETSB.
Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board.
The certification requires a 40 hour course. I think you need to be sponsored by a LE Department.

To teach the FCCL course you need an ISP certificate. Information can be found here : https://www.ispfsb.c...ublic/Cert.aspx

So yes, depending on who you want to train you need certificates from three state organizations. Only in Illinois .....

I have a range instructor certificate from the Illinois Law enforcement training and standards board already, got that when I worked for IDOC, it was a 40 hour course, would this be the same kind then?

That’s the one that will get you the FCCL certificate.
