Fingerprinting info

 

Fingerprinting for CCI thread

LiveScan Vendor Thread

 

Not all LiveScan vendors listed on some ISP lists are truly certified and operational right now.

Some vendors listed on the ISP lists only list the home office, while they may offer many finger printing locations.

 

Police departments are prohibited from civilian LiveScan fingerprinting unless they jump through additional hoops, so don't expect them to be able to do your CCW/CCI prints just because they have LiveScan capabilities for in house use.

 

Please refer to threads listed above for more information.

Instructor Approval

 

Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor Application Questions.

 

To figure out date for NRA certification, either contact NRA or back date from your expiration.

Take your expiration date and delete the number of years certified.

This only works if Basic Pistol was the first class you took, I can't use this method for any of the other classes I took after.

 

If no business name just the best answer i have heard is to put-

N/A and your home address (online form needs address)

 

Need address's of places lived at for the past 10 years (I used google maps to find an old house and read the address off of the mailbox, then checked the county tax assessor for verification).

 

When successfully submitted you will be returned to an 'Illinois concealed carry firearms instructor registration' page.

It took me a minute to see where it says

'Your Concealed Carry Instructor Approval Application has been submitted',

(Right at the top of the window) I thought it had crashed and dumped me back to a normal page. Anxiety I guess.

 

Fill out Approval signature form and get notarized.

Check your bank, many will notarize for free, otherwise my local currency exchange is only $1.

 

Make copy of you instructor credentials and mail in.

NRA Instructors can print out their certificates at

NRA Instructor Portal

Curriculum approval

 

Course requirements info- initial sections 1-5, do not just check the boxes.

 

You do NOT send in your curriculum, just the initialed form attesting that your curriculum meets the requirements.

 

 

Thread for questions on IL IL Concealed Carry Firearms Curriculum

 

Ok so I changed my mind and sent my curriculum approval app in.

If they change/correct things I will just update and send in again if I have to.

the only portion of the application i don't understand is the "request for approval of a conceal carry license firearms cirriculum"

 

are you guys initialing each and every training requirement 1-5 and the renewal 1-2 MAKING THE ASSUMPTION that the approval form is....in and of itself, a list of the requiremnets for which we have to provide to students?

 

In other words, why can't I initial each and every training requirement which will serve as an acknowledgement, that when i teach a course, I will address each of these as this list serves as a curriculum checklist?

 

those of you who have completed all of the application, what did you do here?

I have a totally different understanding of this requirement.

 

The ISP is going to list a registry of approved instructors.

 

They are going to list a registry of approved courses.

 

 

Mr./Mrs./Ms Instructor will choose a course from the approved list to instruct.

 

You only fill out the approved course form if you are submitting your own course.

 

We should know more after Todd talks with the ISP today. I would suggest waiting until we hear from him.

This is exactly how my co-trainer and I understood it...

 

Initial off each line, teach a class that covers all the topics for the prescribed amounts of time...

 

Or, wait for a commercially available, approved course, and buy it.

You can always send in your instructor paperwork now and then send in the curriculum paperwork at a later time.

I was referring to CLIC and classes like that that may surface in the future.

 

I mean, If I develop a course, and it is approved and listed on the ISP's website, it is still MY class and others will not be teaching it. Whereas, when CLIC in approved, there will be dozens of instructors teaching it.

I hear you - I just wonder if the ISP considered there would be dozens teaching the same playbook

Just added a few changes to the guide and info sections.

 

Biggest on is that the application and curriculum both go to the same address, but are addressed to different departments/sections.

So I wouldn't suggest using the same envelope for both, they might get to the right people, they might not.

I had the address in the guide wrong for the application.

Please correct me if i am wrong; but after review of the "Request for Approval of a Concealed Carry License Firearms Curriculum" it is my understanding that we will not be submitting any curriculum we are just verifying that the curriculum that we teach shall include the outline on the form - reason why we initial each line within the time frame noted. If our curriculum is ever noted not to meet this document {ie: student in court for whatever reason} we are subject to perjury. But no curriculum is to be submitted nor approved.

Correct, do not send in curriculum, just the initialed curriculum form.

But isn't this different than what MollyB said? Not being argumentative, mind you. I understand her to say we don't fill it out unless we are submitting our own curriculum. In her words:

You only fill out the approved course form if you are submitting your own course.

I have the curriculum form filled out and notarized and ready, and I put Basic Pistol and CLIC as the curriculum choices, and I checked all the boxes, but I am not mailing it in until/unless I get clearer instructions.
