The CCH class with Irwin absolutely blew my expectations out of the water and I could not recommend it enough! Yes, an 8-hour class during the week/on the weekend sounds daunting, but the deep passion and extensive knowledge that Irwin brings is unsurmountable. The content is very engaging and you will undoubtfully walk out of those 8-hours feeling proud, informed, empowered, and eager to continue your education and training. Every single person, whether interested in actually carrying or not, would highly benefit from this class.
Solid class with top notch instructor that takes the time to answer all your questions. Facility is perfectly set up, clean and easy to find. Class time went by quickly because of the interesting videos and instruction. Highly recommend Irwin Carmichael concealed carry training class to anyone looking to learn from the best around!
This CCH course was, far and away, a greater value than I was anticipating! From signing up to signing my certificate, the staff, presentation, course and instructor were/are second to none. Sheriff Carmichael's vast knowledge of the profession is evident though out the day as you go through the course. All you have to do is take it all in. His presentation, power point and videos were awesome. His teachings and facts were immediately validated by a "real life" happening or event. He left nothing unchecked.
I will return for the advanced class.
