ScotShot LLC - USCCA Certified Instructor - Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals (CCHDF).
This is a USCCA accredited and certificated course, and it runs over two days.

USCCA Certified Instructor training is designed for experienced, skilled shooters who are committed to passing on the correct approach to using a defensive handgun, to individuals who are motivated to seek firearms training. The course teaches Instructor Candidates the USCCA instruction method, with an emphasis on positive reinforcement and student development. USCCA CCHDF Instructors are encouraged to maintain a mentoring relationship with their students.

Upon achieving a passing grade in the final Instructor Candidate examination, and with the recommendation of the Training Counselor leading the course, candidates will be recommended to become Instructors. Certified Instructors will be able to teach these four USCCA courses:

  • USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals
  • USCCA Basics of Defensive Pistol
  • USCCA Concealed Carry Fundamentals
  • USCCA Home Defense
The course comprises an 6-8 hour online portion, and a two-day classroom and range portion.

To enter this course with ScotShot you must be an experienced handgun shooter and preferably have completed USCCA Basic Defensive Pistol as a student, or some other student-orientated handgun class. The class requires a minimum of five Instructor Candidates to run.

The first part of USCCA Instructor Certification is an online module. This familiarizes the Candidate with the CCHDF material, and prepares them for success in the classroom portion. Contact us. for details of how to register with USCCA for this portion.

USCCA Certified CCHDF Instructors are able to qualify students in the four classes shown above. They are also free to create their own curriculum using the USCCA material. Instructor Candidates use mock class presentations and teach-back exercises to demonstrate the skills necessary to teach the various aspects of the CCHDF student class, including safe gun handling, the will to prevail, situational awareness, how to use cover and concealment, how to summon and talk to police, how to "think like a prosecutor", how to claim your right to silence and the likely legal aftermath of use of lethal force in a life-protecting situation. On the range, Instructor Candidates learn how to set up the range for the USCCA course of fire, and tutor one another through this. We conclude the course with the Instructor Candidate examination.
