Course Approval Guarantee


The DOJ is one one of the methods to be a recognized instructor organization.  I have copies the statute relating to authorized instructor organizations and what is required to be taught.  The DOJ has to work within the statutory scheme passed by the legislature.  AACFI is covered as an instructor organization statutorily..  Those statues are highlighted.

(4) Training requirements. (a) The proof of training requirement under sub. (7) (e) may be met by any of the following:

1. A copy of a document, or an affidavit from an instructor or organization that conducted the course or program, that indicates the individual completed any of the following:

b. A firearms safety or training course that is conducted by a national or state organization that certifies firearms instructors. AACFI is both a state and national firearms instructor certification organizations.

c.

AACFI is private organization certifying firearms instructors.
