With so many Illinois concealed carry classes to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which one is best for your specific needs. Let’s take a look at the advantages of smaller classrooms when it comes to getting trained and certified for your IL Concealed Carry permit.
A Better Learning Environment for CCW Permit Classes
It’s easy to get lost in the mix when you’re in a classroom that’s jammed to capacity. For one, you may end up sitting too far to hear your instructor, or be unable to see what’s being taught. With smaller class sizes, you have the luxury of being within close proximity of those training you on how to legally carry and use a firearm. Additionally, a smaller class will be conducted in more of a close-knit group setting, as opposed to large crowds of strangers. In the end, it presents a learning environment that will ultimately improve your ability to carry and use a gun responsibly.
More Interaction with CCW Instructors
We’ve attended classes where there were well over 100 students, and it came as no surprise that student/instructor interaction was limited, at best. When you attend a classroom that’s limited to no more than 15 students, the opportunity to ask your instructor questions is more readily available. In our classes, for example, we encourage students to get up, move around and approach us with any questions they may have.
The Ability to Retain More Information
It’s not by coincidence that some of the most pricey colleges and universities are also those with the smallest classes. Studies have even confirmed that people are more likely to remember more in small, interactive groups, as opposed to large assemblies where they’re being lectured or forced to stare at an overhead projector. Attending a smaller concealed carry class is one of the best ways to ensure that you retain, and are moreover able to quickly recall, the information and techniques you’ve been taught.
At Concealed Carry of Illinois, we strive to create a CCW training experience that is unlike anything in the Chicago area. Our classroom sizes are intentionally kept small to promote a strong learning environment; one where students never have to worry about asking a question, or being just another face in the crowd.
