I took the Women's Only CCW class. Ted and all the instructors were hands down amazing. I grew up around guns, have shot many guns, but handguns were very new to me and very intimidating. I took the class with only shooting my handgun once before, and left the class with the confidence and understanding of not only how to properly and safely use my firearm, but any firearm I come in contact with. I would highly recommend!

I was so nervous to take this CCW class, I didn’t grow up around guns. They weren’t a big part of my life until my husband and I got married. I’ve always been nervous around them. I was encouraged to take the Ladies Only CCW class. I cannot rant and rave enough about this class!! Ted and his team of amazing instructors did an OUTSTANDING job making me feel comfortable handling a firearm and gave me the confidence boost I needed. Thank you Ted and team for being SO fun and SO patient through this process!! I would HIGHLY recommend taking any class through Northern Firearms Instructions!!

The instructors were all very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I learned so much more then I expected i would in a 2 day class. While on the range every class member received personal attention. If you need a ccw or training this is the place to go. You won’t be disappointed

I took the Handgun Essentials class with Chuck Fields as my instructor. I’m so happy that I decided to take this class. He answers all of your questions and concerns. His expertise on firearms is unbelievable. I went in with very little knowledge and purchased a firearm for home protection last year. I now feel 100% comfortable with my firearm. He goes above and beyond to teach you not only the basics but so much more. I HIGHLY recommend this class to everyone. I now know how to safely operate a firearm. I will definitely be back for the CCW course!

I really enjoyed this class, I felt at ease and not like I had to prove anything. Mike is very passionate about teaching this class and works well with a large class to help everyone equally. I will definitely refer his class to friends and family.

What a wonderful experience. The Women's class was just the right thing for me. Mike and Ted put us at our ease with just the right mix of levity, anecdotal experiences, common sense and discussion of the laws relevant to the CCW instruction. They encouraged us to ask questions and made us all feel that our questions were good ones, which prompted really good discussion and reinforced our understanding. On the gun range Mike and Gary were very clear in their instructions for each exercise and always demonstrated for us what we were to do and why. They were observant and diligent in making sure we handled our guns in a safe manner and were so very patient and persistent in correcting our grip, stance, sighting and everything about handling and firing our guns. This was a transformative experience for me. I still have much to learn but I'm no longer afraid of the gun and I know I've found the right Team to guide me in developing my skill and confidence.

I have attend so many renewal courses over the decades. This was the best. In my training for counterintelligence, and as a police weapons trainer through the State of Illinois, I have not received or experienced better adherence to safety and instruction. Thank you Mike and Pete.

I believe the course was taught we great expertise and in a timely manner. Jeff showed great knowledge and patience in the class room and the range. He did everything in his power to keep us focused, informed, and safe. He took extra time with another student to ensure she was comfortable with her weapon. It showed to me that he really cares about his students and shooting. My gun had a round stuck in the barrel and Jeff quickly got help to get it taken care and get me back shooting. I would recommend this course to anyone. -Kyle
