Free Training for Teachers

The VSSA Training Team offers free NRA certified pistol training to any teacher in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This training meets all the requirements for a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) in Virginia. You can come to us in Fairfax, or we can set something up with a local range. All we need is access to a range and a classroom, everything else will be provided. Contact our training team lead, Tom Ciarula at Tom-C @ to make arrangements.

First, thank you for making this offer to train school teachers.

However, there is no such thing as a "CCW" in Virginia. Virginia issues Concealed Handgun Permits, CHPs. The code of Virginia specifically does not include other types of "weapons" with the permit to carry a concealed handgun.

Just a thought: If you want to come across as having proper credentials for the services you offer, it might be more convincing if you accurately state what it is you are providing training for.

Thank you for bringing that mistake to my attention. It has been corrected. We are well aware that Virginia issues Concealed Handgun Permits (CHP) and not Concealed Weapons Permits (CCW) It was an editing error on my part as I posted from my phone what our training coordinator sent me by email as I am on vacation. Some people tend to use the terms interchangably and apparently Tom did so in his email and I did not catch it. I'm sure however that most people knew what was intended.

Thanks! I guess some see asking for such corrections as overly anal, but as we all know, language is extremely important in the RKBA struggle, so I'm in the camp that views it as worth taking the time to correct. :-)
