We offer Massachusetts State Police approved training for those interested in obtaining their Massachusetts Class A license to Carry (LTC) or Firearm Identification Card (FID). Those seeking a Mass firearm license must show proof of this training prior to applying for their license. At the end of one session you will have your certificate.
The certification course we teach for Mass. firearm licensing certification is the National Rifle Association (NRA) Home Safety Course (LTC-007). This is the most popular course approved by the NRA and it is perfect for those with no experience with firearms as well as education for those who have experience. Men and women are both equally successful.
