HR 218 Retired LEO Firearms Course

CPTS is pleased to offer firearms qualifications for retired law enforcement officers. Retired law enforcement officers that have relocated to North Florida are provided the opportunity to conduct the HR 218 firearms qualification course. Retired federal law enforcement members who meet the HR 218 requirement can also qualify.

Our instructors are professional, certified instructors that will assist you through the qualification process. You are required to bring your own ammunition or you can purchase it from us. The course provides you the range time and targets required to qualify once and conduct one re-shoot, if necessary.

**The HR218 Course will take approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete**

 Retired LEO who participate must adhere to the following requirements:

  • Quick review of the basics
  • Photo identification issued by the agency that you retired from as a law enforcement officer
  • Adhere to all range rules and policies during qualification
  • Meet the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) Firearms Qualification Standard For Active Law Enforcement Officers
