updated information from the FL Div of Licensing re; firearms training...
NOTE If you are a Florida resident or need a firearms training certificate to get a valid Florida G/firearms license(armed security/EP) or a W/concealed license, the DOACS/Div of Licensing will not allow copies of the training requirement certificate to be used. Only the white/original form will be processed.
Also note; the state Div of Licensing will now only approve/process firearm licenses with the revised form from 2011. Older forms & copies will not be allowed.
For details, see: www.mylicensesite.com . The mandates came down after a increase in fraud/waste/abuse by security training school instructors & security agency managers.
A few were arrested & there are a # of G/security officers who worked in the industry with invalid licenses.
FWIW, check any Florida K/firearms instructor out before you pay for any formal training or apply for any G/W licenses. Scams & misinformation are major problems in Florida.
edit There were a few SOP changes too. The Florida Div of Licensing now says you only need one re-qual for the .38spl, .380acp or 9x19mm(9mm Luger). If you fail to qualify you can shoot 2 more trys. That will save ammunition & $$$. This policy change was due to the increases in prices & problems finding ammuntion. See the July 2013 newsletter for full details.
PS; The Orlando Florida field office of the Div of Licensing moved too. It's no longer in the main office bldg in downtown Orlando. See the website for details.
Every 2nd matters.
