Training policies

Our civilian training programs encompass a wide range of offerings, such as general safety and familiarization programs, private lessons, concealed carry certification (CPL) and advanced concealed carry courses. We also offer a series of defensive carbine and scoped rifle courses. 

At CMI, all of our advanced courses are focused on honing judgment in the use of deadly force and sharpening gun fighting skill sets. Our instructional staff use their vast knowledge base and law enforcement/military experiences to teach our students various skills and tactics relevant to real world deadly force encounters. CMI is the only training provider in the midwest where students have the opportunity to conduct live fire interactive training evolutions using our firearms training simulator where life sized scenarios play in-front of the student, who must then use the proper judgment (shoot / don't shoot decision) and then must be accurate in deadly force encounters using their own gun and their own live ammunition.

With the obvious exception of our CPL class, familiarization programs and certain private lessons, all students registering for any advanced firearms training must possess a valid CPL.
