About Us


Founded in 2013, Illinois Public Safety Training Group has grown to become one of the areas leading providers of concealed carry and self defense training programs. Our instructors are comprised of highly credentialed and heavily vetted professionals with law enforcement,  military,  fire and rescue, and civilian training backgrounds.  Each of these instructors have dedicated their lives to serving,  training and preparing our students  to prevail.


What sets us apart from other CCW classes?

IPST classes are built on the principals of immediate action/rapid deployment response to an active shooter or armed intruder incident as viewed by a civilian responder.  This is not a tactical operators class.  This course is designed to be an introduction to firearms, basic self defense and response to an immediate threat. 


Classroom instruction is a combination of PowerPoint presentation, video learning, hands on learning with a combination of SIRT Pistols, Simunition products and inert rounds so students are comfortable handling firearms well before our trip to the range.


Our presentation of the concealed carry act, use of force laws and the legal system is presented in a manner that any one can understand what you are legally allowed and not allowed to do under the act. (You wont need a legal dictionary to get though our law portion of the class.)


Our instructors, the method we deliver the curriculum and the training products that we use is what sets us apart from other CCW Classes.   While we deliver classes at some of the most affordable prices in the area, we will never sacrifice your safety.  All classroom activities are done with orange "dummy/training rounds"   RED SIRT pistols and BLUE/RED Simunition weapons to keep our classroom environment safe  while making sure you are prepared to move on the live fire session at the range.   During your live fire qualification, you will be with your instructor which is also Certified Range Safety Officer.


Range time for our classes are all closed events. This means that we secure the entire building or shooting area so that there are no public shooters in the building while we run qualifications.  This helps our staff control the environments in the area that we are shooting and ensure the safest range experience possible.
