Default Training requirement for CCW

First off, I'm new here, so forgive me if I ask questions that seem very basic.

Also, I'm not sure if the training requirement for CCWs is the same in every county (if they are different, the Lyon County rules apply to me).

With those two disclaimers, here is my question:

If I am an NRA handgun safety instructor, do I still need to take a course from another instructor or training counselor to meet this requirement?

Is a basic handgun course sufficient, or does it have to be a specialized CCW course?

Can I qualify with multiple handguns in one course?

Since it's Sunday, I thought I'd ask here, even though I can probably call and ask someone at the LCSO during the regular work week.

State wide requirement and standard.

Has to be a class that issues a CCW certificate upon completion.

You can not certify yourself.

Certify with any gun, you can carry whatever you want. Don't need to qualify with any special. THERE WAS a limit, semi or revolver, but it went away several years ago. It is not gun specific.

The Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs Association (NVSCA) establishes the minimum training standards required for the issue and renewal of carry concealed handgun permits (CCW) and the minimum standards required to become an instructor for concealed handgun permits.

You must take the course from an instructor recognized by the sheriff of the county you reside in.

These requirements were last updated as of 10/1/2013.

I have attached the document "NEVADA CONCEALED HANDGUN TRAINING STANDARDS Revised October 1, 2013 by the NVSCA" to this post

Ken

p.s.; These standards are the minimum. An instructor can require more.

Actually, you can take the course from any instructor recognized by the sheriff of any county in Nevada.

That is supposed to be true however LVMPD used to (and may still, not sure) refuse paperwork from anyone not in Clark County and on their approved list.

p.s.; From lvmpd web sight:

Quote:
Any person who meets the following criteria may apply to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for a concealed firearm permit:

•If you are a Nevada resident, you must be a resident of Clark County.
•An out-of-state resident who received firearms training in Clark County.
•21 years of age or older.
•Must be able to lawfully possess a firearm.
Successfully completes an approved firearms course in Clark County (paid for by applicant).
Emphasis added.

,

My dad, wife, and I took it from a local LEO here in Dayton. I paid and signed up for it at the Pawn Shop.

Not a great course, but it covered the basics and met the requirements.
