Most Excellent IL Concealed Carry Course

Steve, Jake, and Allison all did a tremendous job of providing a lot of information in a very effective and encouraging manner. They were willing to answer any questions and walk through the content at a pace where I felt confident with the knowledge gained at the end of each section. I also had never owned or fired a handgun...ever.., and I felt very prepared for the range session, with corresponding success. If you have considered firearm training, no matter your experience level, CYA is the route to go. I have an entirely new and educated perspective now of firearms and the implications of owning and carrying as a result of this course. What a great experience and greater instructors!! Thanks!

Extremely Educational

I just completed my 16 hours CCL training course with Peter and Steve. The course was very educational and gave me, at least, a whole new perspective on my firearm, it's use and the responsibility that comes with it.
Both Pete and Steve were very patient and took their time in making certain that everyone understood the concepts and lessons being taught.
I would highly recommend CY Academy if you're considering the training required to obtain your CCL.

If you are like me, you are reading this review because you are shopping around to decide where to take your concealed carry class. You are probably focused primarily on cost, and searching for a location that is in close proximity to home... DON’T!!!

On the surface, you don’t realize that where you choose to get educated can become a life or death matter, and it is not something you should trust to just anyone.

For this reason, I strongly recommend that you choose Condition Yellow Academy. The CYA team provides quality content in a manner that keeps you locked in and engaged. All the while, delivering the content in a way that is easily understood. If you’re still on the fence. Phone them up like I did and ask questions. You will hear for yourself, and like me, you’ll be happy that you chose Condition Yellow Academy for your concealed carry.

My husband and i just finished the 16 hour course with Jake and Peter, who are excellent!! We are seniors (my husband is 80 yrs old) and they were very patient and took as much time as we need. We learned a lot and I would recommend this class to everybody especially seniors. Thank you Condition Yellow Academy.

Great class!! Instructors give you all the information you need to be a responsible CCW license holder. They also know tips and techniques on how to improve your skill at shooting your weapon. Very organized and made the whole experience quite simple! Their classed are well worth the time. AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I will definitely take more courses…

High Marks

Attended the weekend 16 hour training. I learned a lot even after having been an owner for years. I improved my knowledge and it showed at the range! The legal portion was a little frustrating, but thats the nature of the material. It was presented well and with enthusiasm. Super professional yet casual. Recommend this for any gun owner, whether or not going for the concealed carry.

The class was great! The instructors were both very knowledgeable and more than willing to answer any questions that we had and did a great job explaining everything,

by Nick Capotosto on Condition Yellow Academy

This past weekend my brother and I participated in the 16 hour Concealed Carry class (two 8 hour days)

The class went very smooth. It was easy to follow along with the instructors and they were open to the many questions asked, whether it was about operation of a firearm or down to the details of the many laws surrounding concealed carry. Steve, Jake, Peter, and Allison were all at the Arlington Heights location both days of class and were all fantastic to speak/work with. They do they’re jobs greatly with a smile on their face which sadly isn’t so common nowadays.
The overall experience was unbelievable and I will continue taking future classes with Condition Yellow. Highly recommend to everyone!
