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,

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!

Thumbs up

I recent took a ccw class, and I learned alot more than I thought I would. The instructors were great, they answered questions thoroughly and clearly. Sometimes even more than once. The staff are very friendly, not pushy, always willing to help and answer questions. I would highly recommend this course to everyone, as im sure I'll be taking more.

Real Deal

Late on the review but Steve and Brian run an excellent concealed carry program. Very knowledgeable and skilled professionals at work here. Would recommend for any firearms training, general information or purchasing. This IS the right place.

Terrific Experience

I just completed my CCW class at CYA. I had been looking at other training programs and was glad when I found one so close to me. The facility is very nice and extremely convenient. I began by ordering a new firearm on-line and used CYA as an FFL. The process was so simple and efficient that I could not have been happier. MY CCW class was offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings over a two week period. This was perfect for me as I work weekends. Again I really found their flexibility to work well for me. Pete was my instructor and did a marvelous job of teaching and positioning the issues so that we could really think and explore our individual positions. I have been shooting for over 35 years, but learned so much and corrected some bad habits. I do feel well prepared now and plan to return to CYA for additional advanced courses.
