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!

I took the weekend class recently with a friend, and we both are so glad that we did! Instructors are super knowledgeable and the class is very thorough. I learned so much and I feel prepared. Everyone was very welcoming, too. Overall just a great experience.
Very very knowledgeable staff took the 16 hours course and picked up a lot more than my armed guard class and his staff were very helpful in helping me in find tuning skills in shooting, thanks a lot guys
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.
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.
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.
Condition Yellow Academy Best CCL Class you can take! Attended the class 8th and 9th of September 2018. Brian promptly responds to questions or issues while teaching the class. Highly recommend this class to everyone looking to obtain their permit. Can’t forget Missy and Peter as part of the training staff as they were pivotal in helping things run smoothly as well. Absolutely a great class with knowledgeable instructors and practical drills. Great shooting techniques, scenarios , knowledgable, and most of all a great and fun learning experience.
I took the CCW renewal course at the end of August and really enjoyed it. Brian was the instructor and he made me feel very welcome and comfortable. He stresses common sense for anyone who carries concealed. I am a fairly experienced shooter and realize that I don't know everything, he had the answers to any of the questions I asked. Even with my shooting experience I picked up plenty of information that I missed on the initial CCW class at a different training organization. It is a review class and had the right balance between what the state requires in it and firearm safety. It is always a good thing to review firearm safety and was very well done for people who may have been first time shooters when they got their initial CCW training and for shooters who have been shooting for decades. Brian provided just enough in the way of pertinent anecdotes to explain some of the twists and turns in the law. He was able to easily keep my attention and keep the presentation interesting. He also provided some tips on what we have learned since the CCW law was first approved. It was a Saturday morning very well spent. I recommend the course for those who will be renewing their CCW license.
