NLETC requirements ‐
You must be a qualified, retired law enforcement officer in good standing with your agency of previous employment.
2. You must have a photograph ID from the agency from which you retired, that identifies you as a retired officer in good standing.
3. You must have one other form of photograph ID to present with your retirement ID.
4. You must have a safe, functioning handgun that meets range standards. If qualifying at NLETC, you must have 380 caliber, 38 caliber, 357 caliber, 9mm, 10mm, 40 caliber and 45 caliber pistols or revolvers.
5. You must have 50 rounds of factory manufactured ammunition for each qualification round you shoot.

If qualifying at NLETC:
You must sign a waiver of liability TC‐038.
You must participate in a range safety class provided on the qualification day, prior to shooting.
There is a fifty dollar, ($50) fee for the handgun qualification to cover range expenses. It must be paid on the qualification day prior to shooting. Qualification fees will not be refunded.
Participants should have adequate ammunition to complete two qualification courses should the need arise to shoot the course twice. Any Nebraska Certified Firearms instructor can administer the qualification course.
Upon successful completion of the State handgun qualification course, complete the form TC‐004B and have the firearms instructor return it to NLETC. A card that states you have passed the Nebraska State handgun qualification will be issued and returned to the firearms instructor who will then sign the card and forward it on to the shooter. The card will be valid for one calendar year.
Information concerning the course of fire can be found in Rule and Regulation, Title 79, Chapter 11. The Operating Instruction covering this program is 50‐63.
