Who Can Qualify

A retired officer residing in North Carolina may meet the State’s firearms qualification standards in one of two ways, as follows:

  1. The retired officer may qualify with the agency from which he/she retired. Under this scenario, the agency is responsible for providing documentation to the retired officer to verify their completion of the annual in‐service firearms training and qualification requirements. No documentation would have to be submitted to the Criminal Justice Standards Commission by the agency or the officer; or,
  2. The retired officer may go to a Commission certified law enforcement Specialized Firearms Instructor and complete the training and qualification and then apply to the Criminal Justice Standards Commission for certification under the new Retired Law Enforcement Officers Firearms Qualification Certification Program.

Only Commission certified Law Enforcement Specialized Firearms Instructors will be authorized to conduct training and qualification.

The initial certification fee for retired officers is $50.00 and an annual renewal fee of $25.00.
