SPRINGFIELD, Ill -- More than 300 people who thought they were on track for concealed carry permits in Illinois will have to start over.

State police said Tuesday a firearms instructor form Bolingbrook is no longer approved to teach classes.

An investigation found the instructor was issuing certificates to people who had not finished the mandated 16 hours of training.

Two other instructors were relieved of their duties last month for the same offense.

Students who took classes with this teacher will be notified by mail. They will be able to retake the class for free with a different instructor.
