Instructor: Mark Fisher is the founder of MLF Training. A native of Marion, IL, Mark is a certified NRA (National Rifle Association) Chief Range Safety Officer (CRSO) and a certified NRA Instructor in NRA Basic Pistol, NRA Personal Protection in the Home, and NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home. He is also an IL-approved Concealed Carry Instructor, so he is certified to administer the required second eight hours of training mandated by the state of IL in order to receive an IL FCCA (Firearms Concealed Carry Act) concealed carry license.
Mark recently became an I.C.E. Training Defensive Firearm Coach (DFC), and is now certified to teach their Fundamentals of Home Defense Handguns Course and their Fundamentals of Concealed Carry Course.
Mark is husband to Sheila, owner of Samson’s Secret Hair Salon in Marion (this is where some of the classroom portions of MLF Training presently take place). They have two children, Ryan Fisher and Sara Morrison, and a son-in-law, Dustin Morrison. Mark is an ordained minister and has been involved in bi-vocational professional church ministry for many years, specializing in music/worship ministry. He is presently on staff at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Marion. His main employment is with Melco Insulation in Marion as a commercial insulator, and he is looking forward to retiring from this job in less than two years to be able to spend more time with his “fun” jobs, pistol instruction and guitar instruction.
