Your issuing Police or Sheriff’s Department requires that all new CCW applicants attend and pass a CCW training course. The curriculum for that course must include lessons on gun safety, permissible use of gun laws, a written exam and a shooting proficiency exam. Our class not only meets but exceeds the curriculum requirements set by your issuing county. As with all our courses, classes will be kept to a small number of students in order to maintain a safe and fun learning environment.
This California CCW 16-hour initial issue class is recognized by Sacramento, San Joaquin, Placer, El Dorado counties. This class includes qualifying with up to 3 handguns. Most departments limit your permit to 3 guns.
At the end of the course you will be issued a certificate of completion. This certificate does not guarantee you a CCW permit. The decision to grant a CCW permit will be ultimately determined by the Police or Sheriff’s Department that you applied with.
IMPORTANT: Once registered for this class, please e-mail the following information for your certificate:
1. Your name exactly as you want it to appear on your certificate.
2. Make, model, caliber and serial number(s) of each handgun(s) you intend to qualify with.
