FOR MORE DETAILS ON YOUR ISSUING AGENCY'S PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED CLASS HOURS, PLEASE GO TO THIS LINK 

* Special Note for Contra Costa Sheriff applicants.  Although, this 8 hr. class meets the requirement for the 8 hrs. of training, you will still have to qualify with the Sheriff at their range, using a holster and the course of fire is under time.   If you are new, and have not been professionally trained in the presentation of the holstered handgun, we strongly recommend that you enroll in our 16 hr. class instead.  Our 16 hr. class has a full day of shooting, all from the holster, and we practice the Sheriff's qualification.   
 

Remember, with all issuing authorities, you still have to pass a background check to be issued a CCW in California.  Failure to pass the background check will result in denial of your CCW application.  If you take the training prior to being approved, there are no refunds if you are denied.

As an added bonus, these classes include the approved training for the non-resident Utah, Arizona, Florida and Virginia!   Due to reciprocity agreements, these permits are recognized in 33 states outside of California.   Carry confidently in the following states:

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Applications and mailing envelopes for Utah and Arizona are provided at class.  Applications for Florida and Virginia can be found by clicking on these blue hyperlinks.  The Utah, Arizona, and Virginia non-resident permits are valid for five years, and the Florida permit is valid for seven years.  There is an application fee, paid to the respective issuing state, at the time of application.  They are value priced at $63.25 for Utah, $60 for Arizona, $100 for Virginia and $97 for Florida.

Fingerprinting services for the Utah and Arizona permits are available at the class for a modest fee of $25 per card.  If you want both Utah (needs 1 card) and Arizona (needs 2 cards), you will need to bring $75 cash.
