CCW Training Courses

This is the 16 hour CCW training course approved by the Orange County (OC) Sheriff’s Department prior to issuing a new applicant a Conceal Carry Weapons Permit.  The course is designed to teach the students the required training in firearm safety and the allowable use of a firearm in self defense. This class is offered in a low stress environment in both a classroom setting and on the range.

A certificate of completion will be given to students who successfully pass the written and practical tests (firearms qualification) given at the end of the class. Our instructors will do everything they can to help ensure our students pass the required tests.

Please do us both a favor and call for pricing. Pricing can vary from student to student. I try to set up my classes by beginner, intermediate and advanced and need to be able to speak with you in order to figure out what works best for you. If you request a price by email I will assume you are a beginner.
