Our California CCW Permit Training Courses are built around the NRA Home Personal Protection Outside The Home program. This program is recognized nationwide as the premier program for teaching Concealed Carry Weapon skills.

The California laws that pertain to Concealed Carry Weapons will be presented based on the materials covered in the most current version of the book: California Gun Laws – A guide to state and federal firearms regulations. This book will also be the basis of covering the Federal laws that pertain to Concealed Carry Weapons.

The primary learning objectives are as follows:

  • Each student must understand and demonstrate to the Instructor that they have adequate knowledge of handgun safety, including handling, disassembly, cleaning, assembly and storage.
  • Each student must understand and demonstrate to the Instructor adequate knowledge of the equipment and techniques to safely carry a concealed handgun, retain control of a concealed weapon and avoid unwarranted detection of weapons by the casual observer.
