Tier 1 / CCW

CCW Course

Our CCW class meets all Tulare County Sheriffs requirements and laws to certify you to apply for a Concealed Carry Weapon permit including the new law requiring live fire range training and qualifying shooting test.

We offer a two part class for first time applicants.  Class A is the classroom instruction and Class B is range time with live fire.  For renewals you are only required to attend and complete Class B - Range Time.

These classes are designed for both a first time shooter and an experienced shooter.
