INITIAL CCW COURSE (applying for the first time)
Because of the highly discounted price, materials preparation, and demand, we cannot accept walk-ins at the door. If you prefer not to pay by PayPal, please call us and we can take your credit card over the phone or arrange another method of payment, but be aware that PayPal does allow you the option to pay by credit card without creating a PayPal account at checkout.
We teach in both Santa Ana and Ventura as our classes are recognized as approved training for both county sheriffs. We invite you to join us at either location no matter the county where you reside because the class will be accepted in both. Please contact us if you have questions as to where in each county the class will take place. Otherwise, you may not receive an email with final details of the classroom location and instructions until a day or two before class because we use a few different locations depending on the class size. You will however receive an email by the night before the course date.
*We've reduced our rates to $160 because the accelerated class is now taught on one full Saturday. Because of the reduced rates, we must have at least 3 students signed up or the class date may be postponed. To date this has never happened, but we will advise you if this appears to be the case the week of the class.

CALIFORNIA CCW RENEWAL CLASSES
(class required every 2 years)
The California DOJ requires that CCW licensees renew their permits every 2 years. A 4 hour CCW renewal training is required as part of that process. Our course is accepted by Ventura and Orange Counties as approved training. Be sure to start your renewal process with the sheriff at least 3 months before your permit expiration. You may also take the class before you receive final approval to renew.
The first 3 hours of the class consist of a review of firearm safety, laws, and practical applications. In the last hour, applicants will complete a live fire course to requalify their firearms at the range. We charge $75 for the course. This fee includes your targets. but not your range fee because we often use the public side of the range for renewals. We also don't charge anything extra for qualifying more than one gun (up to 3). For Ventura County applicants who want to add up to 5 guns, the 4th and 5th gun are $20 each. As with the Initial CCW Course, we need at least 3 students registered to offer this course at $75. We will advise you if it your course appears as if it will not have enough registered, but this would be a very rare occurrence. Register for renewal classes below
Upcoming Renewal Classes
We now have two options for renewals. You can take one of our 4 hour classes dedicated only to renewal applicants or you can join one of our regular initial CCW classes. Instead of staying the whole day with our regular class, you'll come in at 1:30 PM until 4:30 PM for a review of firearms safety, laws, and some tactics. You'll then meet up with us again at 6:00 PM at the range to qualify the guns you wanted listed on your permit. Notice that the times below are listed for 1:30-8:00 PM. Because you'll be joining the regular CCW class for this option, you'll have a break before the range, but will still need to plan on blocking out that part of the day to accomplish the classroom and range portion.
Starting April 1st, renewal applicants will also have to pay their own range fee of $20. Unfortunately, our low rate of $75 for CCW renewals can no longer sustain us covering the recent increases in range fees.
