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, you will have the option at checkout to pay by credit card without creating a PayPal account. Please note that adding class options below will not update in the website shopping cart. Instead, you'll be directed to PayPal and you must click the "continue shopping" button to add more items before finalizing your purchase. The price below includes everything you'll need in class (targets, range fee, etc.) for qualifying up to 3 guns. You must provide your own ammunition. For both OC and Ventura County applicants who want to qualify more guns, you can add up to 2 additional guns for $20. In other words, $20 will cover a 4th and 5th gun, $40 will cover up to 6 or 7 guns, etc.
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 understand that sometimes things come up and your schedule changes. We're fairly flexible to allow you to make up portions of the day you missed or to reschedule all together, but please advise us within 24 hours of the class to be fair to those trying to get in on a waiting list. We also allow full cancellation and refund within 24 hours of purchasing. Beyond this time however, your purchase will be counted as credit toward a future class except in rare emergency situations. Please understand that we depend on dependable attendance in order to offer the low rates we do. We cannot issue refunds for classes purchased beyond 5 months due to PayPal's processing fees and changing operating costs.

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. If you're in the OC, be sure to start your renewal process no earlier than 3 months before your permit expiration because their online system will not accept your application any earlier than that. You may however take the class up to 6 months before your expiration date.
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 re-qualify their firearms at the range. We charge $95 for the course. This fee includes your targets and now also includes your range fee. We also don't charge anything extra for qualifying more than one gun (up to 3). For both OC and Ventura County applicants who want to add more guns, each additional gun is $20 each. As with the Initial CCW Course, we need at least 3 students registered to offer this course at $95. 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, typically you'll come in at 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM for a review of firearms safety, laws, and some tactics. You'll then meet up with us again at 5:30 PM or so at the range to qualify the guns you wanted listed on your permit. Notice that the times below may be listed for longer than 4 hours (ex. 1:30-8:00 PM). Because you'll be joining the regular CCW class for this option, you may 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 to get your required 4 hours. The OCSD also now requires that the 4 hours is 4 hours of class time (not including the range qualification) so your total time will be a little longer. If you don't see a date that works for you, please contact us for a private renewal class which costs $250 for one person (if done in one day and less if more people join).
