This 8-hour course is designed for beginning and experienced shooters to help you master the shooting skills and attitudes essential to the safe and efficient use of a concealed carry handgun, for your protection and for the protection of others. This course exceeds the requirements as set forth in Ohio’s CCW legislation. Everything you need to successfully complete the CCW course is provided for you: Guns, Ammunition, Targets, Eye and Ear protection, Books, Safety and Legal Brochures.

We are the only CCW training center in Ohio that provides you with a semi-auto pistol and a traditional revolver in the classroom to practice loading, unloading, making safe, and practicing the correct fundamentals to shoot accurately before you actually go to the range to shoot live ammunition. All classroom training is done with dummy ammunition so you will be at ease with the firearms when you go to the range to shoot the real thing.

In the classroom, students learn the following:

  • Safety rules and procedures
  • Handgun components and functioning
  • Ammunition basics and malfunctions
  • Parts and functioning of revolvers and semi-auto pistols
  • Shooting fundamentals (grip, stance, sight and trigger management)
  • Cleaning and safe storage
  • Legal aspects of Concealed Carry
  • Concealment options

On our range, students practice the following:

  • Range safety and marksmanship training
  • Marksmanship fundamentals, with appropriate coaching, using all of the following firearms:
    a. 38SPL/357 Magnum revolver
    b. 9MM semi-auto pistol
    c. 22 LR
  • Low-light Demonstration using:
    1. A tactical flashlight
    2. Night sights
    3. Laser sights

We offer two different class arrangements to fit your schedule. Both are priced at $124.95.

  • Monday and Tuesday from 6 PM to 10 PM. The class is split 4 hours each day.
  • Friday, Saturday, or Sunday from 8 AM to 4 PM. All 8 hours in one day. BRING LUNCH WITH YOU!

NOTE: Students are advised to bring something to eat to class with them, as we do not have a built-in lunch break; there will be time to eat, but not time to go somewhere to eat.

NOTE: Before registering for ANY CCW class, ask if they do their shooting inside or outside. Ask if their range is approved by the Ohio Peace Office Training Academy. Shooting in the rain or cold is difficult and uncomfortable at best, that is why we hold ALL our classes at our INDOOR range. See our FAQ Page for some helpful tips on CCW Training.
