The Kansas Concealed Carry training course is required for all Kansas citizens who desire to apply for a Concealed Carry Handgun License. Participants must know how to safely handle a handgun to take this course.

The training will be offered on Oct. 2 and Dec. 4 from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. A $100 registration fee, which includes lunch, is required. Participants must provide their own firearm, 60 rounds of ammunition, and eye and ear protection.

This eight-hour, hands-on course covers the fundamentals of handgun operation. The $85 registration fee includes guns and ammo, and participants are encouraged to provide their own eye and ear protection.

Pre-registration and payment are required the Monday before each course to hold your spot. The classroom portion of the trainings is held on the GCCC campus in the JCVT building, followed by the practical portion at the shooting range.
