Upon successful completion of the course, paperwork will be submitted for students to receive their Illinois Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) Permit., which lasts for five years. Students may visit the Illinois State Police Firearms Services Bureau to learn more about the CCW permit process and to check the status of an application.
Students are expected to follow the trainer’s directions throughout the course. Any student who fails to follow the instructions or engages in unsafe behavior will be removed, and no refund will be issued.
Students will need to provide their own transportation to and from the gun range on that day of the course. They also should wear a baseball cap or another hat with a bill at the range. Eye and ear protection will be provided for students who do not have their own.
Instructors will inspect all firearms used in the course for proper function and maintenance. No student will be allowed to operate any firearm deemed unsafe by an instructor, range officer or armorer.
