This is an “Online Classroom” CCW class, also referred to as “Blending Learning”, for those needing to fulfill the renewal training requirement for a California Concealed Firearm Permit Renewal. The Blended Learning option allows CCW renewal applicants to take nearly all of the required classroom training online and is approved by Orange and Ventura Counties and some city police departments within Los Angeles. Unfortunately however, at this time the online format is NOT approved by the Los Angeles County or San Diego County Sheriff’s Departments. If you are applying for your renewal through the L.A. or San Diego Sheriff’s Departments, do NOT register for this version of the class. We are approved to teach the course for L.A. and San Diego, but the instruction must be done in-person. Consequently, please look to see if a public “in-person” class is scheduled. We are also available to schedule a private “in-person” class for renewal applicants to any of the aforementioned counties.
The CCW renewal curriculum is divided into 6 online modules and a few quizzes. After completing the online training, you’ll join us at the range on the date you’ve chosen (details can be found below). We’ll have time for some Q & A to clarify any content from the online course and then you’ll complete the live fire requalification with the guns you’re listing on your permit and we’ll sign your course certificate (Ventura County applicants must also retake the written test). Note that you must qualify all of the guns you’re listing on your permit, even if you had qualified them before when you took your initial CCW class.
There are several advantages to taking your CCW class in the Blended Learning format. Even though we need you to commit to a specific range day, you can watch the online training videos at your own convenience and from the comfort of your home. The only constraint is that you must have the online training completed before coming to the range date.
Another advantage to online training is that we’ve included a Bonus Section of several videos available for you to watch at no additional cost. These sections were originally part of our full day classes before we streamlined the course. While we feel that this additional material addresses very important CCW concepts, this section is not mandatory to view. The core 6 modules that you are required to watch meets the mandatory 4 hour curriculum required by California law for your renewal.
The basic details are found by clicking on the “Class Details” tab to the side of this box. Please read ALL of the tabs regarding what to expect from class, what to bring, and the terms for cancellation or rescheduling.
Also, please carefully read the options for adding the optional “multi-state CCW” qualification and for the optional fingerprinting as it can be somewhat confusing if you select the options without reading them first. If you took your initial CCW class with us and did your UT, AZ, and or FL licenses at that time, check your expiration dates on those permits because they are valid for 5-7 years (much longer than California’s 2-year permit). Additionally, there is no requirement to take a renewal class for those permits as long as you keep the license current by submitting a renewal application with your fees via mail or online.
If you’re interested in an online California CCW renewal class with a private qualification, please do not sign up here. Go back to the course page and register for this private option for $235. There’s an extra surcharge for travel time and fuel if you’d like us to travel to a range near you in Los Angeles, Ventura, or San Diego Counties. Scheduling is generally flexible on weekdays.
Finally, if you would like the option of a private, full “in-person” option and not do any of the classroom online, the rate is $350 for one person. If you’re doing the renewal as part of a private group, the cost goes down with each person you add. In either case, please contact us to set up private a one-day fully “in-person” class. The classroom portion can be taught at your home or office or at our classroom in Huntington Beach.
