Concealed Carry Classes
HPi Certified Training Academy offers fun, interactive one of a kind Concealed Carry Classes! These classes are also known as concealed weapons carry classes, concealed handgun carry permits classes, CHP, CCW or concealed carry weapons.
Taught by one of our NRA-certified instructors, our Concealed Carry Classes meet and exceeds the requirements to apply for a Virginia Resident Concealed Handgun Permit. This permit is recognized in 35 states. (Please Note: You must be 21 or older to apply for a permit. Minors 12 and over may participate in this class for gun safety/hunting purposes.) This course is also the gun safety class which fulfills the requirements of the courts. The only thing you will need to bring is your photo I.D. and we will provide the rest!
This NRA-approved class will cover the following;
-Understanding pistol parts and operation
-Choosing the best firearm for you
-Laws surrounding concealed carry, where you can and cannot carry your firearm
-Virginia laws on self-defense and the use of deadly force.
-Continued opportunities for skill development. (Check out our other firearms classes in the course catalog!)
For quick, to-the-point instruction, we recommend the basic 2.5-hour course offered on weekday evenings (6-8:30pm). If you are a beginner, and want a more in-depth, hands-on approach, then we recommend you register for the 4-hour extended class which is held on Saturdays (9-1pm). The extended class provides additional time to help the beginner feel more comfortable which will allow you to emerge confident and ready to take on the responsibility of gun ownership. Both courses cover all the same content. We also highly recommend our Beginner Handgun Class for some hands on training. All skill levels are welcome to attend either concealed carry class and the cost is the same for both classes ($75).
IMPORTANT: At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate to present at the courthouse to apply for your Concealed Carry permit. To avoid a $10.00 certificate reprinting fee, please use your full legal name as it appears on your driver's license when registering for this class. No live ammunition is permitted in the classroom.
