Our CWP training course is unlike any you will see around here. We are not a CWP factory. We do not rush through training instead; we train to standards not to time! You will receive more than just classroom instruction. You will leave here feeling confident about your knowledge and your ability to safely carry your concealed weapon. If you are looking for a place to just rubber stamp your CWP than this is not your place to train or learn. This CWP Course meets and exceeds educational requirements to apply for a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit. A 50-question written multiple-choice exam will be given at the end of the class and a 50-round qualification course will be conducted on the range. Upon successfully completing this course, you will have all the required forms and fingerprint information for applying for a Concealed Weapons Permit in the State of South Carolina. You will also receive a Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals book value at $35.00. In addition, you will receive a course completion certificate as proof of training for further firearms training.
