Concealed Carry Training Class

Concealed weapons are weapons which are kept hidden on one's person, or under one's control not accessible to view.  Lawful practice of concealed carry in Virginia requires a Concealed Carry Permit, which requires the completion of an approved firearms safety course to prove handgun competency. We understand that it may be difficult for the average citizen to find training or classes that are inexpensive. For this reason, Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Orange County Parks & Recreation have partnered to offer concealed carry training classes at a minimum cost ($30/person) to Orange County Citizens and to those who work in Orange County. Participants must be 21 years of age or older and either be an Orange County, VA resident or work in Orange County, VA.  They must be eligible to possess a firearm and pass a background check to the satisfaction of the Sheriff’s Office. The training consists of education in the classroom to include safety, laws, shooting  fundamentals, storage, maintenance, and legal considerations. Students will also have to demonstrate safe weapon handling on the range, and must bring their own firearm and ammunition. Instructors are Sheriff’s Office staff and DCJS Certified Firearms Instructors.  For more information about concealed carry, visit: https://www.vsp.virginia.gov/Firearms_ResidentConcealed.shtm. This class has limited space available and may close before the deadline. The registration deadline (2 weeks prior to class date) is VERY STRICT, and all participants will be required to submit to background screening. Signups for this program will require notarization of some parts of registration packet, the OCPR office will notarize documents for registration in our programs at no charge, but please call ahead to verify notary availability.
