CCW PERMIT (VENTURA COUNTY)
The Covered 6 Carrying Concealed Weapon (CCW) training course is required by the Ventura County Sheriff Department in order to obtain a CCW in Ventura County, California. Students will learn the required training in firearm safety and the law of the permissible use of a firearm. We also cover drawing from a concealed holster, weapon selection, Use of Force Options, Force Option Simulator and much more.
Our class is taught by instructors who are former law enforcement professionals and subject matter experts. Carrying a firearm in the public has great responsibility. Ensure that your instructor providing the training is vetted and they have the experience to give you the best expert advice.
California Penal Code section 12050pc limits the training of new applicants to 16 hours, but requires a minimum of 4 hours refresher for renewals. A certificate will be issued to students who demonstrate the knowledge and proficiency required by the practical test and the written test. The written test requires a passing grade of 80%.
