Classes available through May
Triton College's School of Continuing
Education is offering a new course that is in response to the passing of the
Illinois law that allows for individuals to carry a concealed weapon. The
course will provide individuals with the education and training needed to apply
for the Concealed Carry License in Illinois.
Approved by the Illinois
State Police and the Illinois Community College Board, the course fulfills the
16-hour state requirement and will include lessons on basic firearm safety and
Illinois state and federal laws regarding the carry of a concealed handgun. The
course will also include an hour of training at a firing range in Lombard.
"Triton has a very strong criminal justice program and a long history of
training first responders, which will be leveraged to provide a high quality
CCW education for our district residents," said Paul Jensen, Dean of the School
of Continuing Education.
To enroll, students must have a Firearm Owners
Identification (FOID) card, which must be shown on the first day of class. The
course is $249. For class dates and times, visit www.triton.edu/CCW.
Triton also offers education and training in basic security and a 20-hour
firearms handling course.
