Louisiana has a state-mandated training course for most people applying for a concealed handgun permit. By law, this training is required to be at least 9 hours. Our 10-hour Introduction to Concealed Carry and Permit Certification course gives you the certification needed to apply for, or renew, a concealed handgun permit in Louisiana, a concealed weapon permit (CCW) in Florida, or for the enhanced permit in Mississippi. If you are a resident of Louisiana, you need a LA CHP to conceal carry a handgun here. With a LA concealed carry permit, you are authorized to carry a handgun concealed in 38 states.
We offer this course in both the traditional in-person format, as well as an online e-learning concealed carry certification course. With the online course, you can take the course on your own time and at your own pace through video lessons. After completing the online CHP course, you are then eligible to come out in person for the shooting qualification to complete your certification. The shooting requirement can be completed with Bearco Training, or soon with other designated LA certified instructors throughout the state.
We have a free online course available to help you through the application process.
