Louisiana has a state-mandated training course for most people applying for a concealed handgun permit. This training is required by law to be at least 9 hours, and is split between classroom information and a range qualification. Our hybrid, e-learning exceeds the requirements in Louisiana to apply for the Concealed Handgun Permit.
The online portion of the course allows you to view the material on your own time, and most importantly, at your own pace. All lessons and quizzes can be completed at the same time, or in smaller blocks if preferred. This can allow for a higher retention of the information. After completing the course, you will also have access to the material for up to 2 years so that you can go back and view the material again.
The e-learning purchase fee and registration includes the classroom information only. After completing the online material, you will get access to register for the range qualification. This is usually completed in 1-2 hours. For your convenience, we have both weekday and weekend options available for the shooting qualifications. The shooting qualification fee with us is $35, which also includes the range fee. Both the e-learning and shooting qualification are needed in order to receive a completed certificate to apply for the Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit.
If you are not local to us, we have partnered with other ranges and instructors to make the process as seamless as possible for you. We currently have qualification locations arranged in these cities, but are adding more quickly.
We have locations in the Shreveport, Monroe, Ruston, Lafayette, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Covington, Kiln (MS) areas. We will have the map back online shortly. Thank you for the patience.
The course is limited to a single person per email address. The course includes a certification, therefore each person must complete the course as an individual for time tracking and certificate purposes.
If you would prefer a traditional in-person course, then we have available options on the website at https://bearcotraining.com/events/.
87 reviews for LA Concealed Handgun Permit – Online Certification
This is a great service that Bearco provides. The class is convenient with a well thought out user interface. The course features in depth teaching and experience from the owner. After completing the course I was more comfortable with my knowledge base than previously.
For me the advantages of the online course were many, but one highlight I will point out is the online course stays on topic and allows the instructor to cover the materials required without being sidetracked by classroom interference. There were no distractions or anecdotes from class members to interfere with your personal learning experience and your time. All the materials were covered and no section is rushed due to time constraints placed on the instructor by multiple interruptions from the class.
I would like to thank Barret for a great product and service provided. He came highly recommended as a professional in his field and the class shows his commitment and knowledge and to his trade.
On the range, in the classroom and in the online videos Barret demonstrates professionalism at its highest level. If you’re considering getting a concealed handgun permit in Louisiana (or any other state in which he is a certified instructor) this is the guy to go to.
The online program was thorough and well done. Was able to complete it in 24 hours and get on the range in the same week. Thanks!
Exactly what I was looking for. Perfect for folks that can’t attend night or weekend classes.
For anyone needing to do a concealed carry course, this is a great option. Very professional!
