Illinois Concealed Carry Firearms Training Course Information and Scheduling:


The Illinois State Police has approved previous training as credit toward the required 16 hours of training to apply for an Illinois Concealed Carry License (ILCCL). To view the Illinois State Police approved previous training click here. Some students will only need 8 hours, others may qualify for 12 hours and others will require the full 16 hours. Active duty or honorably discharged military veterans have been granted 8 hours of credit toward training with a valid DD-214 or proof of military service, included in your application. All students receiving credit must bring all credentials to class for verification by a certified instructor. Utah and Florida non-resident permit training that was taken as a combination class will only receive 4 hours of credit toward the required 16 hours of training. A permit is not proof of training. A certificate of training must be provided. Individuals who qualify for only 4 hours of credit must attend a 12 or 16 hour training class. Illinois State Law requires that all individuals, regardless of any credit given, must attend the second 8 hours of required training which includes State and Federal laws, firearms handling and proficiency test. A Certificate of Completion will be given to students that successfully complete the course, which needs to be submitted with an application to the Illinois State Police along with all proof of waivers (copies of DD-214 or other proof of certifications). The Illinois State Police began accepting online applications on January 5, 2014. A valid Illinois Firearms Owners Identification Card (FOID) is required to apply for the Illinois Concealed Carry Firearms License.
