Illinois Concealed Carry Firearms Training 12 Hour Course

Illinois Concealed Carry Firearms Training

8 Hour Course

Illinois Concealed Carry Firearms Training 16 Hour Course

HG Firearms Training is committed to provide our students with the best possible training while complying with all Illinois State Laws and provisions.

In an effort to accomplish this goal we are currently evaluating the process to provide 12 hour courses

Currently, we suggest that students with 4 hours of credit from prior approved training attend a 16 hour class.

Students attending the 16 hour training will know that they have meet all of the requirements to apply for their Illinois Concealed Carry License and no responsible gun owner can honestly say that they have ever had enough training.

If you have questions about our current position on our 12 hour course please contact us at info@hgfirearmstraining.com



This course is for students that have completed prior training that has been approved by the Illinois State Police.  Click Here for a list of approved prior training.  If you have completed a combined total of 8 hours of previous training listed on the Illinois State Police approved prior training list, you can attend the 8 hour course.  Copies of Training Certificates are required to be presented to the Instructor at the class.  State CCW Permits and Licenses are not accepted as proof of training.

Military Veterans, Active Duty and Retired Military may have the first 8 hours of training waived and only be required to complete the second 8 hours of training, if they can provide proof of service.  Current Military personnel will need to provide documentation identifying the holder as an active member of the US Armed Forces (CAC or DD Form 2 ID cards in green, blue or red, for instance).  Veterans will need to provide a copy of their DD-214 or NGB 22.  A copy of the DD-214 or NGB 22 or Current ID is required to be presented to the Instructor at class.
