In-Person CCW Course
Our In-Person CCW Course is perfect for those of you who want a live instructor that can answer questions in real time (we still answer questions for our online course), as well as those who want to complete the class over 1 or 2 days. Once you complete the in-person training, you'll also schedule your range qualification with an Elite instructor.Course Info
Online CCW Course
Obtain your OC CCW permit on your time, from any internet-enabled device you wish. All you have to do after completing the online version is schedule your Range Qualification with one of our instructors at Elite. This is a great option for the busier people, or those who prefer to learn and review the content at their own pace.Course Info
Your CCW permit is not permanent, so you'll be required to take an abbreviated renewal course in order to maintain your permit after it expires. We offer a 4-Hour Renewal course that meets and exceeds the required criteria from Orange County in order to remain an active and legal permit holder. You'll need to requalify with your firearms.Course Info
Orange county is a "may issue" county in the state of California. This means that you'll need to have a good cause and reason for applying for your permit. This can be anything that puts you more at risk than the average individual, but many people tend to be intimidated by the application. We offer 1-on-1 consultations to help you fill out your application and answer any questions or concerns you may have.Course Info
Our Fountain Valley facility has a state-of-the-art simulator for safely training and becoming used to accurately aiming and firing a gun. We use realistic firearm trainers that use compressed air and a laser to simulate the real feel and function of a firearm you'd carry in person. Being able to train in a controlled environment can both save on ammunition costs and give you a personal trainer to assist you directly.Course Info
Firearm Safety Cert.
Before you purchase a firearm in the State of California, you'll need to pass an exam and obtain your Firearm Safety Certificate, also known commonly as an FSC. You'll need to complete a multiple choice test that goes over the basic firearm fundamentals that all gunowners need to know before becoming a responsible owner. The study guide is widely available online and you can take the test with us.Course Info
