OCPR & OCSO Concealed Carry Training - CANCELLED

Saturday, September 18, 2021

Concealed weapons are weapons which are kept hidden on one's person, or under one's control not accessible to view. Lawful practice of concealed carry in Virginia requires a Concealed Carry Permit, which requires the completion of an approved firearms safety course to prove handgun competency. Participants must be 21 years of age or older and either be an Orange County, VA resident or work in Orange County, VA. They must be eligible to possess a firearm and pass a background check to the satisfaction of the Sheriff’s Office. The training consists of education in the classroom to include safety, laws, shooting fundamentals, storage, maintenance, and legal considerations. Students will also have to demonstrate safe weapon handling on the range, and must bring their own firearm and ammunition. Instructors are Sheriff’s Office staff and DCJS Certified Firearms Instructors.

Please Note: Completion of this training course DOES NOT grant a concealed carry permit. Participant must still apply for the permit through clerk of the circuit court of the county or city in which he or she resides. 

Participants must be 21 or older.  This class has limited space available and may close before the deadline. The registration deadline (2 weeks prior to class date) is VERY STRICT, and all participants will be required to submit to background screening. Signups for this program will require notarization of some parts of registration packet. The OCPR office will notarize documents for registration in our programs at no charge, but please call ahead to verify notary availability.
