Spoon River College is offering a concealed-carry training in a classroom setting. Partnering with Western Illinois Tactical, the program will be offered at college’s Community Outreach Center throughout the month of March.

“The class is actually approved through Spoon River and it counts as a college credit,” said Lindsey May, Macomb Police officer and owner of Western Illinois Tactical. “It just provides a professional atmosphere for the training. The reason we partnered with them is we hope it gives people peace of mind.”

The class will satisfy all 16 hours required to apply for a concealed-carry permit from the state, including the live firing portion of the course that will be held out on Western Illinois Tactical’s range.

The full course cost is $250. The entire 16 hours can be taken, while a shorter eight-hour class for those with the proper exemption — ex-military, law enforcement, those that have taken hunting firearms safety courses — will only cost $150.

According to Velvet Powell, director of the Community Outreach Center, those wishing to attend the class should do so through Western Illinois Tactical. The college credit received through the class is non-transferable.
