According to a statement on the college’s website, the 18-hour class covers all elements of state-required training, including basic principles of marksmanship; care, cleaning, loading and unloading of a concealable firearm; firearm safety; state and federal laws relating to ownership, storage, carry and transport of a firearm; and weapon and handling and legal qualification.
Students also receive hands-on training via the state-of-the-art concealed carry firearm simulator and the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES), which is inside a four-dimensional immersion “street scene” within the Homeland Security Education Center.
The class will be taught by NRA certified instructor Michelle Queseda.
To attend, students are required to be at least 21 years of age, possess a valid Firearm Owner Identification Card, a valid Illinois state I.D. or driver’s license, and be physically capable of safely and effectively operating a firearm.
To assist students with the Illinois concealed carry permit application, the college is also offering electronic fingerprints and a digital photo for an additional fee of $60.
