Students are also required to complete a rigorous 50 round qualification.  Be prepared to fire 200 rounds (supplied with the class).  Students must bring their own handgun, 2 magazines, and holster.  Class size is limited.  Tuition is $249.99 (8hrs) and $349.99 (16hrs).

Successful completion of this course does not guarantee that students will receive their wear/carry permit from Maryland State Police.  Maryland is a “may issue” state and, as such, applicants need to have a “good and substantial” reason to be approved.  For more information please visit the Maryland State Police website.

This course is offered on 2 consecutive days.  Initial applicants must attend both days.  Students who are renewing their carry permits must attend the 2nd day only.

If you are renewing your wear/carry permit, it is recommended you complete your training at least 3 months before your permit expires.

If you have any questions about whether or not you may qualify, please call the Maryland State Police, Licensing Division.
