Why Should You Get an Arizona CCW Permit…

Arizona CCW Permit holders have advantages over people that don't get a permit.  The big ones are:

  • Carry privileges in 36 states with the Arizona permit.
  • No background check requirement when purchasing firearms.
  • Concealed Carry permitted in restaurants that allow concealed carry.
  • Concealed Carry permitted in national parks in Arizona.


Why Our Courses Are Different…

Our training takes a completely different approach.  We don't believe in teaching online courses by giving you a document to read and letting you take a test. We want to provide you with a concise explanation of the concept we are trying to teach.  


  • We teach you what you need to know to be safe.  
  • We teach you how to handle yourself during a potentially violent encounter with a criminal.  
  • We teach you how to avoid becoming a victim of violent crime.  
  • We teach you what you need to know to survive real-world encounters.
  • We teach you Arizona law as it relates to the use of physical or lethal force.
  • We teach you where you can and cannot legally carry a concealed weapon in Arizona.


In short, we teach you what you need to know to carry a concealed weapon legally and responsibly in Arizona...You will not find a better choice for online Arizona CCW training.


What do I need to submit my AZ CCW application…

After receiving your course completion certificate, you will also need an AZ CCW application packet.  We send you one of these free with your paid registration.


You will need to complete the application and submit two fingerprint cards along with an application fee of $60 payable to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.  The fee must be either a certified check or money order.  They do not accept personal checks or cash.  You must also include a copy of your course completion certificate along with your application package.
