Thank you for enrolling in a Powers Firearms Training Corporation training opportunity. You will need to bring each of the firearms you would like to have on your permit (unloaded and in a locked container), 2 magazines if you have them, a minimum of 27 rounds of ammunition per gun for the qualification. Also please bring a 100 rounds of ammunition for range exercises, and eye/ear protection. The fee for class is $120.00 and we accept cash, check or credit cards as payment for the class. Payment is made at the time of the class. Please contact us with any questions you may have regarding this class. We appreciate the opportunity to earn your patronage.
Some students take this class purely for the information and the training offered and have no intention of applying for a concealed weapons permit. However, if you are applying for a permit through the Kern County Sheriff’s Department, you are strongly encouraged to apply for the permit prior to taking the class. Taking the class before applying for the permit does not help you in the approval process nor does it guarantee that you will be approved for the permit. Also, the class certificate is honored by the Sheriff for 90 days after taking the class. If you take your class first, you have only 90 days within which you must get the application approved by the Sheriff. If your application process takes longer than the 90 days the certificate is valid, you must re-certify your training.
Other agencies have different rules regarding applying for the permit, you should check with your agency regarding this process.
