Utah Concealed Firearm Permit

This course is designed to expand the number of states in which you can legally carry a firearm

The non resident Utah firearms permit allows the permit holder to carry concealed in more states than what their state of residence allows. For our South Carolina students, the Utah CFP allows them to legally carry concealed in Georgia. Unfortunately, it does not enable Georgia residents to carry legally in South Carolina as South Carolina does not recognize the Georgia or Utah permit. This course covers basic pistol safety and may be duplicative of, for example, some of what is already covered in the South Carolina Concealed Weapon Permit class. Normally a four hour course, this class may be combined with other classes. The additional time is spent is mainly on the law within Utah regarding concealed carry. At the end of this course, the student will be furnished with a complete packet to the state of Utah which includes an application, fingerprint card, and photograph. We are responsible to ensure all Utah CFP students possess the knowledge, skills, attitude, necessary to qualify for this permit.  Residents of Georgia or any other state that does not require training prior to obtaining a concealed weapon permit may be required to demonstrate proficiency with their firearm. Course length may be longer than stated to ensure all training objectives are met.
