Course Description

The State of Delaware requires a training course for Delaware residents who seek to obtain a license to conceal their pistol. This program consists of a comprehensive curriculum that assumes no experience on the part of the student. We introduce firearms safety topics, the fundamentals of shooting, and cover Delaware laws pertaining to the possession of a concealed weapon and the use of force in defense of self and others. If you are not a Delaware resident but wish to carry in Delaware, you may register for this course and request the Florida non-resident license documentation and certificate only. The Florida non-resident license has reciprocity with Delaware and is the perfect way for non-Delawareans to conceal in Delaware.

This class exceeds the requirements found in Delaware State Code, Title 11, § 1441(a)(3).

Prerequisites, Costs, and Range Information

This course assumes that the student has no previous firearms experience. Included in the cost: email and phone support for any questions you may have pertaining to applying for your license -- we are here to assist you through the entire licensing process!
