LA Concealed Handgun Permit – Online Certification


Rated 5 out of 5
(49 customer reviews)
SKU: LACERT Category:

Louisiana has a state-mandated training course for most people applying for a concealed handgun permit. This training is required by law to be at least 9 hours, and is split between classroom information and a range qualification. Our hybrid, e-learning exceeds the requirements in Louisiana to apply for the Concealed Handgun Permit.

The online portion of the course allows you to view the material on your own time, and most importantly, at your own pace. All lessons and quizzes can be completed at the same time, or in smaller blocks if preferred. This can allow for a higher retention of the information. After completing the course, you will also have access to the material for up to 2 years so that you can go back and view the material again.

The e-learning purchase fee and registration includes the classroom information only. After completing the online material, you will get access to register for the range qualification. This is usually completed in 1-2 hours. For your convenience, we have both weekday and weekend options available for the shooting qualifications. The shooting qualification fee with us is $35, which also includes the range fee. Both the e-learning and shooting qualification are needed in order to receive a completed certificate to apply for the Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit.

If you are not local to us, we have partnered with other ranges and instructors to make the process as seamless as possible for you. We currently have qualification locations arranged in these cities, but are adding more quickly.

The course is limited to a single person per email address. The course includes a certification, therefore each person must complete the course as an individual for time tracking and certificate purposes.

If you would prefer a traditional in-person course, then we have available options on the website at

I’ve been around firearms since my dad gave me a 12ga shotgun when I was eleven to hunt rabbits. I have also been in the military and received training there. I am now 80 years old and I learned things in this course that I’d never considered. Great job Bearco!

Succinct, precise, professional! Barrett does a great job of presenting the required and pertinent regulations regarding application for and use of a CHP while selectively employing audio and visual aids. I really appreciate the fact that he does not stammer to search for words or say “um” during the lectures. I have already recommended this course to several of my friends who don’t have the time to attend the actual classroom and need the flexibility of working at their own pace. I completed the nine hour course in four days, and I’m very grateful that Bearco has helped Louisiana step up their game in CHP education.

I took both the intro to defensive handgun as well as the concealed carry hybrid classes, the video content is extremely informative and well put together. The range training with Barret was also great, you can tell he has been doing these trainings for a long time and is very informative and patient and will gladly answer any questions that come up, in fact he actively encourages you to ask questions.
I highly recommend these courses for anyone new to shooting looking to get proper training.

I’m glad I found Bearco’s online course to complete my renewal this year. This was my third course and by far the most informative. It’s nice to be able to go at your own pace to learn the information provided. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, even first timers.

Tells it straight and to the point, without being critical. Your lessons, your knowledge.
