LA Concealed Handgun Permit – Online Certification


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 https://www.BearcoTraining.com/events.

Very thorough. Gives very detailed and thought-provoking information. I was impressed with the objectivity of the information presented. Veery straight-forward and factual. Taking the course online eliminates the necessity of having to arrange a schedule to be at a specific place at a prescribed time. Favorale stress on safety, how to use, store, and stage firearms. Eye-openiong information for me is gaining an understanding of all of the possible ramifications and consequences of using deadly force even when justified. It was also well-balanced in suggesting ways to aqvoid having to use deadly force. All-in-all, I thought it was a very thorough course. It impressed on me the very serious responsibility that goes with concealed carrying of a firearm.

I procrastinated taking a concealed carry course for a long time. This online course allowed me to go at my own pace and pause or listen again when I needed to take more time to understand a concept. Barret responded to my questions. The examples and demonstrations throughout the course were very helpful. The videos, scenarios and information presented really motivated me to repeatedly think about the importance of and responsibility of safely handling a firearm that I had not thought about before. I do not take the decision to carry a firearm lightly.

This was the most informative class I’ve taken by far. The videos mentioned a lot of things that were important to the whole aspect of carrying. The laws and scenarios were great and an eye opener for those who don’t follow YouTube channels like Active Self Protection. It was nice to see a lot of video/crime examples were from Louisiana. This was far better than going sit in a class all day. I liked the class gives up websites to go look up LA laws.

The only thing I didn’t like was the USCCA advertisement (video). I would rather have the pros and cons of having conceal carry insurance be mentioned without mentioning any company. I can only assume USCCA paid to have their company in it which is fine. I do not like seeing USCCA in a lot of “gun tubers”. When a person or company pushes one brand of carry insurance, it seems like they are paid for instead of looking out for the people they are making content for. But i get it, it’s a business and the goal is to make money. If it were not for the USCCA ads on “gun tubers”, I would of not looked into carry insurance.

I still give this class a 10/10. See you guys again in five years.

When I noticed my CCW license was about to expire, I began thinking about how to do it. I check the LSP site and downloaded an application. I was ready to investigate possible instructors when I got an email from Bearco about their online course. Because I do a lot of work on the compute and online, I signed up. It was economical, the instruction was first class and up to date and it fulfilled my need to renew the license without taking a day to sit in an office or classroom. Highly recommended, lots of great information about the responsibility of carrying a firearm and trying to do everything possible to avoid drawing my weapon.
