The COS Training Resource Center has partnered with the Tulare County Deputy Sheriff Association to offer 4 hour CCW classes.
A one-day, four-hour class required by the Department of Justice in order to apply for a CCW Permit, or to renew your CCW Permit.
Tulare County Residents: You are only required to take the 4 hour CCW class in order to apply for a CCW Permit.
Kings County Residents: You may be required to take the 16 hour BSIS Firearms Safety Course to apply for a CCW Permit. You will need to check with the issuing agency to whom you will be applying for your permit (i.e. Hanford Police, Kings County Sheriff's, etc.). Some Kings County agencies only require the 4 hour class and others require the 16 hour class.
