What do you provide for the CCW student?

Because CCW AZ School is intent on providing the very best when it comes to firearms instruction, there are many benefits to becoming one of our students.

We understand that not everyone has had experience handling and shooting firearms, and because of this, we offer 5 different courses that range in skill level at 5 different locations. Beginner and expert shooters alike will find a course that works for them.

For more information on each of our courses, check out our course curriculum pages by clicking the links above.

After our Students complete a course, we assist in the Permit acquisition process. There are several steps that can be difficult to navigate.

  • Finger Printing: We offer finger printing at NO CHARGE during our regularly scheduled classes.
  • Permit Application: We help you fill out all of the necessary paperwork, so it’s completed the right way, the first time.

PLEASE NOTE:  All of our students will receive if needed, gun rentals and ammunition to complete their course (if they do not own a gun) at NO CHARGE. The fee for shooting range is included in the initial course fee at Ben Avery Shooting Range, C2 Tactical Gun Range, Caswell’s Gun Range and Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club.  If one must pay cash day of class it will be $10 per student higher than price listed for that class.

Our students train with the best. Instructor Bob (De-Nay) Denis is a highly trained Master Instructor at CCW AZ School and has numerous qualifications, credentials, and certifications, and is a U.S. Military Combat Veteran.

Holsters optional not required.

 

How long will it take to obtain a CCW permit?

Applications are typically processed and permits issued/mailed normally within 3 to 6 weeks of receipt. However, it can take up to 75 business days to complete all of the required qualification checks.

 

I completed the DPS armed security guard training course. May I use that to satisfy the 3 hour, 4 hour or the 8 hour CCW certificate training requirement?

Yes, provide a copy of your Armed Guard card, or the training certificate you received, as proof of firearms competence along with the other documents required to obtain a permit.

 

I am moving to Arizona. Is my concealed weapon permit from my former state of residence transferable?

No. There is no provision in the law for transferring concealed weapon permits.

 

Can I pay my application fee with a personal check?

No. Acceptable forms of payment include money order, certified check or cashier’s check made payable to AZ DPS in the amount of $60 (this is for your 5 Year permit).
This is not due at the time of our CCW Class. You can pay this at a later date (you’ll have up to six months to pay this permit fee).

 

 

Can I carry a firearm in my vehicle

As long as a casual observer can see you have an unconcealed firearm, you are not violating any laws.
If you want to conceal the firearm in your vehicle, the easiest way is to get your AZ CCW permit.
Otherwise, you may be subject to the court’s interpretation of whether or not you had ‘immediate access’

 

I have a CCW permit. Can I carry my handgun on school grounds while picking up my child?

Conditionally. If you remain in your vehicle and the handgun is unloaded before entering school grounds, yes.
If you have to exit your vehicle while picking up your child, the handgun must be unloaded (as above) and secured (locked) within the vehicle out of plain view. Use caution if you must exit the vehicle with a handgun (or any weapon) to secure it in the trunk of your vehicle. Others may see you and not understand your intention.

Additionally, designated employees of a school may order a person off of school property if that person is believed to be interfering with school operations. School boards may also enact specific and more restrictive rules governing firearms and deadly weapons on school grounds. Determine what the rules of a school are before attempting to enter school grounds with a firearm.
