The University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Continuing Education (ECCE) is offering a concealed weapons permit class from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Nov. 8.
The goal of this course is to provide education in the fundamentals of handgun safety. Students will be taught how to use, clean and store handguns.
State-certified handgun in-structors John Ayers and Larry Coffman will also cover legal liabilities, firing range participation, course review and testing.
The handgun safety course will consist of two separate but related areas of classroom and firing range instruction.
This is a one-day, eight-hour course.
Upon course completion, each student will take a written examination and handgun firing qualification test. A minimum of 70 percent must be achieved on both sections to successfully pass the concealed weapons course. After successful completion, students may apply for a concealed weapons permit from the State of Tennessee.
The registration fee is $95. Each student should bring a pen, pencil and paper to class, as well as a handgun, 50 rounds of ammunition, safety glasses and hearing protection for firing range instruction. Students should also provide a pistol-cleaning kit in class.
No one younger than age 21 is allowed to enroll in this course.
