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. Jan. 17.
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 instructor John Ayer will also cover legal liabilities, firing range participation, course review and testing.
The course will consist of two separate but interrelated sessions of classroom and firing range instruction in a one-day eight-hour course. Upon completion, each student will take a written examination and handgun firing qualification test. A minimum of 70 percent must be achieved on each section to successfully pass the concealed weapons course.
The registration fee is $95. Each student should bring a pen, pencil and paper, a handgun, 50 rounds of ammunition, safety glasses, hearing protection for firing range instruction and a pistol-cleaning kit.
To register, contact ECCE at (731) 881-7082 or go online to www.utm.edu/departments/ecce/non_credit_registration.php.
