“Carrying a concealed handgun is a privilege in the state of Ohio and successfully passing this course allows citizens to carry a concealed handgun legally,” said Mike Cornell, Owens director of the Center for Emergency Preparedness. “Safety is the first principal of the class. Anything less is unacceptable.”
Course content will focus on firearm safety, firearms law and safe gun handling, as well as instruction related to proper maintenance and storage practices for handguns and ammunition. Additional topics include the skills and attitude necessary to use a handgun and its appropriate use for self-defense. The course will culminate with hands-on training at the College’s firing range.
The program will be instructed by certified Ohio Police Academy firearms instructors. The course is expected to be repeated monthly. The cost is $85.
