Utah Concealed carry training and firearms courses for private citizens and security professionals.

We are one stop for all of your training needs

We are committed to providing you, your families and loved ones with excellent training to assist you in your concealed carry journey.  We only train law abiding citizens, to accomplish that we require our students to take our Utah concealed carry course first, before taking advantage of other training, including continuing concealed carry education through our concealed carry workshop memberships.

As a law enforcement officer to much surprise, it was common to see victims of violent assaults be Utah Concealed permit holders! I would often hear victims say they rarely, or have never carried their gun outside of their home because they didn’t feel “comfortable” in doing so attributed to a lack of training.

We at Concealed Carry Class Utah want to change that. Taking a four hour Utah Concealed Carry permit is not enough training to get you where you need to be and your primary line of defense starts with you!

We don’t just drop you after taking the Utah course. Included with your course fee will include access to our concealed carry workshops where you can receive continuing education and training in all aspects of concealed carry. That assists you in moving to the comfort level you need to be at to keep your family and loved ones safe.  We train our students focusing on the proper mindset and tactics needed to be your best. When you get to the level of comfort in which find yourself carrying on a consistent regular basis, you will be at an advantage over many and knowledge is power!

Stay safe and train for responsible carry
