Multi-State CCW Permits – Utah and Arizona

The Multi-State CCW class prepares you to apply for Utah CCW and/or Arizona CCW permits, including the required instruction and all necessary paperwork.

Utah’s concealed carry weapons permit (CCW) is regulated by the Bureau of Criminal Identification of Utah.  The permit to carry a concealed firearm in the state of Utah requires the completion of their application and the course of instruction, as well as meeting certain requirements as outlined on the application.

Arizona’s Non-Resident CCW is similar.

We teach this class monthly on the Last Sunday of the month. When demand requires, we add classes on other days – see the class calendar. We conduct the class in Downtown Riverside.
