This class is required to be taken every year, if you are registered in an armed position. There is no grace period for the handgun endorsement. Per DCJS regulations, you cannot renew any handgun certifications more than 90 days before your expiration date. If you take the class early, you will have to take it again when you're within that 90 day window.
Don't wait until the last minute to renew your firearms endorsement! There is no grace period with DCJS for weapon certifications! If you expire before taking a class, then you have to take entry level training again. Classes will be cancelled if minimums are not met - don't let that cause your card to expire!
Class times run from 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (not including range qualification).
Range qualification is the same day, beginning at 5:00 p.m. unless otherwise informed by the instructor the day of the class.
4 Hours Plus Range Time, $75.00 Total Cost, plus two boxes of ammo purchased at the range.
