The Concealed Carry Institute, the Internet's FIRST online handgun safety class, meets Iowa law to qualify you for obtaining a Concealed Weapons Permit, on your schedule and at your convenience. No more waiting for the next class... the next class is just one click away!
The instruction consists of 65 minutes of our complete handgun safety class, followed by a 20 question test. Upon completion, simply print your certificate and take it to your county Sheriff's office and apply there.
We believe that every county in Iowa recognizes this course. If you contact your local Sheriff to see if this class is accepted (our attorney in Iowa says it absolutely meets the law), be sure to let him know that Stephen A. Dowdy is the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services certified instructor that is conducting the class. His credentials can be verified by going to
and entering License # IN-0100121 into the License Number Field and then hitting "Search". His credentials meet Iowa's standards for conducting a firearm safety class in order to obtain a concealed weapons permit.
