The Jefferson Indoor Training Center currently offers two types of classes per week. One class offered is the Concealed Carry/Basic Pistol Class. This class will satisfy all of the instructional requirements for the Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit Application. Since this class also includes Basic Pistol instruction designed by the NRA training department, it is a good chance for anyone looking to learn the basics of firearms and firearm safety.

The second class offered is the Louisiana Permit Renewal Class. This class will satisfy the Louisiana State requirements for renewing a valid permit that is close to expiration. Both classes are offered on Saturdays at the Jefferson Indoor Training Center in Metairie.

Our instructors, Range Officers, and Staff at The Jefferson Indoor Training Center are here to assist in every way possible in your goal of obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit from the State of Louisiana. We offer the certified training and hands-on assistance necessary for a well-rounded understanding of firearms, firearms safety, concealed carry, and permit application preparation/submission.


We have Basic Handgun Safety classes available for beginners and those looking to brush up on their skills. The classes are available by APPOINTMENT ONLY with limited Walk-In availability. Please call to schedule an appointment.

The class will consist of basic knowledge to help you understand the fundamentals of shooting sports. This will include basic information about safe gun handling and proper range etiquette.

Students will also have an opportunity to practice what they’ve learned at the end of the course with a live fire session on our range with their instructor.

The class is located at our Range location at 6719 Airline Hwy. in Metairie, LA.


The Concealed Carry/Basic Pistol Class consists of three parts: Basic Pistol Instruction, Concealed Carry Instruction, and Live-Fire Range Qualification. All three parts are completed in one nine-hour Saturday Course. Upon completion of class requirements, your instructor will issue an official Jefferson Indoor Training Center Certificate suitable for framing.

Group Classes are also available by appointment. Please see our contact us page to schedule your group class (between 5 and 15 students) with an instructor.

What to bring with you on class day:

  • A copy of the Concealed Handgun Permit Application (completed and signed). This can be found online at LSP.ORG.
  • Your handgun and a minimum of 36 rounds of ammunition. (Gun rentals and ammunition are available for purchase on class day)


  • A Half Hour (30 minute) lunch break will be offered in the early afternoon. You may bring a lunch and eat-in or leave to eat lunch and return within the allotted 30 minutes.

The Jefferson Indoor Training Center also offers a RENEWAL CLASS for current Louisiana Concealed Carry Permit Holders.
