NOTE: There are two curriculum types that we utilize for the La Concealed Carry Permit Training Certification Course. One is the NRA Basic Pistol Course which meets the requirements for the training along with the added course subjects & information. The other is the USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals Course. The curriculum used is based on the instructor teaching the lesson. Both are valid for meeting the training requirements to receive a concealed handgun permit in Louisiana.
