FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

1/4/2016

CLEVELAND, WI – 

Lakeshore Technical College is offering Firearm Safety for Concealed Carry Weapons course which will take place on Saturday, January 23 from 8am - noon at Lakeshore Technical College in the Public Safety Building. 

This class meets the state's education requirements for students to acquire a Wisconsin CCW License/Permit. This course will provide participants with an overview of handgun safety practices and concealed carry considerations. It is designed as a safety course, not a training course. For example, this course teaches how to identify a loaded handgun and how to safely unload it, but does not teach how to load or fire a handgun.

Participants will also learn the Wisconsin Department of Justice process for obtaining, maintaining, and renewing a concealed carry permit, analyze considerations regarding the carry of a concealed weapon and discuss the legal implications of carrying a concealed weapon.

The instructor, Jason Wilterdink, has 15 years of experience as a Law Enforcement Officer.  In addition to his experience as a Law Enforcement Officer, he is currently a full-time instructor at LTC, a master instructor in use of force, and certified by several organizations as a firearms instructor and has served as an instructor in self-defense, training, safety, security, health, wellness, and fitness.

Jason also served in an international police mission for the United Nations where he served in Liberia-West Africa as the team leader for the crowd control team and lead instructor for physical security, operational security, and civil unrest in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 1509.

The cost for this class is $85 and the class number is 21851.  To register by phone with credit card, call 1.888.GO TO LTC (1.888.468.6582) Ext. 1366.
