This model curriculum has been developed to support implementation of 2011 Wisconsin Act 35. This course provides 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 you how to identify a loaded handgun and how to safely unload it, but does not teach how to load or fire a handgun. This class meets the state's education requirements for students to acquire a Wisconsin CCW License/Permit. Additional fees and applications are the responsibility of the student. (Note: This course does not substitute for practice and training in handgun operation. Furthermore, it does not address all the provisions of Wisconsin Act 35, such as changes to laws governing knives or electric weapons.)
