The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office offers a Citizen’s Firearm Safety class for people interested in learning basic handgun safety. This course can be used to fulfill one of the requirements for a Florida concealed weapons permit. There is a two-hour classroom portion, as well time on the firearm range. The time on the firearm range is to practically apply the information learned from the classroom. There is no cost for this class, but you must provide your own handgun and 25 rounds of ammunition. You can share your handgun if you come with a friend/spouse, but be sure to bring enough ammunition for both. Upon arrival to the class, leave your unloaded handgun locked in your vehicle. The instructor will give the procedure on when and how to bring the handgun into the firearm range.
We have eye and ear protection at the range, however it is highly recommended to bring your own. Please do not wear open toe shoes.
The name you enter on your application must match your name as it appears on your driver’s license.
Note: You can use this class certificate towards a concealed weapons permit.
