UTAH Concealed Firearms Permit

4-1/2 hrs. / $125

Course Overview: (Classroom Only)

We’re proud to announce that TW's Trigger Techniques now offers the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit course.  The Utah CFP is one of the most sought-after Concealed Firearm Permits in the United States.

 The Utah CFP course is a 4-hour classroom-based course taught by NRA-certified & Utah BCI-certified instructors. Course instruction includes the following topics:  handgun safety rules, handgun parts and operation, ammunition, fundamentals of shooting, safe firearms handling, Utah criminal & traffic code, U.S. federal firearms regulations, BCI administration policy, practical and legal considerations, and more. Although this is NOT a live-fire course and range time is not required, I encourage you to cultivate your marksmanship skills by scheduling 1-on-1 training with me at your convenience. This is not an NRA approved course but utilizes a National Rifle Association Certified Instructor in accordance with the Commonwealth of Virginia’s requirement for demonstration of handgun competency. So if you don’t already have your Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit, you can take the course and apply for the VA CHP and the UTAH CFP.   

Preregistration and prepayment are required for everyone attending this course. This allows us to make sure we have enough course participant packets for each person taking the class. Secure credit/debit card and PayPal account payments accepted. Full refunds are given only if the course is canceled by TW’s Trigger Techniques, LLC. Failure to attend scheduled training will result in forfeiture of a $50 deposit because that training slot has been lost. 1 on 1 session can be rescheduled with prior notification.


The UTAH CFP application process includes:

A course completion certificate, FBI fingerprinting (which is required by the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification), passport photo, and associated fees. 

Each course participant packet contains: 

Course handouts of material covered, CD with course curriculum, a blue FBI fingerprint card, a Utah Non-Resident CFP application, and a self-addressed envelope to mail in all of your CFP paperwork.
