Due to continued high demand, Madison Area Technical College is offering additional "Concealed Carry and Handgun Fundamentals Safety Courses" in January and February.
The college reports the six-hour class meets the training requirements mandated by the state's concealed carry law, which went into effect on Nov. 1. Those who are 21-and-over who wish to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon first have to acquire special training and pass a background check.
The course offered by MATC covers: basic knowledge of firearm safety; weapon handling and malfunction solutions; legal responsibilities of firearm ownership and use; and personal decision making on possessing and using a firearm.
