Note on the price: I have maintained the online training price at $10 for ten+ years, mainly because my primary aim has been to make getting appropriate training for a CHL as cheap as possible. As you can guess, costs have increased over the years, and from time to time I have used my own money to subsidize this website. I have reluctantly decided that I need to increase the price a little. The base price is now $15. However, for those that really are having problems affording the price of getting a CHL, the original $10 price is still available. Use the drop-down just above the payment button to select it.
This online course goes beyond the minumum required by the state to satisfy the requiremnts for a CHL application. It includes a section on aspects of practical self-defense in addition to the legally required handgun safety component.
The course takes about 40 minutes to complete. There are seven sections, covering handgun safety and practical self-defense.

With the online course, there is no-such feedback available, so I rely on you, the person taking the course to let me know if you think that something is not clear, if more explanation is required, or if something you consider important is missing. If any of the above are true for you, please take a couple of seconds to drop me an email, or a note in the comments section and I can hopefully improve the course for future students.
