Illinois Concealed Carry Renewal Course


Course Description

In Illinois, a Concealed Carry permit expires after five years. Fortunately, the renewal process is simple! Unlike the initial Concealed Carry training of eight or more hours, you only need to complete two hours in the classroom and one hour at a gun range to renew the permit. During this time, you will review fundamentals and also addressing any concerns or questions that have arisen since your initial training.

Our renewal course is required by law and is a great way to refresh skills learned in the initial concealed carry training. The class consists of 2 hours of classroom time at AGB’s training center at 7545 S. Western Ave. in Chicago, followed by 1 hour of training at a shooting range.

The course includes:

  • A review of basic gun handling skills, including draw, care, storage and transport.
  • Hands on instruction on technique and shooting.
  • Clarification on any new compliance laws or regulation changes.
  • Range time to practice your skills and ensure that you’re prepared.

After the course, you’ll receive a certificate stating that you’ve successfully taken the required measures to renew your CCW permit. The course also provides instructions on how to update your status with the Illinois State Police.


Applicants must have taken prior Concealed Carry training and have a current or expired CCW permit to qualify for this course.
