In addition to the required SPOs, the Ohio Concealed Handgun License Certification pamphlet is also taught, which will allow the student to apply for their state concealed carry license with the OPOTA certificate.  The following are subject matters taught:


! ! ! THIS IS A PERFORMANCE DRIVEN CLASS ! ! !

The State of Ohio mandates that only those individuals who achieve a PASSING score on both the written and firearms performance objectives will be certified by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission.

Each student can test twice on each test.  If both attempts are failed on the written test, the student will receive a FAILING score and will not be able to continue to the practical range training and testing.  If the student receives a FAILING score twice on any of the practical range performance objectives, that student will not be certified.

FAILING EITHER THE WRITTEN TEST OR PRACTICAL RANGE TEST WILL DISQUALIFY YOU FROM BEING CERTIFIED – THIS DOES NOT ENTITLE YOU TO A REFUND! 

OCFT Academy will allow those students who fail a one time chance to retake the class for $185.00.  If the class must be taken again due to another failing score, then full price of the next class must be paid.
