Enhanced Concealed Carry

Disclaimer: The purpose of the Enhanced Concealed Carry (ECC) course is to educate students in Idaho law as well as train them how to responsibly carry a concealed firearm, not to develop deep combat proficiency (even though all students should develop the foundational skills required for proficiency after shooting the 98 rounds required by Idaho state law). Therefore, prior to taking the ECC course, it would benefit all students to enroll in training that introduces them to fundamental shooting practices. Such skills are taught in depth in our Basic and Intermediate Pistol courses. Students should also continue training even after participating in the ECC course.

Class Duration: 8 Hours

Class Cost: $150.00

Class Description:

This course satisfies the requirements of Idaho Code 18-3302K, enabling students to apply for an Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Permit as well as an Oregon Concealed Carry Permit.

Students enrolled in this course will:

  • Learn the laws pertaining to armed self-defense in Idaho.
  • Learn where the Enhanced Concealed Carry Permit is recognized and where it is not, including state reciprocity. 
  • Understand the responsibilities attached to an individual who chooses to carry a concealed firearm.

Additional course topics include:

  • What kind of pistol to carry, how to carry it, and why
  • Situational awareness and confrontation avoidance
  • Adopting a defensive mindset
  • Strategies and responses to an attack
  • Psychological processes prior to, during, and after an armed encounter
  • Legal processes prior to, during, and after an armed encounter

Students will fire a minimum of 100 rounds of pistol ammunition, including a 40 round standardized course of fire.  This course of fire is not under any time constraints and has been adopted by IIS as a basic tool to show the student what they need to work on in order to carry and use a pistol with confidence.   

This is an intermediate level class. Students should attend only after attaining a basic understanding of firearm marksmanship, operation, and maintenance.
