Complete your safety training for both the Oregon Concealed Handgun License (CHL) and the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP) in one convenient comprehensive course!
The combined Oregon Concealed Handgun License (CHL) / Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP) Safety Training course is approximately 5 hours and is conducted by the certified instructors at Defensive Firearms Instruction. Successful completion of the course provides you with the certificate required to apply for both your Oregon CHL and your Utah CFP.
By Oregon/Utah law if you want to carry a firearm concealed upon your person, or concealed and readily accessible within a vehicle, you must have an Oregon CHL issued by your county Sheriff’s office and a Utah CPF issued by Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI). You must be at least 21 years of age, have proof of good character – including, but not limited to: No felony convictions, misdemeanor convictions for domestic violence, or active restraining orders, and demonstrate competence with a handgun. The Oregon CHL / Utah CFP Safety Training meets the required educational requirements set by both ORS 166.291 and Utah BCI to apply. The information delivered in the safety course is cited from the National Rifle Association (NRA), the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST), and Utah (BCI) .
Oregon CHL is recognized in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont.
There are some states that will only accept the Utah CFP so long as the permit holder is a resident of Utah. The following 31 states will recognize the permit holder as a non-Utah resident: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Puerto Rico.
It is the responsibility of all Oregon CHL / Utah CFP holders to know and understand the applicable firearm laws of the states within which they plan to visit or venture.
Note: Oregon and Utah firearms safety courses do not require live fire exercises, so no firearm is needed for the course.
