ShootSafe Certification Ranges in Ohio

Per Ohio law, in order to qualify to apply for a Concealed Handgun License, you must complete 8 hours of training, two of which must be live-fire.  To make it easy for you, AFT has combined both into one course offering, Ohio Defensive Handgun: Knowledge, Skills, & Law.  The course begins with the required six hours of instruction, delivered entirely over the internet.  The first of the four web lessons is free, after which you may purchase the rest of the course, including your range certification for the low price of $99.99.  Upon successful completion of the web-based course, you will be able to schedule your live-fire certification at the range you choose below, at a time and date that works with your schedule.  

To get started, simply select the range that works best for you, and upon completion of the course, you will be able to schedule your range session!
