Information for Instructors
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing a high level of safety for all Carry Concealed Weapons (CCW) license holders as well as all citizens of the County. Toward that end, Placer County Sheriff Office has established standards for all instructors of CCW license holders. It is our desire to standardize the minimum required training while still allowing a competitive free market for all instructors.
All CCW applicants and renewal applicants must receive training by a Placer County Sheriff Office approved instructor.
Placer County Sheriff Office only licenses approved CCW instructors to be placed on our Instructor List. To become an approved instructor you must submit, upon request, all of the required documents as set forth in our CCW Instructor Standards (link).
You may contact the CCW Program Coordinator at 530-889-6929, or fax 530-889-7897- Support Services Administration. The Coordinator will add you to the list of pending instructors. Do not send any documents not requested by the coordinator.
You must re-certify every two years (even numbered years) to maintain you position on the approved instructor list. Every two years you will be reminded to submit a current business license, insurance policy, and DOJ instructor certificate. If any other items have been changed since you were first accepted to the list, you must submit the current documents. An example would be that you changed locations of the range or updated your qualification shoot.
If any questions or concerns come up regarding instructor standards, please refer then to the CCW Program Coordinator at 530-889-6929, or fax 530-889-7897- Support Services Administration.
