Back by popular demand, Southeastern Illinois College is offering several Illinois concealed carry courses this summer and fall. SIC offers all three Illinois concealed carry courses — the renewal, the eight-hour and the 16-hour. Register in advance to secure a place in class, as seating is limited.

SIC’s Illinois concealed carry courses prepare participants to apply for their five-year Illinois permit, covering everything from safety to laws, and everything in-between. These courses range from $60.50 to $226 depending on a person’s situation. The concealed carry renewal course is only $80 and satisfies Illinois state law requirement to renew a current concealed carry license at or before the five-year mark. Starting the renewal process a few months before the license expiration date will help inpreventing a lapse in certification.

Concealed carry courses are scheduled for June 18, 19 and 23, while renewal courses are scheduled for Aug. 16 and 30. For a comprehensive list of concealed carry courses and associated costs, visit
