HARRISBURG, IL (KFVS) - Southeastern Illinois College is now teaching Illinois concealed carry classes.
Currently, the classroom portion is taught at SIC and the hands-on training is taught at the Harrisburg Hunters' Club.
Those applying for the Illinois Concealed Carry License must put in a total of 16 hours of training.
According to SIC, some of those hours can be earned in military training, hunter safety courses and other concealed carry courses, such as the Utah Concealed Carry course, which is good for 36 states.
"The Utah concealed carry class will cover every state that touches Illinois, so it is advisable to take this class, as well, if you will be crossing state lines," said Kerry Jones, an instructor.
Additional details can be found on the Illinois State Police website.
Jones will be teaching the Utah class next on Dec. 21, 8 a.m.-noon at SIC.
