CCW classes are not intended to be beginning shooting classes.  If you cannot pass the range qualification, you will not be issued a Certificate of Completion.  Please make sure ahead of time that you can pass the range qualification.  It's not difficult, but it does take some practice.

If you fail to qualify, you can make another appointment with Sierra CCW, and you will be brought back to the shooting range for another attempt.  The first re-test is FREE. There is a $50 fee for each subsequent re-qualification session at the range.  We do NOT want you to fail, so please practice beforehand.

Contact your issuing agency or visit their website for information on their range qualification requirements.  Each county has their own requirements.  The range qualification portion of your Original or Renewal CCW class at Sierra CCW will follow your issuing agency's guidelines.

For Nevada County and Placer County (diagram below), you will use a total of 30 rounds of ammunition.  24 of those shots fired must hit the target, within a 24" by 16" area, set at different distances.  If less than 24 rounds fired hit the target, then you must reschedule another time with Sierra CCW to try again.  The range qualification is not timed, nor will you draw from a holster.
