Concealed Carry Weapon Classes

Madison Society is certified to conduct CCW qualification courses for Stanislaus, Merced and San Joaquin County Sheriff's Offices as well as the cities of Modesto and Turlock. We recommend making an appointment with your issuing agency prior to taking a class.

As a non profit tax exempt foundation all classes are restricted to members only. Non-Members need to go here and join the Madison Society before they can take any courses. Members need to check your membership status. If applicants joined during their last class, or individually, it was only for one year unless they joined as a lifetime membership. Therefore they must re-join now! New Memberships are all Lifetime Family Memberships and are now $30.00. Sign up online here.

CCW Class participants must be able to demonstrate handgun safety skills and familiarity with the firearms which they intend to list on their permit.
