We offer certification courses for Concealed Carry Licensure. These courses are required prior to applying for a Concealed Handgun License in Albuquerque New Mexico.
The courses themselves are 15-hours in length, as required by law. After the Department of Public Safety (NM DPS Concealed Carry Unit) receives your application and completed background check they have 90 days to approve or deny your application. Typically, applicants receive their license far sooner than 90 days.
There are three parties involved with obtaining an Albuquerque Concealed Carry License (NM CCW License): 1: The instructor or company providing instruction - We charge $99 + tax. 2: The fingerprinting company - If you register directly with Cogent the fee is $44. 3. The DPS - The initial application fee is $56.
