    I'm going home for the holidays and my father wants me to take his Tennessee permit class with him.

    Since I still don't have my VA permit (I am a VA resident) I am curious to know if I can use this training to get my VA carry permit.

    According to the training:

    Upon completion of this course you’ll receive the Certificate of Handgun Training required by the Tennessee Department of Safety as part of your application for your handgun carry permit.


    I assume I can use that certificate for my Virginia permit?

    Thanks!

    The exact class is :

    Level I - Basic Personal Protection Course
    and found here http://www.rangemaster.com/desc_level_1-5.html#level_1

    I'll call and ask them if its been certified by Tennessee or the NRA

    Thanks for the quote.

    I see it covers "Basic handgun usage"

    I would think you would be covered by #2
