There's a new class becoming available next semester for Lake Land College students.

The college will start offering a two-day Introduction to Concealed Carry classes next year.

Participants can choose from two dates for the 16-hour course:

Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019 – Sunday, January 6, 2019

Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019 – Sunday, February 3, 2019

The classes will be held at Accuracy Firearms, 1300 S. Raney, St., Effingham.

Both course sections will meet from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The class aims to educate students about handguns best suited for personal defense, how to carry them safely, and how to deploy and use them efficiently in the context of a dynamic critical incident.

The class will also cover the laws pertaining to the appropriate and lawful use of carrying handguns in public. The cost is $150 for the two-day class.

To register, go to, choose the class date, and enroll. Drop date for a refund is five business days prior to the class.
