    So I have a question. I understand that through this course you can apply for a Virginia concealed carry permit. But, does the completion of the course qualify for Arizona as a concealed carry course. So when I complete the course, can I sent the certificate in to apply for my Arizona concealed carry permit?

    Lane, the online concealed carry course that we have for sale on our website doesn't qualify for the Arizona permit. It only qualifies for the Virginia permit. That said, once you have obtained a Virginia permit, a photocopy of the Virginia permit can be used as proof of training when applying for the Arizona permit; but the certificate from our course will not qualify by itself. I realize that doesn't make a lot of sense but that is the deal.
