Those interested in firearms must download a background packet prior to enrolling. Packet is currently available.  DOJ clearance is date sensitive. Last date to submit DOJ is TBD  Although no DOJ submission can be guaranteed returned in time for a course, this gives DOJ a 6-week turn-around-time for clearances.  However, if you decide to take a chance for this course, Grossmont College or Grossmont College staff will not be held liable for any delayed or denied clearance results or cancelation of class.  No student will be permitted on the range without a DOJ clearance.

If you already have PC 832, and need just the firearms course, you may take the firearms only class by paying the required fees. You will need to notify Kathy Sentz and show proof of the Laws of Arrest class so the pre-requisite can be cleared. No parking fee required. (Must show PC 832 Certificate of completion and POST Profile, exceptions to those working for an agency).  

*Student fees: $1 for student govt. fee per semester per student. If you are registered in other classes you will not be assessed these fees again.

You may purchase daily parking permits for $2.00 per day instead of semester parking permit if this is the only class you are taking on campus.
All prices are for Ca residents.


Apply to the college first, then if interested in firearms, you must download a background packet prior to enrolling. POST requires the DOJ clearance to be dated within 90 days of the actual course. Letters dated earlier will be invalid and will require you to re-submit your DOJ application.
