It should be noted that a CCW class is not always for a beginner.  It's generally designed for and intended to be a venue for applicants with a basic understanding of shooting and gun handling techniques.  To that point, for less experienced persons, preparatory training could prove beneficial, increasing the applicant's confidence and probable success.  Completion of a course does not guarantee issuance or renewal of a CCW Permit.  It is only one step, of several, that must be met.
