CHL Certification


CHLThe Newberg Rifle and Pistol Club is a premier training facility for concealed handgun certification in the Portland area. Our instructors have extensive NRA certifications and combine the disciplines of law enforcement, military, and civilian shooting to provide the student with a unique learning experience.  Additionally we offer a live fire segment after the class, at no additional charge.  Coached live fire is something very few training facilities offer as part of certification training.

Upon successful completion of the course participants will receive the documentation required to apply for the following:

Oregon Concealed Handgun License
Utah Concealed Handgun Permit
Arizona Concealed Weapon Permit
Florida Concealed Weapon License

The Utah, Arizona and Florida permits are useful for travelers as they are honored in many more states then the Oregon CHL. With the training you will also receive fingerprinting on the appropriate cards and passport style photos to complete your applications.  The cost schedule for endorsements is:

Oregon $50.00
Oregon plus one other state $100
Oregon plus two other states $130
All four states $160
One state without Oregon $80
Two states without Oregon $115
Three states without Oregon $150

Classroom instruction is expected to last three to four hours depending on endorsements. Live fire is conducted at our indoor range under the supervision of the Chief Range Officer.  Individual coaches will assist each shooter participating in the exercise.  It is suggested the participants bring their own handgun and fifty rounds of factory new ammunition.  Each personal firearm will be inspected to ensure it is fully functional and in safe condition for use in the live fire exercise.
