Utah concealed carry course
Kaskaskia College will offer a Utah concealed carry course on Saturday, June 30, from 8 a.m.-noon, at the Kaskaskia College Vandalia Campus.
The Utah CFP permit training class takes four hours. Firing of a firearm is not required to obtain the non-resident Utah concealed firearm permit. The permit is valid for five years, and training is not required for renewal.
Utah concealed firearm permit is recognized by 30 states for Illinois residents – Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington State, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The permit is not valid in Illinois.
Firearm Safety Group will provide the training and will include all the training materials, photos and fingerprint cards.
Students must submit official fingerprints with their non-resident application.
A fingerprint service will be available for an additional fee.
Completion of the Utah concealed carry course allows Illinois citizens to apply for a Utah concealed carry permit.
This permit does not allow an Illinois resident to carry a concealed weapon in Illinois, but does allow the resident to carry a concealed weapon in 30 other states.
The class fee is $100, and pre-registration and payment is required and must be received by June 25. Space is limited per class, and registrants are to specify a session.
To register or for additional information, contact the KC Community Education Office at 545-3255.
The class fee does not include the $51 registration fee to the state of Utah.

CPR course
Would you know what to do if one of your co-workers, friends, or family members was choking or suddenly collapsed?
This could be a life or death situation that requires knowledge and skill to possibly save their life.
These skills can be learned in just a few hours through the American Heart Association CPR course.
This course is also beneficial to babysitters, new parents, teachers, community groups or anyone who wants to know how to react in a critical situation.
This class will be held this Friday, from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at the Kaskaskia College Vandalia Campus. Individuals can sign up for this 0.5 credit hour course (PARM 111) by calling the Vandalia Campus, 283-1780, or at the Admissions Office on the main campus, 545-3040.
Lucinda Spencer, KC’s AHA Training Center faculty and paramedicine coordinator, said, “If the date and time does not fit your schedule, we are willing to work with you; just e-mail me with a time that would be better.
“If you have a group of eight or more, I am willing to come to your location at a date and time that you prefer to do this class.”
