Legal Heat, the Nation’s largest concealed firearm training firm, has brought its industry leading training online with this Washington 1639 & Concealed Pistol License (CPL) and Oregon License to Carry a Concealed Handgun (LTC) Combo Course. This single online course will satisfy all of the necessary training requirements needed in order to apply for all of those permits. Simply take the course, print your certificate, head to the sheriff's office to apply for your Washington/Oregon permit!
This course also provides you with your Washington 1639 certification which is required to purchase a semiautomatic rifle in the state of Washington.
Instructions for obtaining your Washington CPL, Oregon LTC and Washington 1639 Certificate will be provided in detail at the end of this course.
If you want just the Washington 1639 Certification by itself you can also take a look at our I-1639 training course online here.
Note: To obtain only the Washington CPL there is no formal training requirement, however to obtain the 1639 certification or the Oregon LTC you must take this class. This course covers Washington laws extensively, so even though training for the Washington CPL alone is not required, it is still a very useful course for those obtaining their concealed pistol license.
1. Where can I carry after I receive my permit(s)?
NOTE: Where a state’s permit is honored (often called “reciprocity”) will change from time to time. Having multiple state carry permits can help cover the gaps in any potential changes. As such, we always suggest checking the Legal Heat App or our Legal Heat “50 State Guide to Firearm Laws and Regulations” book before you travel, to ensure your permit is valid in the locations you will be visiting.

2. Are Online Classes Good Enough?
Within the firearm industry, there is a lot of debate about what constitutes enough training to prepare someone for carrying a concealed firearm. Throughout the United States, Legal Heat teaches nearly 100 different in-person concealed firearm permit courses each month. These courses will range from 4 hours in length to over 3 days in duration, depending on the state laws where we operate. Legal Heat’s position on what constitutes enough training is that there is never enough training.
We encourage all of our students, whether in-person or online, to continue their firearm safety and functionality training for their entire lifetime. However, when it comes to qualifying someone to exercise their inalienable right to carry a firearm for self-protection, we are not going to force anyone to do anything more than state law requires. If your state requires a 16-hour in-person training course (like Illinois), then we are going to offer the absolute best 16-hour course in the industry. If other states (such as Virginia, Idaho or Iowa) only require completion of an online training course, then we will offer the best online training course possible. We are here to encourage people to exercise their rights, not to dissuade them from doing so.
This course has been designed by attorneys, professional firearm instructors, college professors, and graphic designers. Make no mistake, this is the finest online training course on the market.
Once you complete your online training course we hope to see you in one of our hundreds of in-person training courses as you continue your firearm training education.
