Lake Land College is offering two-day Introduction to Concealed Carry classes at Accuracy Firearms in Effingham on April 1 and 2 and May 5 and 6. All classes will meet from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The class satisfies the 16-hour training requirement to be eligible to obtain an Illinois Concealed Carry permit. After completing the class, the student will pay a $150 fee to the state for a five year period.
