Upgrade to “Enhanced” from an existing CHCL

Upgrade to “Enhanced” from an existing CHCL

This is a minimum 4 hour course for those who currently hold a valid CHCL issued within the past 10 years. Upon completion of the “Upgrade” to Enhanced course, a new license replacement fee along with your course paperwork will need to be sent to the Arkansas State Police to receive your Enhanced endorsed license. The Enhanced endorsement will allow concealed carry in more places: churches, state capitol grounds, establishments that serve alcohol, athletic events, and more!


Hearing and eye protection is mandatory. If you do not have any, you may purchase them for $5 on-site or on the website when you book. Students will need at least 100 rounds of ammunition. If you do not own a pistol, rentals are available at a cost of $10, plus the cost of ammunition.
