Hand Gun Certification Class Slated in Grantsville

The Maryland Handgun Qualification (HQL) class is being offered through Continuing Education and Workforce Development at Garrett College. The class runs from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, at the Northern Outreach Center in Grantsville.

Handgun Qualification License (HQL) training is a five-hour block of instruction which includes classroom instruction on state firearm law, home firearm safety, handgun mechanisms and operation, and a component that requires the applicant demonstrate the ability to safely fire a handgun. Unless otherwise exempt, as of October 1, 2013, a Maryland resident must possess a valid Handgun Qualification License before being allowed to purchase, rent, or receive a handgun. The classroom portion of the course will occur at Northern Outreach Center and the operation and handling demonstration will occur at a secure firing range.

Classes will be taught through the Boston Hill Training by Rick Sivic who is certified by the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI), and an NRA and Maryland State Police HQL Certified Instructor.
