Hand Gun Certification Class Slated January 6

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, January 6, 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.

This course is being taught through 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. For additional information or to register for this course, contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.
