Utah is either recognized by, or has formal reciprocity agreements with 35 other States, including the State of Washington (which Oregon does not). This course is taught in a classroom and will focus on several items including but not limited to:

  • Handgun safety, storage and security
  • Handgun anatomy and handling skills
  • Ammunition overview
  • Utah law related to carrying a concealed handgun and the use of deadly physical force
  • Utah specific training curriculum
  • Understanding the criteria that must be met to justify the use of deadly physical force
  • Understanding the proper use of the Force Options
  • Strategies and tactics for avoiding and/or dealing with threats without the use of deadly physical force
  • Developing the proper defensive mindset
  • Much, much more


It is important that each student understands that this course alone in no way fully prepares them for all of the possibilities they may encounter that may require the justified use of deadly physical force. The CHL classes are not designed to replace or supersede real, practical defensive handgun training; specifically, live fire training. At 540 Tactical we are not simply certificate signers. There are many places to obtain a basic certificate in order to fulfill the requirement to obtain a CHL. However, there are far fewer places that actually prepare their students in a meaningful way to prevail in a life threatening encounter. While not mandatory, we feel strongly that all students taking this course should also register for
  Live Fire addition. 


By design, it is typically offered at the end of each CHL class. Attending  Live Fire addition is a good start to developing the safe, practical and proven defensive handgun skills and mind-set necessary to prevail in a life threatening encounter. In fact, we feel so strongly about this that we will waive the course fee for Live Fire addition if you do not see its value after completing the course.
