    Check your state and local laws as the laws vary quite a bit. Some states do not call it a CC license.

    And ask the people who teach the course. You're going to have to get in touch with them anyway.

    not familiar in Kansas laws but ...to be safe, just wait till you become 21. Because money you pay is non-refundable.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    You can also go to Handgunlaw.us to read the summary of your state and follow the links to your state's requirements and statutes.

    My daughter took the course when she was only 20 and of course had to wait a year till she turned 21 to get her permit. In SC the course is good for serveral years after you take it but I'm sure each state is different.

    Most states allow those under the required age to go ahead and take the classes. They are just that, classes, and the certificate is good for life.

    States differ

    Do check YOUR state law. If I remember correctly the Tennessee course was only good for six months. Of course that was a long while ago when I took the course.

    Correct for TN. Still only good for 6 months. Check local laws in Kansas to see how it works there!

    I was able to do this in NC. I took the course a few months before I turned 21. The next business day after I turned 21, I went and applied for my permit.

    In MN the class certificate is good for a year. The only legal snag could be whether or not it's legal for you to possess a handgun during the class, assuming your class has a shooting component, or possess/buy handgun ammo.
