This class is the full 8 hour State approved Enhanced Handgun course.  Those who complete this course can obtain the Enhanced Handgun permit issued by Tennessee. 

The law has changed effective January 1, 2020.  You may take an online course that is about 1.5 to 3 hours long and then obtain a Concealed Only Handgun Permit - that allows you to carry concealed only and restricts where one may carry.    The online classes cost anywhere from $20 to $40 depending on where you take it.   I am unable at this time to address Reciprocity on this site - my research shows most states have not updated their reciprocity based on the new law.  The law, however made assumptions that those obtaining the Concealed Only permit probably would not be traveling out of State.

The regular Tennessee Handgun Carry class is about 8 hours long.   Successfully completing this class enables you to obtain an Enhanced Handgun permit that allows either concealed or open carry and is less restrictive about where to carry.  This permit is addressed in the Reciprocity maps. 

My Handgun Carry class costs $50.

In either case you have to pay a fee to the state to obtain your permit after the class.
