Same. Read and follow this: http://www.riversidesheriff.org/ccw/newapps.asp

And within that, read this: http://www.riversidesheriff.org/ccw/qualify.asp

Wonder if they're requiring IDPA gear to pass the safety check???

Wearing ballistic vests and using shot timer....geez....

Failure of your gear (holster, mag holder & etc) to pass the safety check could mean no ccw!!!

I would happily wear a vest. Given that they probably get all manner of applicants, I'm sure they're concerned about liability. I bet you that they literally get people who just purchased their first handgun and have never fired it before.

The shot timer actually seems pretty basic to me. I'm sure there's a time requirement for at least some of the courses of fire.

Separate events. You will generally take the safety class after doing the range qual (IME). Scheduling dependent, of course. I've always qualified during the week, and done the class on a Saturday.

The range qual is a quick and simple practical exercise.

The safety class is a classroom lecture.

This is assuming you are completing these items through Riverside County.

You have the option to go to an outside source to complete both. Those outside sources are listed on Dvrjon's 2nd link.

I've done the private, outside source for the last 2 renewals. You show up early and do the qual with everyone else at the same time. They allow enough time for you to qualify with up to 6 guns (Riverside Co allows 6 on their permit). Once you are done with the qualifying run you go inside and check-in. You spend the requisite time in the classroom with the noobs and then you are on your way at the end of the day with the forms completed and everything done in one day at one time.

Worth. Every. Penny.

The following info is for training at Ben Clark as of November 2016
After your appointment, you can schedule the CCW class and qualification at Ben Clark if you wish (least expensive of all the schools). Of all the steps in this looooong process, setting up training was simple and quick.

IF you choose to do your CCW class and qualification at Ben Clark, it is ALL ON THE SAME DAY. You do the CCW class in the morning (about 8am to noon), and you do the qualification after lunch (1pm to 4pm). So bring your firearm(s), 50 rounds for each firearm, a holster, eye and ear protection. (BTW, they say the holster needs to have a backstrap, but there were many IWB with no backstraps and they didn't seem to care.

When you do your qualification at the Ben Clark range, you are REQUIRED to wear bulletproof vests, for good reason. They have some loaners there for you to use. If you have a vest of your own (or can borrow one from a buddy), bring it.

When I qualified at Ben Clark, there were A LOT of newbies there. I have been to many ranges over the years, and this is the only time I though I might get shot. At one point, the person next to me muzzle swiped my leg (the rangemaster grabbed the persons arm before I could even jump back). Another person wound up shooting the railroad ties that are 4+ feet below the target. That person was pulled off the line immediately, but still I was like "WTF?". Quite a few people there appeared to be VERY new to shooting. A third person took about four tries to qualify with one firearm (6 shots at 15, 10, and 7, must get 80% or at least 15 shots of the 18 hitting the silhouette.)

In all, the experience at Ben Clark is great. The instructors (Deputy Sheriffs) kept the class exciting and were EXTREMELY pro-CCW. If you already know how to shoot your weapon, and know firearm safety, this is the class for you. If you just bought your first firearm, you might want to take a different course.
