For me, it cost $50 for an 8 Hour laws, safety and qualification course. $100 paid to the sheriff's department for photographs, finger prints and a federal background check.
3 weeks later I picked my certificate up at the police station which I took to the DMV and had my endorsement placed on a non-drivers license for a cost of $12.
Total cost: $162
Total time: 3 weeks and 8 Hours plus months of finally deciding what CCW piece(s) I was ultimately going to carry. Glock 22 and a Ruger LCP.
