Idaho: Washington Recognizes Reciprocity with Idaho’s Enhanced Concealed Carry License
Last week, Washington state announced that it would now recognize reciprocity with Idaho’s enhanced concealed carry weapons (CCW) license. This reciprocity agreement marks a major milestone for Idaho enhanced CCW license holders. With the addition of Washington, thirty states now honor Idaho CCW or enhanced CCW licenses.
Please remember that carry license holders must comply with the laws in every state they are traveling. Please note several states recognize Idaho concealed carry licenses in addition to those listed at the above link; however, those states do not have an official agreement with Idaho at this time.

For the ignorant, just what does "enhanced" mean, and what does it get you?
I read both of those before I asked the question.
Please explain, in words of one syllable, just how the "enhanced" CCW differs, and what, if any, additional benefits it conveys.
Sorry to be so dense, but I have not seen an explanation. Either that or I am too dumb to grasp it, or I missed it.
I would go to the authority directly to make sure the definition is accurate. Try reaching out directly to the source:

This may help as well:
In order to obtain an “enhanced” concealed carry license under 18-3302K, applicants must: (1) be 21 years of age or older; (2) be a legal resident of Idaho for at least six consecutive months; (3) provide fingerprints and submit to a state and federal criminal and mental health background check; (4) complete a qualifying handgun course, including instruction on safe and responsible use of handguns, instruction on Idaho firearms law from a licensed member of the Idaho Bar, and live fire training of at least 98 rounds; and (5) not be prohibited by either federal or state law from possessing a firearm.
Everything but a definition ... I give up, it was only of academic interest, anyway.
