This class meets the requirements for the CCW renewal training required by law in the state of Michigan*. It is a four hour course which includes one hour of live fire range time to be done on the day of class (you will need to bring your firearm, an extra magazine or speed loader, and at least 100 rounds of ammunition which may be purchased on site). This class also includes your passport quality photograph that you will need when you go to put your renewal application in at your county clerk’s office. The county gun boards of all 83 counties in Michigan have been notified of this class. At the conclusion of the class, you will receive a certificate of completion and an opportunity to purchase a copy of the textbook The Right to Carry: An Awesome Responsibility. The cost of this class is only $60. Check Calendar of Events for available dates.
* Please note that the State of Michigan law does NOT require you to take a class for your renewal training. The law simply states that you must sign a statement under penalty of law verifying that you have done three hours of review of your original training and that you have done one hour of live fire range time in the six months immediately preceding the date of your renewal application. This class is being provided as a convenience to those who wish to have documentation that they have met these requirements. There have also been many changes to Michigan’s CCW law which this class will also cover. Many individuals have also expressed that they believe that documented proof of continuing education in concealed carry would aid them in a court of law should they ever have to defend themselves with lethal force.
