MN Training Requirements

Before you take our Permit to Carry courses for a Minnesota carry permit renewal class or if this is your first time getting a Minnesota concealed carry permit, this is what you need to know. 


  1. Getting a Minnesota carry permit requires a training class and a live-fire shooting test.  Upon successful completion of our class, you can then apply for your Minnesota Permit to Carry at your local Minnesota County Sheriffs Department.

  2. Sometimes called a Minnesota Multi-State carry permit, we will provide a comprehensive firearms training class that will provide the fundamentals in firearm safety, shooting, and basic firearm handling.  Because we are certified in Minnesota to conduct concealed carry permit classes, the training you receive from our Multi-State Permit to Carry courses will satisfy all requirements set forth by the state of Minnesota.

  3. In our classes we cover Minnesota laws, when it is LEGAL to use deadly force in the protection of yourself, others and your home and essential information you need in order to survive an attack.


What Do I Need to Do if My Minnesota Concealed Carry Permit is Going To Expire


  1. Licenses are good for 5 year but when it comes time to renew your permit you will need to take a certified Minnesota carry permit renewal class.

  2. You must present evidence that you have received training in the safe use of a pistol within one year of the date of an original or renewal application. (MN Statute 624.714 Subd. 2a)

  3. Renewing your Minnesota Carry Permit can not be done prior to 90 days of the expiration but must be done before the expiration. After the expiration date, but within 30 days after the expiration, you can renew your permit by paying an additional late fee of $10.00.
