With renewals for the Iowa Permit to Carry Weapons fast approaching in the next year, we have scheduled a variety of courses to meet your training needs. Most of our courses are 4-hrs in length to more easily accommodate busy schedules, additionally we also offer the live-fire re-qualification session which takes about an hour, as well as full-day courses for students who want/need more training.
The renewal permit requires that the applicant complete training or re-qualify – please read IA Code 724.9 & 724.11 – https://www.legis.iowa.gov/DOCS/ACO/IC/LINC/Chapter.724.pdf
Training or live-fire re-qualification must take place within 12 months of the permit expiring. Furthermore, applicants must apply at least 30 days prior to the permit expiring – I recommend applying 6 weeks before your permit expires. This gives you about a 10 month window to complete your training. If your permit expires March 2, 2016 for example, complete you training prior to the middle of January, and consider applying for your renewal permit before the end of January. This will ensure that your renewal application is processed before your permit expires.
We will schedule additional courses and frequently run private training courses for our students. For additional information about any of our training options we are just a phone call or email away and we look forward to answering your questions – firstname.lastname@example.org / 5l5-23l-3887
