We realize time is at a premium today and that’s why we’ve adapted our Minnesota permit training and put the classroom portion online for your convenience. We have served thousands of permit holders with our online course since it was introduced on July 4th 2009.

This is our latest version of the  online / Hybrid Carry Course which requires approximately 2.5 to 3 hours of self study, take and pass 3 short online quizzes on the content presented in the course and an in-person Range Qualification Exercise. It has been UPDATED FOR ALL NEW LAWS PASSED by the Minnesota Legislature in  2015.

You’ll have short quizzes  you must complete at the end of each of the modules and 90 days  to complete the course. The range session consists of 25 rounds (your gun and your ammo) fired from approximately 15-21 feet at a target area approx. 8.5″ x 11″. You must handle the firearm safely and hit 70% of consecutive shots in the center of mass (the 8.5″ x 11″ area).

We usually hold our range qualifications every Thursday in Isle, and every other week in Farmington. We will try to accommodate other dates if you find our schedule to be inconvenient.

This course is good for  both: Your Minnesota permit and your Minnesota permit renewal.  Once you order this product, we will contact via e-mail and phone (if necessary) with detailed instructions for taking the course. We offer a steep discount for renewals!

This course is taught by a certified instructor (Jason Shade)  from a BCA approved organization. The same BCA approved courseware we deliver in our brick and mortar courses is now available online for your convenience!

Out of state applicants can now take this portion of the course online before coming to Minnesota to complete the range exercise and to apply for your permits.


You must have a fast Internet connection (DSL or better), and know how to operate a computer / use the internet. 

New: Our presentation plays on: Desktop PCs and Apple O/S, Ipad, iPhone, Android phone and tablets!

Students must also be of good moral character and not be disqualified under Minnesota law from owning firearms.



  • When we receive your order, we will add you to the online student group
  • We will then send you an e-mail with a file containing the instructions on how to access the online class.
  • Follow the instructions and contact us when you have completed all modules.
