Renew Your Iowa CCW

     Concealed carry permits in Iowa must be renewed every five years, and the applicant must present proof of proficiency from within the last 12 months.  Several types of training will fulfill the requirements, one of the simplest is our entirely online course, Introduction to Pistol Safety.  For those renewing their permit, we are offering the course at half price, $24.99.  The class takes about 90 minutes, and is actually free, you need only purchase the certificate if you plan on renewing your permit.

Here are the steps involved:

1.  Take Introduction to Pistol Safety by clicking on the green button on the top right of this page.

2.  Purchase the course using the discount code renewiowa.

3.  Print out the Iowa Application for Permit to Carry Weapons.

4.  Present the two documents to your local sheriff's department, and include payment for $25.  Some departments have moved the process to the web, so you may want to call them to make sure that you don't need to make the trip.

That's all there is to it!  We have certainly enjoyed serving the people of Iowa for the last four years.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

If you have questions about our course, feel free to email us at  Make sure you include your name, the state whose permit you are pursuing, and if you need a call back, a phone number.  We're happy to help.
