Wisconsin Online Firearms Training

Welcome to American Firearms Training, your Wisconsin firearms training specialists.  Our innovative, fun, and professional course, Introduction to Pistol Safety will give you all the pistol safety knowledge you need to safely handle and manipulate a firearm.  The best part, the class is free!  That's right, at American Firearms Training, we believe so strongly in spreading the word about pistol safety that we are offering the class free of charge to anyone that wants to learn.

Introduction to Pistol Safety is taught by a State Certified Law Enforcement Instructor and takes about 90 minutes to complete.  The course is made up of 6 video sections, each of which is followed by a short quiz, and a final exam.  You may take the course as many times as you would like.

Although the state law in Wisconsin allows for online classes that fulfill the training requirement to apply for a concealed carry permit (if taught by the correct instructor), the Wisconsin Department of Justice has levied administrative rules that require face-to-face contact for training.  This has been done in dereliction to the letter and spirit of the law and, unfortunately, will keep this course from qualifying you in Wisconsin.  If you feel that this doesn't represent your opinion, give your representative a call!
