Why a CPL class Preparation Program?   

The applicant shall sign the statement on the application certifying that he or she has completed at least three hours of review of the required training and has had at least one hour of firing range time in the six months immediately preceding the renewal application.  Meaning your training should meet current initial applicant standards.  It should and we can help !!

1. Your Responsibility -  The applicant is accepting the responsibility and liability that is attached to the CPL.

2.  No standardized written test:  The state of Michigan does not require or supply instructors with a firearms law written test. Therefore under that process there is no way to measure the knowledge of the applicant.  With the CPL Preparation Program  we can measure the applicants knowledge and the ability to apply that to CPL laws.  


3. Little to no prior training:  Most people come to class with little or no prior training regarding the CPL and use deadly force in self defense.


4. The preparation programs will extend the training time up to to 12 hours without increasing costs: When you consider the responsibility involved, 8 hours is not much time. 

5. Convenient format: The on line academic programs can be completed from the convince of your computer and are included in the price of the class.
