 (HGTS) is an outside provider of training that uses the Bass Pro Facility.   We are not employed by or act as an agent for Bass Pro Shops. 

Things you should know: 


The renewal applicant 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.


The renewal qualification standards should be the same as for the initial applicant.  Therefore, we use the same 3 hour classroom block of training and range skills for all both initial and renewal.  This allows renewal applicants to attend our initial CPL classes.


There are 2 methods to complete a CPL renewal class.

1.  The on-line computer training course includes: 

3 hours of “required” training with a 60 question test is completed on a computer.

The user submits the test to me to be corrected and I send it back to the user.

A certificate of completion is sent with the test.  Support documents are enclosed to be used as necessary.

Live fire range can be done with an instructor or by yourself.

The applicant can attend the range portion of any of our CPL classes to complete the requirements.

If the applicant elects to do the shooting part by themselves, a range course of fire and certification form (in support documents) is to be completed by you and the range operator.


2.  Classroom Training:  For those that like the live classroom format

The applicant has the choice of attending two class presentations

1. Attend a scheduled CPL course and complete the renewal part in the class.

2. Attend a CPL renewal only class

Live fire requirement

The live fire portion can be done on your own or with an instructor.  Your skills should be able meet initial CPL applicant skill requirements. 

If you plan on doing the live fire portion on your own.  At least one hour at the range - means the ability to demonstrate safe handgun operation and place shots on a 8.5 x 11 size paper at distances of up to 21 ft.  see range module.
