Michigan CPL Renewal - 4 Hours

Michigan law requires a current CPL holder to complete the renewal process prior to their CPL expiring.  The applicant does not have to take a course, but the State of Michigan requires, "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".

Because of this requirement Range 517 provides a 4 hour class with 3 hours of classroom review and 1 hour of range time.  The review will be both taught by an certified instructor and video presentation.  Even though applicants do not have to take a course we provide this package for applicants to assist them in fulfilling the renewal process.  The student will receive a certificate and receipt showing completion of the 3 hour review and 60 minute range time.
