What kind of training is required to get a license?

In an application for a license, an individual must include proof of having received
firearm training. The proof of training requirement may be met by any of the
following:

A copy of a document, or an affidavit from an instructor or organization
that conducted the course or program, that indicates that the individual
completed any of the following (but see note below):


• The hunter education program established by the Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) or a substantially similar program that is established by
another state, country, or province and that is recognized by DNR.

• A firearms safety or training course that is conducted by a national or state
organization that certifies firearms instructors.

• A firearms safety or training course that is available to the public and is
offered by a law enforcement agency

• A firearms safety or training course that is taught by an instructor who is
certified by a national or state organization that certifies firearms instructors
or by an instructor certified by DOJ, and that is available to the public and
offered by any of the following: a technical college, a college or university, a
private or public institution or organization, or a firearms training school.

• A firearms safety or training course that is offered to law enforcement officers
or to owners and employees of licensed private detective and security
agencies.

• A firearms safety or training course that is conducted by a firearms instructor
who is certified by a national or state organization that certifies firearms
instructors or who is certified by DOJ.

Documentation that the individual completed military, law enforcement, or
security training that gave the individual experience with firearms that is
substantially equivalent to a course or program described above.

A current or expired license, or a photocopy of a current or expired license, that
the individual holds or has held that indicates that the individual is licensed or has
been licensed to carry a firearm in this state or in another state or in a county or
municipality of this state or of another state unless the license has been revoked
for cause.

Documentation of completion of small arms training while serving in the U.S.
armed forces as demonstrated by an honorable discharge or general discharge
under honorable conditions or a certificate of completion of basic training with a
service record of successful completion of small arms training and certification.

Wis. Stat. § 175.60(4)(a).

IMPORTANT NOTE: DOJ is currently in the rule-making process and is evaluating
what information will be required on the certificate to substantiate proof of
training. We will not have specifics until the rule-making process is complete.
