Under current Washington Law resulting from the passage of Initiative 1639, Washington residents are required to take a poorly defined class covering 6 specific topics in order to purchase a semi-automatic rifle. This course is designed to address each of those 6 topics covered under the Revised Code of Washington.
We have designed this course to meet the minimum statutory requirements. We have added a few additional topics that we feel are extremely important. We believe firearms training is extremely important to the safe and responsible use of firearms, but should never be mandatory to exercise your Second Amendment right.
Upon completion of this course, you will print or save your Certificate of Completion (by printing the final certification page,) which when signed by the student, is valid for 5 years from the date of completion. The Department of Licensing has no method of tracking this information at this time, so keep your certificate in a safe place and only use a copy for any purchase. You are not required to show proof of training when purchasing a semi-automatic rifle, only attest under penalty of law that you have completed a course which covers the required topics.
Thank you, good luck and carry on. You’re joining 67,000 Washington citizens who have completed this course, free of charge, saving approximately $1,500,000 in training fees. Support your local gun shops, gun clubs and the Second Amendment.
