Northern Lights Firearms Training, Inc.'s certified instructors have military and law-enforcement backgrounds and experience operating a wide variety of firearms.
These instructors work one-on-one with students during Northern Lights' training classes. The basic handgun-safety course introduces beginners to safe handling and storage principles and guides students through the mechanics of handguns and their ammunition. The concealed-carry course, on the other hand, is geared toward intermediate and advanced students. The class teaches shooting fundamentals, ethics, defensive gun use, and safety rules before culminating with a live-fire exercise. Upon successful completion, pupils are qualified to apply for a Minnesota concealed-carry permit.
