“If a person has been in the military and can prove he has been trained in the use of firearms, is he exempt from taking classes in order to carry a concealed firearm?”
– Mike Rhinelander
The answer to this question was supplied by the Wisconsin Department of Justice website:
“A person is exempt from having to take a concealed weapon course if they have documentation that they completed military, law enforcement or security training that gave the individual experience with firearms that is substantially equivalent to a concealed weapon course or program.
“In addition, a veteran is exempt if they have 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.”
