There is no option to take in person course in Minnesota. Company will not respond back to my multiple tickets / inquires. I am unable to take the full course and want my money back. To add insult to injury, every time I want to check to see if the in person portion is being offered i have to retake the course exam.

I have never been able to get in touch with anyone to schedule the shooting range part of this class. The phone numbers go no where. When I email, it shoots back an automatic reply that says someone will contact me within 24 hours. Nada thing. Very disappointed in this scam and Groupon. DO NOT BUY!!!

The MN hybrid class was not bad other than the fact it took them almost 2 weeks to get the video to actually work for me. By that time my scheduled range time had come and gone. When they did finally get the video to work the next available range time was 2 months out. If you’re going to take this to renew I suggest going elsewhere unless you have 2-3 month to kill. Range is only in Maple Grove.
