I-1639 Firearms Safety Training Certification


Purchase our “Buddy Pass” ticket if you’d like to bring a friend and SAVE on the price for each of you!

In addition to I-1639 Firearm Safety Training being offered here as a stand-alone course, we include it in our Multi-State Permit courses — at no additional cost.  Information regarding the combined course is available here.  We offer I-1639 Firearm Safety Training as a stand alone course for folks that don’t need/want a multi-state permit.


In 2018, the voters of Washington State approved WA Initiative 1639 which, among other things, requires the successful completion of an approved firearm safety training course by all residents wanting to purchase ANY semi-automatic rifle (including rifles like the Ruger 10/22). If you would like to read a summary of I-1639 prepared by Washington Policy Center please click here, click here for the full text of the initiative.

Kaery Concealed has designed I-1639 Firearm Safety as a special course to not only meet, but to far exceed the state-mandated requirements.

Course Topics (as prescribed in Initiative-1639):
Basic firearms safety rules
Firearms and children including secure gun storage and talking to children about gun safety
Firearms and suicide prevention
Secure gun storage to prevent unauthorized access and use
Safe handling of firearms
State and federal firearms laws, including prohibited firearms transfers

No live-fire and no test required.

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be issued proof of training that satisfies all of the I-1639 training requirements.

This is a terrific opportunity for citizens who would like more information about Initiative 1639 and how it will impact their future.

Is I-1639 here to stay or will it be overturned in the courts?  Although most responsible firearm owners are sickened by the passing of this severely restrictive initiative, the National Rifle Association is advising Washington residents to prepare to live with the initiative for a minimum of five years while some of the laws enacted by the initiative are challenged through the courts.  Most legal experts maintain that although a few sections of the initiative may be thrown out, the majority of the sections will remain part of WA law — particularly the training requirement addressed by courses such as this.

Because we are the first training academy in our area to offer an I-1639 compliant course, we strongly encourage signing up for the course well in advance as these classes have been filling up long before the class date.

Pay once and train as often as you like for free!  As with all Kaery Concealed courses, refresher courses are free, and every course comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back.  The text of I-1639 states that this training course must be repeated every 5 years — which means if you take the course through Kaery Concealed, you will pay for the course one time and you will be able to retake the course at no charge.


There are no prerequisites for this course.

Snacks & drinks for yourself (there’s no vending onsite)
Notebook and writing utensils – if you’re the note taking type
any other comfort items – feel free to bring anything you need to be comfortable
coffee and water provided



Because we believe in the quality of our instruction and the quality of courses we offer, each course is backed by a 100% money-back guarantee. If, upon course completion, you believe that you didn’t get your money’s worth, we will issue to you a full refund. The only question we will ask is, “How did we fail you?”

At Kaery Concealed, we are committed to training. That means we invite our students to retake previously attended courses as refreshers AT NO COST.  No strings attached.  This is a great deal for the I-1639 certification because the text of I-1639 states that this training course must be repeated every 5 years — which means if you take the course through Kaery Concealed, you will pay for the course one time and you will be able to retake the course when it’s time to update your certification at no charge.

While we do not offer refunds, we are happy to move your registration to a different class.
