    Conceal and carry class certificate

    My wife and I took the conceal and carry class about a year ago in Oklahoma. Is there anything we can do if we lost the certificate. I really don't want to have to take the class again. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Contact the instructor. They are required to retain all certificates. They should be able to issue a duplicate. Hopefully yo know when the class was.

    First off, welcome to the forum.

    As to your training certificate, you will need to contact the instructor who gave your course. According to the Oklahoma Self Defense Act booklet, you must submit the original certificate of training. Duplicate or copies are not accepted. If he can not provide you with an original certificate, then you have no option other than retaking the course.

    When I took my class, I was concerned about the possibility of misplacing or losing my certificate--and that piece of paper is quite valuable to me. So, when I got home, I scanned it into my computer. Now, I have a copy of that document anytime I need it. Because it is scanned, I can email it ASAP to whomever requires it.

    I have found scanning to be an excellent solution (for me) that avoids the "where the heck is that document?" scramble that can occur. While hard copy documents have a disturbing tendency to grow legs, I can find my digital documents quickly in the designated folder that is their home.

    I would also prefer to make extra copies immediately and store them in a fireproof safe, just in case you lose the certificate. Better to be proactive than reactive.

    Oklahoma law specifically says it must be original. Copies and duplicates are not allowed for obtaining a permit.

    In some states there is a time line between class and permit application,IIRC Texas requires you apply for a CHL within one year of class,or you have to take the class over

    CT is original only and the date is 1 year.

    the NRA no longer sells the certs separately, so the instructor will have paperwork that you took the class
    but will have to charge more than the traditional few dollars to replace a certificate.

    more than that, a instructor may have you to re-take the exam (its open book...) to insure you are
    prepared for your chat with the local Chief. afterall, its his name on the cert also and you don't want
    to make him look bad, do ua now?

    Why not put it in a safe deposit box at your bank along with all of your other valuable documents? Keep a copy for your wallet to show when necessary and maybe another copy or two in a safe and convenient place around the house as back ups.

    Two years on the original class and and proficiency, 6 months on renewal. It is rule 6:12. However like in the OP's state it must be an original certificate. For anyone who has taken our class, I can tell you when you took the class, and get a new certificate if you happen to loose yours. In fact a guy came in today and needs his replaced. Personally, I think folks should be more responsible, but hey it happens.

    (1) Evidence of proficiency. The applicant must submit evidence of proficiency, as defined by §6.11 of this title (relating to Proficiency Requirements) reflecting the successful completion of a handgun proficiency course approved by the department and taught by a certified handgun instructor. Evidence of proficiency submitted by an original applicant will not be accepted by the department if it is more than two years old. Evidence of proficiency submitted by a renewal applicant will not be accepted by the department if it is more than six months old.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
