The Canadian Firearms Safety Course
The Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) is a basic firearms safety training course. It is designed to give the student a working knowledge of safe firearms handling and familiarity with the laws and procedures regarding gun ownership in Canada. Following the firearms training even complete novices should have no problem passing the required examinations.
The CFSC is designed so that those who have never handled guns will gain a good understanding of the subject. Students who have experience find the course to be a great refresher, and excellent preparation for the Canadian Firearms Safety Examination. Very experienced gun owners who have taken the course comment, with some surprise, that they learned lots and enjoyed the course!
There are actually two separate courses - one for non-restricted and the other for restricted firearms. The two courses can be run as a combined course, eliminating hours of overlap from the agenda. Those not interested in "restricted" firearms would be finished after the CFSC part of the training; the others would continue for about five more hours of the CRFSC.
This is a classroom training course, there is no actual shooting. There is however, ample opportunity to handle various kinds of rifles, shotguns and handguns (all of which have been disabled so they cannot fire). Please note that no live ammunition is permitted in the classroom.
