Dave Bartlett - Firearms Instructor
Canadian Firearms Safety Courses are scheduled once a month. Canadian Firearms Safety Course and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course examinations are available in both English and French and can be conducted weekday evenings by appointment. Class size is limited to ten students per instructor to ensure that you get the attention and hands on practice you need to master firearms safety and pass the tests, in keeping with the standards set by the Firearms Safety Education Service of Ontario. I usually teach the CFSC and CRFSC over one weekend with the assistance of another instructor to classes of twenty students in the Ottawa area.
Dave is also the founder and owner of www.FirearmsTraining.ca and the content developer for www.GunExams.com.
Dave Bartlett (Instructor #ON-0965), also taught the Canadian Defensive Pistol Shield course, and the International Practical Shooting Confederation "Black Badge" course for competitive action pistol shooters and the Canadian Shooting Sports Association Handgun Safety Course, and has acted as a senior official at various National and Provincial shooting competitions. He is also trained by the Universal Shooting Academy as a Practical Pistol Instructor and by the Remington Shooting School in shotgunning. Dave also offers IPSC shooting clinics for those who are looking for more personalized instruction in the fine points of action pistol shooting, when his schedule permits.My next available CFSC/CRFSC will be in September near Greely. Sign up for the mailing list to be informed when registration opens for future courses.
I send out notices with detailed instructions on how to sign up for a course when registration opens (about one month before the course date). My courses usually sell out within a few hours, so subscribing to my mailing list is the best way to be informed of upcoming courses. A seat on a course is not confirmed until payment in full is received before the course date.
On June 2nd, 2012, the Firearms Safety Education of Ontario decreed that instructors are not permitted to conduct the CRFSC (handgun) test for youth under the age of 15 years. Youth can still take the CRFSC course but they cannot be tested in Ontario until their 15th birthday.
