Canadian Firearms Training

Firearms Training affiliated instructors conduct Canadian Firearms Safety Courses (CFSC), Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Courses (CRFSC) and the Exams for both courses. After the course, students will be able to comfortably and safely handle a wide variety of firearms, and will be familiar with current gun laws in Canada. In most provinces the Canadian Firearms Safety Course Exam(s) must be passed in order to get a Possession and Acquisition Licence - the actual course is optional.

If you are looking for this training as a condition of employment with CBSA, you need to successfully complete both courses, but you don't have to get your own firearms licence.

For someone relatively experienced with guns and not wanting to take the course, we allow the CFSC exam(s) to be challenged. As some of the methods taught in the courses are different from many other firearms safety courses, studying the manuals or online is an excellent idea even for experienced shooters and hunters.

Take a quick quiz at to see if you are ready to challenge the CFSC and/or CRFSC exam. - prepare online to challenge the Canadian Firearms Safety Course tests

If you possess firearms, you MUST have a valid Firearms Licence and (for Quebec residents) your firearms must be registered . Even now that the Long Gun Registry is eliminated you will still need a firearms licence to legally possess guns and to buy ammunition. It is NOT too late to get your firearms Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL)! The Canadian Firearms Centre is being reasonable with gun owners who get a PAL. It is not known how long this generosity will last, so act now! NEXT FIREARMS TRAINING CFSC PAGE
