Canadian Firearms Safety Training and Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course

This course is mandatory for anyone wishing to possess or acquire a Restricted Firearm.

Restricted firearms include all handguns, some rifles and shotguns.

Persons who wish to take the restricted firearms safety course under the age of 18 can do so, for educational purposes only. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to take the testing. Once they turn 18, they are required to take the course again and pass the testing to qualify for a restricted license.

The restricted firearms course concentrates on the safe handling, loading, unloading, transportation, and storage of restricted firearms. Restricted rifles and shotguns essentially operate the same as Non restricted rifles and shotguns therefore the students will already be familiar with the Safe Handling Practices for these firearms, having already taken the Non Restricted Course.

This course takes approximately 8 hours to complete and there is a fee charged.
