There are two classes of Firearms licenses: Non-restricted and Restricted which are available to civilians. To possess a firearm license with both privileges, you must take Canadian Firearms Safety Course (Non-Restricted) and Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (Restricted) course and must pass exams for each class with at least 80% mark. We offer courses for both the firearms classes and exams can be challenged in class after completion of the course on the same day.

This course is an introductory level course and provides license holders privileges of the non-restricted class of firearms. Non-restricted firearms are primarily manual repeating long guns: Rifles and Shotguns.
