Timetable of Canadian Firearms Safety Courses & Exams

Firearms courses are usually scheduled once a month on a weekend. Please contact me for more information.

8:30am to 5:30pm

The non-restricted part of the course (long guns). This is the regular "Canadian Firearms Safety Course" (CFSC) and if you are not interested in handguns, this is all you need.

CFSC testing is Saturday evening. You must pass the CFSC test to do the handgun course.

9:00 to 4:00pm
The "handgun" part of the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC). You must take and have passed the CFSC to attend this session, or have taken it in the past 30 days. (in Ontario must be over 18 to take the CRFSC exam)
4:00pm to 6:00pm
The testing portion of the Restricted Firearms Safety Courses.

* If you have a firearms prohibition order you cannot take the course(s) until after your prohibition order has expired.

Subscribe to the course waiting list 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 days, 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.Check out what my students have to say in these testimonials.

A couple of times a year I may teach a CFSC in Limoges over a Thursday evening and all day on the following Sunday. If you have a group of people who want just the long gun course, get in touch with me to discuss scheduling possibilities. I do not teach classes during weekdays.
