We run courses on weekends. The CFSC is taught on Saturday and the CRFSC on Sunday. Those taking CFSC only will complete the course by Saturday evening.
The course & exam lengths are such that we strongly advise against making other plans for the evenings on the weekend you are attending the course.
The completion of the CFSC and the related exam is required for individuals that wish to possess or purchase a firearm for any purpose in Canada. The course provides instruction on the safe handing, transportation, display and storage of non-restricted firearms.
The completion of the CRFSC and the related exam is required for individuals that wish to possess or purchase a restricted firearm for any purpose in Canada. This course provides instruction on the safe handing, transportation, display and storage of restricted firearms.
NOTE: You must be 18 years of age to take the CRFSC exam (minors may still take the course for educational purposes).
