There are companies and individuals, not associated to the FSESO, who advertise on line to provide you with Firearms Safety Training Courses. These persons ARE NOT certified by the Chief Firearms Office of Ontario to teach and test the Canadian Firearms Safety Courses.
You should ensure you are dealing only with a Chief Firearms Office certified Firearms Instructor and Examiner before registering for any courses or examinations. Ask the instructor or examiner if they are designated by the Chief Firearms Office of Ontario to be a firearms instructor and/or examiner. F.S.E.S.O. instructors are the only Firearms Safety Instructors approved by the Chief Firearms Office of Ontario to instruct or provide testing for these courses for the purposes of an individual wishing to obtain their P.A.L.
