In order to hunt in BC, you must successfully complete the CORE (Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education) Tests. We offer CORE tests regularly at our Training Centre in Metchosin. Once you have passed the tests, you will be able to apply for a CORE certificate and then obtain a FWID (Fish & Wildlife I.D.) to purchase hunting licences.

The CORE Test consists of two parts:

  • written test consisting of 80 multiple choice questions which cover various topics including Conservation, Ethics, Firearms Safety, Outdoor Safety, First Aid, Rules & Regulations, Indigenous Hunting Rights, Animal & Bird Identification.
  • practical test where participants must be able to demonstrate the safe handling, loading and unloading of various non-restricted firearms actions. Please be sure that you are competent and confident in handling the following firearm action types using the ACTS and PROVE methodology: break action, bolt action, pump action, lever action, semi-automatic action.Practical test exemption: If you can prove that you have already successfully completed the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (non-restricted) you will be exempt from the practical test. PLEASE NOTE: In order to be exempt, you must bring a clear, legible copy of RCMP Course Report (non-restricted) Form 5484e. Possession of a PAL and/or proof of passing the CRFSC (restricted) is NOT sufficient to exempt you from the practical test.
