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 using the ACTS and PROVE methodology. If you can prove that you have successfully completed the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (please bring a copy of RCMP Course Report Form 5484e with you), then you will be exempt from the practical test. A PAL is no longer a valid exemption under BC law.

More information about CORE courses and tests


Please note

All participants must bring government-issued photo I.D. to the course.

Please do not bring any firearms or ammunition.

The test is open to everyone aged 10 years and older. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult, and will not be eligible to sit the restricted exams.


The Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) Program is British Columbia's Hunter Education Program. If you wish to hunt in BC, you must pass the CORE exams and obtain a Fish & Wildlife I.D. This two-day program is also great for anyone interested in outdoor recreation.
