Firearms Safety (PAL & RPAL) Course

In order to possess or acquire firearms in Canada, you must hold a valid Possession & Acquisition License (PAL/RPAL). In order to be eligible to apply for a PAL/RPAL, you must successfully complete the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC/CRFSC) and the associated tests.

Our Firearms Safety Course combines both non-restricted (CFSC/PAL) and restricted (CRFSC/RPAL) programs into one economical, efficient, student-friendly course which is perfect for absolute beginners as well as people with some experience.

No experience or pre-reading is necessary - we will teach you everything you need to know in a straight-forward and interesting way, and we provide plenty of hands-on practice.

This course includes the required tests, and we will provide you with the PAL/RPAL application pack.

Topics include

  • Firearms Evolution
  • Terminology
  • Action types
  • Firearms safety rules & practices
  • Ammunition
  • Safe firearms operation, loading, unloading & handling
  • Laws & regulations
