The training provided in the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) prepares students with beginner-level knowledge on the responsibilities of possessing and using restricted firearms such as handguns, including revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. The course focuses on the safe use, handling, and legal requirements for the possession, transportation, and storage of restricted firearms.

If you are interested in firearms safety, acquiring or possessing a restricted firearm, or work which involves the use of restricted firearms (movies and acting, outdoor careers, armed guard or law enforcement), this is an excellent foundational course. Successful completion of this course is also the legal requirement to apply for a federal restricted firearms Possession and Acquisition license (RPAL).

Please note this course is restricted to adults (18+).
