This is the course required for your Canadian Firearms Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL).
The RCMP Canadian Firearms Program requires full course participation to meet the prerequisite classroom hours
in order for Silvercore to allow an individual to sit the CFSC/CRFSC tests.
*If this course is purchased in conjunction with our online theory training, you will receive guaranteed re-write protection. We are so confident in our online theory training that we will provide you a FREE retest if you are unsuccessful. Without this option, you will be required to pay $60 for a complete retest in the event of failure. Simply add the on-line theory course to your cart before you complete the cart check-out for this course.*
Please note that the RCMP CFP requires that all retests be written within 7 days of the original test.
Silvercore Advanced Training Systems provides a unique system for the CFSC and CRFSC course. Many training companies provide a separate course for the non-restricted and restricted portions of the curriculum hiding the total cost for a full firearms licence.
Silvercore has been offering the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and Restricted Firearms Safety Course since 1994 and is responsible for training many of the active instructors in BC.
