CAD $190.00


Whether you’re interested in applying for a Canadian firearms license, or are simply interested in learning more about gun safety, this is the course for you. It’s one of Silvercore's most popular classes and the first step for those looking to get into target shooting, hunting, a career in law enforcement, the outdoor sector or the movie industry.

Designed with the absolute beginner in mind, our RCMP approved course curriculum covers non-restricted (long guns) firearms in the most efficient manner available. This course is offered over two consecutive days and includes testing. Passing this course is a federal requirement to apply for your non-restricted Possession and Acquisition License (PAL).

For those seeking an even deeper understanding of firearm operation and safety, we also offer CFSC / CRFSC Online Theory. You will have the option to add the Online Theory course for an additional $24 at checkout, for a $35 savings.* Selecting this option also guarantees you a free retest. Purchasing the Online Theory course is optional and not a requirement prior to your course, although students who select this option on average score higher than those who don't.

* Must be purchased at the same time as your in-person course to redeem discounted rate
