Exemption From the Practical Test

If you have already taken the CFSC you can be exempted from the practical examination of the CORE, but you must be able to supply your CFSC Course Report as proof, without this you will be required to complete the practical examination. Please note that a valid PAL (gun license) is NOT accepted as proof for exemption for the practical test as per BCWF regulations.
