  • The course material was highly organized. The chapters were really easy to read and the presenter was very clear throughout. I learned the material through the chapters, but taking the quizzes was key to solidify the acquired knowledge. I could not be more ready. I love the experience! Worth every penny! Thank you!!

  • I was a S.A.F.E instructor in Saskatchewan for 18 years prior to moving to B.C. I rate the CORE course very high and found it consistent to what is taught in Sk. Easy to see the cooperation between provinces to ensure a solid Hunter Ed/Firearm Safety program.
