Welcome To Our Site

The Mission of the Firearm Centre is to provide firearms training, professional instruction and examination of the Canadian Fiearms Safety Course and Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course for firearm owners and users. Our highly knowledgeable and trained instructors have conducted testing since 1996 throughout Alberta and the United States and take pride in the high level of instruction they offer. Our home office is located in Calgary, Alberta but our instructors will travel throughout the Province if the numbers are sufficient.


The Canadian Firearms Safety Course Exam(s)


The Non-Restricted Course and the Restricted Course each have a written and practical portion to the exam. You are required to obtain a minimum of 80% to pass each portion. In the practical exam, you will handle three different types of firearms in various situations. You must do your ACTS and PROVES each time you handle a firearm. If you point a firearm at any person during the practical exam, you will fail this portion and will not be able to proceed further until such time as you re-take the test.
