The Canadian Firearms Safety Course Exam(s)



Whether you take the full course or just challenge the tests, the following information applies.

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.

If you wish to challenge the firearm exam(s), you can view the Canadian Firearms Safety Course Manual(s) and Video(s) on our site.
