CANADIAN RESTRICTED FIREARMS SAFETY COURSE (CRFSC)
It is the responsibility of every shooter to know the federal, provincial and municipal laws, which apply when practicing this activity. Ignorance of existing laws is not an acceptable defence in a court of law. When people decide to shoot, they are expected to know the laws governing this activity and must obey them.
The Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) was conceived in collaboration with all provinces and territories as well as organisms with a particular interest in firearms training and restricted firearms safety. The course as been created by the Justice Ministry in 1994 to offer a training for safe manipulation, use, transport and display of restricted firearms. The course is generally of 8 hours, a whole day. YOU MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO COMPLETE THIS COURSE. There is no preliminary certification necessary to complete this course. You can either start with the CRFSC or CFSC, depending on class availabilities.
In accordance with the Firearms Act, a firearms safety course focusing on restricted firearms was developed and implemented on February 1, 1999. Individuals wishing to acquire restricted firearms must take the full classroom delivery of the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC), and pass all the tests.
