Training for range officers
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 range officer on duty is responsible for the safety of persons practicing target shooting with firearms, as well as the safety of visitors and observers at the shooting range. The provincial safety regulation requires the presence of a range officer certified by the FQT to be able to use restricted firearms at the shooting range. The range officer on duty must know the safety rules specific to the club where they exercise their duties. It is the responsibility of the club to make sure of it.
