Restricted PAL (CFRSC): Is available to anyone who has already completed the CFSC (Non-Restricted PAL Course) and is 18 years of age and older.

• Instructions on how to pick up, handle and carry restricted firearms safely

• Descriptions of how to unload, load and fire restricted firearms safely

Course starts at 9:00 AM and ends around 6:00 PM

This includes breaks, instruction, and testing.  If you test first you could be out at around 4:30pm, if you test last you could be out closer to 6pm.

Tardiness will not be tolerated, if you are running a few minutes late and notify us we will wait.  Otherwise, once class starts you will not be allowed to attend, and no refund offered.
There is a written and practical exam at the end of the course. 80%+ is a pass
The written test is all multiple choice
The practical is a hands on test, that goes through safe handling procedures
Basic English (reading and speaking gr 7 level) is a MUST. No translators are allowed
The class group is not graded on a curve, and tests are not averaged out
Strongly recommended to review the student manual in advance of the course, a copy can also be mailed out prior for an additional $45. Sometimes used manuals are available at a discount, inquire for details. Follow the link above to view the manual in a PDF format for free.

Any version of government issued ID is acceptable (drivers license, passport, birth certificate, health card, etc.). Your Non-Restricted PAL is also required. We understand that sometimes things may go missing the day you need them, if you don't have your physical PAL card with you that is OK. We will take your word that you have it. REMEMBER if you take the Restricted course without having taken and passed the Non-Restricted course, it will not be valid.
Space is limited, registration is based on a first come first serve basis. Maximum student attendance depends on instructors present (1-24 participants per day), once funds are received your spot is confirmed. Course cost depends on location. All funds are Non-Refundable for any reason, however a participant can give their spot to someone else if required.

Min age 18.

We enjoy a very low fail rate (single digits out of over 250 courses). The main reasons a fail is achieved, is by cheating, being on ones phone for the entire course, not reviewing in advance or there is a language barrier.

IF you are unsuccessful, you have 7-days to make an appointment to retest.  There is a $25 charge plus gst for a retest.

If you lose your paperwork after completing and passing the course, there is a $50 fee to pull up your file. We only look for lost paperwork for up to two years. Call 1-800-731-4000 to see if the RCMP have you on file. If you have a photo of your course report and only need an original made, the fee is $25. We require to know the year and month you took the course. If you have the exact date you took the course available, that will move things faster!
