Our facility is dedicated to firearms safety training and is located in a professional classroom setting, a former high school. Our class sizes are restricted to a maximum of 12 people. The smaller class size ensures personal instruction and hands on training with our lead instructor. We are setting the standard in firearms training. We teach firearms safety courses in the GTA.

Jan 15/16 - FULL - SUSPENDED
Jan 29/30 -FULL - STATUS UNKNOWN
Feb 12/13 - FULL - STATUS UNKNOWN
Feb 26/27 - Reserved
Available - means at least one seat remaining. Courses are filling fast.
Reserved - is currently for those students that have paid and we are confirming into new courses. Due to COVID many students had their courses cancelled.
WAITLIST-means that there are spaces on waitlist. Very rarely are students converted from waitlist to regular student.
FULL - means there is no room in the course and the waitlist is full.
If you don't see any future courses it's because there is nothing more planned at this time. We offer courses every month throughout the year. You will need to check the website for availability.
We don't add hundreds of people to the waitlist as it gives people a sense that they might get a spot in a course that will never materialize. If the listing does not indicate WAITLIST - please don't email us about being added. All courses and statuses are current on our registration page. We offer courses every month. We do not maintain generic waitlists at this time.
E-mails asking about the next course will get a generic autoresponder directing you back to our registration page. The demand is very high for the program due to COVID. E-mail asking for the next date will not be responded to.

The course is conducted in English - students will be introduced to a fair bit of new vocabulary. We recommend reading the electronic book or purchasing a book from the FSESO in advance of your course. The exam must be completed in either English or French (please verify that we have exams in stock) without assistance from a translator. The course is pass or fail, meaning that there is a standard which has to be met on written exam (80%) and the practical (hands on) exam (80%).
Online payment is the only method of payment.
No refunds will be provided for no-shows or those that fail the first day of the course. If you are unable to attend the course the course is transferrable to someone else. If you contact us we will try and place another student in your seat as we almost always have a waiting list. If you are sick or not feeling well please let us know as soon as possible and we will rebook you into a future course.
