We're certified! Firearms Safety Courses for Nunavut are on the way.

Well, it’s been a long time coming but we are finally certified to teach the Canadian Firearms Safety Course in Nunavut!We were hoping that the so-called “Common Sense” Firearms Licensing Act would allow instructors that are currently certified to teach the course in one jurisdiction to deliver it in any other jurisdiction. This is a federally developed program that is overseen by the RCMP. To us it makes no sense that instructors are limited to teaching in one region but it looks like we'll have to wait for this aspect of the legislation to change.In the mean time, we have been working to expand our teaching certifications to other regions. Currently, we are able to teach in the NWT, Yukon, Nunavut and Alberta.John and I will be touring the Sahtu region of the NWT this month, offering the CFSC in all five communities.If you or your organisation would like to discuss having the course delivered in your community, get in touch asap! We’re already making bookings into the new-year.aim4safety

    This is really great. They need to have more firearm safety courses. I think it gives people a chance to see that you really can be safe with a firearm. A lot of schools have been teaching their teachers about how to protect their students and practice gun safety. I think that is wonderful. There are a lot of people that are fearful of guns for many reasons. I think there needs to be something to show them that they aren’t as bad as everyone says they are.
