Do you want to become a sports shooter? Are you an arms collector? Or, are you interested in a career as a security guard, border services officer or for the ENAP? You need to take this training.
In fact, according to the Firearms Act, any individual who wants to acquire restricted firearms and work in the field of security or customs must take the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) and the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC), and pass the exams.
The competency test is mandatory for shooters who use restricted firearms and who want to join a shooting club. [Section 46.42]
The same applies for owners of a restricted firearm who want to renew their membership to a shooting club and who have not practiced the sport of target shooting for at least one year. [Article 46.29]
Since the adoption of the first safety regulation by the Ministry of Public Security in November 1985, one of the requirements for shooting clubs is to have a range officer on the firing line during all activities that use restricted or prohibited firearms.
The role of the range officer is essential. Insurance coverage for shooters and shooting clubs requires that range officers enforce the rules of the club and the requirements of the different governments.
The range officer is responsible for the safety of shooters and spectators at the shooting range.
The aim of the course is to provide adequate training to individuals who wish to be involved and act with regards to safety on sites where non-restricted and restricted firearms are used.
The Quebec Shooting Federation was formed in 1974 at the request of the government to make the link with athletes and authorities.

In 2011, the Department of Public Safety and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police assigned the administration of the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC).
