Firearms License PAL For Armed Guard Work and Job Opportunities

Armed Security Licencing

The PAL (Firearms License) For Armed Guard Work and other Job Opportunities

Start With The CFSC / CRFSC

The first step to working in armed security is to take the Canadian Firearms Safety Course & The Restricted Safety Course. These are abbreviated as CFSC / CRFSC.

Where can I take the CFSC or the CRFSC?

BC Firearms Academy offers the CFSC / CRFSC regularly throughout the lower mainland of BC. Our most active locations are: New Westminster, Serving Vancouver, Burnaby, Delta and Surrey and Abbotsford, Serving Langly, Chilliwack, Mission and Maple Ridge.

What is the cost of getting the PAL?

With BC Firearms Academy, the CFSC & CRFSC combined course is $205 +tax. Once you have completed the testing successfully, the RCMP collects an $80 processing fee for the licences.

What does PAL stand for?

PAL stands for Possession and Acquisition License. It is renewable every 5 years. As a general rule, applicants must have passed the Canadian Firearms Safety Course in order to obtain one. Both the restricted and non-restricted courses and licenses must be obtained in order to be employed for most road jobs.

Do I need a special license to drive your vehicles?

You require a regular “G” license in Ontario, a “Class 3” for Quebec and a “Full Class 5” for all other Provinces. Employees may be trained in various job functions including driving.

What are the requirements to work as an armoured car guard in Canada?

Requirements include but are not limited to: a clean driver’s abstract, physical fitness to lift varying weights of cash & coin, a clean background check and the willingness to wear a uniform and abide by uniform & appearance policies.
