Eric was a great teacher for my kids 10 and 12. kids really had fun in class and all communications were fast, friendly and professional. I have another daughter ready to take the test in two years. Will defiantly be using BC firearms academy.

Completed the CORE course with Eric and was thoroughly impressed by the amount of detail he was able to give while still making it easy to understand. Eric you have my best regards and I would highly recommend the BC Firearms Academy to anyone looking to do PAL/RPAL and CORE courses. 5 stars!!!

I completed the 2 day combined CFSC/CRFSC course for restricted and non-restricted firearms today and found it very informative; lots of hands of practice to help get the safe handling of the firearms down and to help tie in the theory taught in class. Eric did a fantastic job teaching everything you need to know about safe handling of firearms and his enthusiasm definitely makes you want to learn more! Highly recommended for anyone who's interested in firearms as a hobby to someone who wants to get serious in competition, hunting, or collecting!

I recently did my CORE with BC Firearms Academy and I was impressed! Eric was knowledgeable, friendly, and really worked to be entertaining in his presentation of the material. All of that adds up to making it easy and fun to learn! My thanks for an excellent experience! I'll gladly recommend you to others in the future.

I just finished my hunter safety course, Eric is a very good instructor and very funny. Made learning easier. Very knowledgeable and honest. I would recommend people that are interested in hunting to take this course.

I found B.C. Firearms Academy on the internet and had no previous experience with them. Best thing I ever did. I was looking for someone to teach me hands on shooting and I couldn't have done better than finding Eric. He's patient, friendly, helpful, very meticulous, reasonably priced and just a lot of fun to learn with ! He's also very very encouraging even when I totally screw up!Their website also has a ton of great information on it. I had taken my Canadian Firearms Safety course elsewhere as I didn't know Eric or his company at the time. But I would definitely recommend Eric over anywhere else.I recently attended the CORE course he was teaching and he's one of the best teachers I have ever known. (Too bad I didn't have more teachers like him in high school! I might have stayed awake. LOL) He made the class so interesting that time just flew by.I highly recommend Eric and his company for anything you may require to do with guns and shooting.

I just took the PAL and CORE last week. Coming from someone that had little knowledge about guns and hunting, these courses did not seem overwhelming at all. You work at a pace that suits you, no matter the size of the class. If you have questions about anything, there is plenty of time to ask. You will not be disappointed.
Chris Wigston PAL & CORE Student
Just completed my combined PAL/RPAL Course with Eric. The course was held at Cabelas in Abbotsford. Great choice! Every break we had, we went and looked at Guns! Couldn’t be any better, the two days were super enjoyable and informative ( it helped that Eric has the “voice of an angle and the comedic presence of - insert your favourite comedian!”)
All in all, great company to get trained by and I’m looking forward to booking my Core.
Spike Wallace PAL & RPAL Student
Just finished taking the PAL course this weekend. The instructor was Eric , and he is even better than the reviews I had read . He made the course both interesting and very enjoyable, nothing like I was expecting. The material covered gave me a very good understanding about gun use and safety. BC Firearms Academy website is very informative and helpful, also the staff member who signed me was helpful,courteous and friendly. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone (which i have already done). Thanks Eric ps...obviously I passed 😀
Lorne Fuller PAL & RPAL Student
I took the CFSC and CRFSC courses this past weekend, and really quite enjoyed it.As you would expect the course prepared us very well for the written and practical examination, but more importantly the instructor, Eric Beer, was very personable, clearly very experienced, and had a number of really interesting anecdotal stories that "brought it all to life". The course was a lot more fun than I would have thought as a result.I and my friends that attended are already talking about scheduling our CORE course through BC Firearms Academy.
Jame Healy PAL & RPAL Student
Just completed my CFSC/CRFSC training. Eric is a top rate instructor, with a voice of an angel. He offered loads of fantastic knowledge, All together was a great course.
Josh Lowen PAL & RPAL Student
I took the core/ non-restricted course and left feeling I will easily retain what was taught.I completely agree with the other reviews, and the courses were the cheapest around me.Well worth it!
Kylie Marcus CORE & PAL Student
Great Course! Eric does a fabulous job of relaying course content. He keeps it interesting and upbeat with a good sense of humour and contextualized information. A wealth of information and great instructor.
Emma V PAL & RPAL Student
Took a CFSC - Non restricted only at Abbotsford Cabelas with Eric. Excellent course. Eric taught all that was needed to ace the course exams and slipped some humour to keep it interesting. Would recommend and will use for future courses
