Learn at home or at the office with distance and online courses from BC Firearms Academy. We offer several programs entirely online. We also offer a variety of online courses individually, which you may apply to an in-class program later if you choose (i.e. PAL must be compleated in the classroom). We have a full range of Online programs including Firearms, Hunting & Safety Training.
Online courses are structured very much like in-class courses. In an in-class course, you are given new information by lecture, readings, discussions and possibly an assignment. In an online course, you are given new content to read, course readings, online research, discussions and assignments or exams in modules. All work, including exams, is completed online within the time frame of the course.
We’ve designed the curriculum of our online courses and programs to meet the scheduling needs of busy people from all walks of life. You’ll access the courses through the BC Firearms Academy learning management system, which is available through the BC Firearms Academy website. The BC Firearms Academy website is extremely user-friendly—even if you’ve never studied online before. All you need is a computer, smartphone or tablet with an Internet connection.
