What to Expect When You Take the CFSC / PAL Course
What to Expect When You Take the CFSC / PAL Course?
Here’s a comment we often get from potential students: I’ve never handled a gun before, I’m afraid I’m not going to pass the course!
Let us put your mind at ease.
Besides employing some of the most engaging and knowledgable instructors in the province, we also present the course to you in a way that makes sense. We know why you’re coming to us and we make darn sure that you leave with the knowledge and confidence that firearms training demands.
AND IT’S FUN!
” Amazing instructor, I have never touched firearms in my life but in the 2 days of training I got lots of information and practice with my instructor. He has outstanding knowledge about firearms.
Without any pre study he will make you able to crack exam in 2 days.
Thanks” .Salman P.
