They will verify the paperwork is complete and send you the copies of the course report that you need to apply for the PAL. This process may take 3-4 weeks.
Only paid customers are admitted to the course and exams, with the exception of the following: 1. FSESO designated auditors. 2. Parents/guardians who are chaperoning their children who are taking the course. In other cases, attending the course without paying can be considered on a case-by-case basis, but will not result in you receiving a course report form or completing a test.

Although our facility is accessible for mobility issues, accommodation for other specific abilities will need to be discussed in advance of the course. If we are not able to offer an appropriate accommodation, we will direct you to the Firearms Safety Education Service of Ontario, who can work with you to find an instructor who can, or who will provide further assistance to us in accommodating your needs.

We have a Registration and Refund policy that covers these scenarios. You should try to come to the course on time, but if you’re sick you should stay home. Email us as soon as you know you can’t make it, at email@example.com. We are very flexible, and can usually reschedule you without penalty.
If you fail either the written or practical test, we usually have time to re-administer the test on the same day. If we cannot, you will have to re-test within 30 days.
