Ready Aim Firearms Safety Incorporated encourages all first time firearms enthusiasts to take the full course and test. We are firm in our belief that there should never be any compromise when it comes to learning about firearms safety and responsible ownership of firearms. Safe handling, storage, transportation and display of firearms is the law in Canada and knowing this is the responsibility of everyone who chooses to own or acquire firearms. These skills are learned behaviors that start the day you walk into the Ready Aim Firearms Safety Inc. academy and receive your introduction to firearms safety. Skills and behaviors that will stay with you for life.

The cost for this course is $150.00, plus applicable HST and this includes the cost of your examination.

Changes and cancellations to a confirmed course require 8 days prior notice to Ready Aim Firearms Safety Inc. without penalty. Calling to change or cancel a booked course within 8 days will result in a $50.00 cancellation charge (per course cancelled). Failing to attend a booked course without notification will result in forfeiture of the entire course cost. Regardless of the amount of notification time given, all courses cancelled at the request of the student will be subject to a $10.00 administration fee (per course cancelled) in order to account for Merchant Service charges applied to Ready Aim Firearms Safety Inc., at the time of payment received.
**Student manuals are available for purchase for an additional $20.00 plus GST from the Firearms Safety Education Service of Ontario (FSESO) and you can simply call their order desk at (705) 329-5559, give them your credit card and a manual will be shipped to you. You may also download a copy of the student manual free of charge by visiting the Canadian Firearms Program website at www.cfc-cafc.gc.ca or the Ontario Firearms Saftey Education Service at www.fseso.org
Pre-study is not necessary as you will be taught the entire course content during your day. However, if you wish to do so, a review of the four vital "ACTS" relating to how to `PROVE" a firearm safe would be a beneficial aid to your quick understanding of the course theme.
As of June, 2015 Course "Challenges" have been discontinued by the RCMP.

*****DON’T BE FOOLED BY UNAUTHORISED FIREARMS SAFETY INSTRUCTION AGENCIES***ALWAYS ASK FOR AN ONTARIO DESIGNATION NUMBER ISSUED BY THE CHIEF FIREARMS OFFICER BEFORE COMMITTING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY TO A PHONEY!******
If you choose not to use the services of Ready Aim Firearms Safety Incorporated we encourage you to first verify with your chosen instructor that he/she is designated at law by the Chief Firearms Officer for Ontario to teach the Canadian Firearms Safety Courses.
Simply ask your proposed instructor to provide you with their ON# issued by the CHIEF FIREARMS OFFICER FOR ONTARIO. If they can not do this, you can easily verify their status with the Firearms Safety Education Service of Ontario (FSESO) at www.fseso.org or by calling the FSESO Executive Manager at (705) 329-1089. Paying good money to non-designated persons for firearms safety instruction will result in personal disappointment and unnecessary licencing delays due to the fact that your training will not be recognized and you will need to re-take the course before being issued a firearms licence. You may also loose your initial tuition money.
READY AIM FIREARMS SAFETY INC. is a recognized firearms safety training academy that uses ONLY CFO designated, qualified and insured Canadian Firearms Safety Course instructors.
FIREARMS & AMMUNITION in CLASS
Ready Aim Firearms Safety Inc. provides a full selection of both restricted and non-restricted firearms for training purposes. Although all guns are real, they have been rendered incapable of shooting by a professional Gunsmith. In addition, all ammunition used in training is manufactured “Dummy” ammunition or real ammunition that has been drilled out, inspected and approved (also by a professional Gunsmith) as being incapable of firing.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY FIREARMS OR AMMUNITION TO CLASS WITH YOU!
