Niagara Training Academy looks forward to being your firearms safety course provider. All of our instructors have been appointed and certified by the Chief Firearms Officer of Ontario to instruct and conduct examinations for the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC). All instructors were trained and are governed by the Firearms Safety Education Service of Ontario (FSESO). All instructors are also "Members in Good Standing," as per the FSESO Policies and Procedures.
Niagara Training Academy services all 12 of Niagara's municipalities (Lincoln, Fort Erie, Grimsby, Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Pelham, Port Colborne, St. Catharines, Thorold, Wainfleet, Welland and West Lincoln). Most courses are held in St. Catharines but we will travel anywhere in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA) if a large group (10+) makes a special request.
