Successful completion of the CRFSC entitles you to apply for a Restricted Possession and Acquisition License (PAL), which allows for the purchase of all non-restricted firearms as well as any restricted firearm.
The CRFSC is offered the day after the CFSC, and typically runs from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm on Sunday. Those registering for the CRFSC must have successfully completed the CFSC first. Anyone taking the CRFSC within seven days of the CFSC only requires a four hour session. Those not taking the Restricted course within seven days of the Non-Restricted course are required to have a six hour session.
The class concludes with a written exam administered by the instructor; a minimum score of 80% is needed to pass. Those who successfully pass the written exam will then be required to pass a practical exam. Upon successful completion of both tests, the student will be given the document necessary for the Restricted PAL application process.
Recent changes in legislation preclude anyone from challenging the test – everyone taking the test must have completed the classroom portion of the course.
The Restricted PAL must be renewed every five years.
