10618NAT – Course in Firearms Safety (approved for firearms licensing in Queensland)

To apply for a QLD Weapons Licence you are required to successfully complete a firearm safety course in the category or categories you wish to apply for. Once the student has successfully completed the firearms safety course, a nationally recognised statement of attainment will be issued to the student which will reflect the units of competence completed on the firearms safety course. (Certificates are valid for a period of 12 months)

On our ABH firearms course you will receive expert safety training with Rifles, Shotguns, Handguns and Lever actions, this course is by far our most popular!

Throughout the duration of the firearm safety courses, students will receive first class education in the basic fundamentals of safe firearms handling, safety whilst in possession of a firearm, complying with storage requirements, procedures for transporting firearms in vehicles, what it means to be a “Fit and Proper Person” educating students in legal and ethical requirements, required skills and knowledge needed to stay compliant, firearm maintenance, who Weapons Licensing QLD are, applying for your firearms licence and more.

Then, at the end of the firearm safety course, there will be a competency based assessment made up of multiple choice and true or false questions that the student needs to successfully complete. That assessment will reflect the content covered throughout the firearm safety course in alignment with the course outline, written by the Queensland Police Service and Weapons Licensing Queensland.

Throughout the firearm safety course students will experience an engaging and interactive classroom environment filled with thought provoking topics, classroom based firearm handling skills, learning functionality of the firearms and real life events that will make for a memorable and enjoyable day of firearms safety training.
