& Map

Hello, my Name is Bert Cronkwright (ON0490).  Recreational, collectible, & investment firearms have been an important part of my life since 1965.

I offer instruction & examination for the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC), the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC), & the Ontario Hunter Education Program (OHEP).

My CFSC's & OHEP's are conducted in a "one-stop" format but each discipline is conducted over its own slower paced, separate weekend.  My 6 hour (1 day) CRFSC’s are conducted in a “standalone” format, therefore there is no 30 day time constraint & it can be taken before the CFSC!  However I do prefer that the CFSC be done prior to taking my CRFSC or OHEP.  This makes for a smoother flowing, stress free learning experience.  All of my courses are conducted at the La Salette Historic Community Hall.  I only accept payment by cash or cheque the day of the class. No e-transfers please.  

I strive to keep my courses interesting & to offer you some value for your money.  I try to keep the classroom atmosphere serious but friendly, busy but structured, & challenging but rewarding.    

Instructor & Course Dates

Book early as seating is limited. Course dates are subject to change due to unpredictable circumstances.

 It takes 2-3 months to get a PAL or Minors’ Licence.  Be prepared & plan ahead!

While I respect the views those of you who are “vaccine hesitant”, anyone wishing to enrol into one of my courses (CFSC, CRFSC, or OHEP) is required to show “proof of double vaccination” or  “proof of medical exemption”.  A rule not made by me but, unfortunately mine to abide by.  Please contact me for details as some conditions apply.  Your understanding & co-operation is appreciated.  

It’s official, all classes can resume on January 31!  In order to accommodate those people whose classes were cancelled, I  will post new course dates @ 6:01PM, January 31.  Your usual patience & understanding is appreciated.  Feel free to contact me anytime with questions.
