& Map

Hello, my Name is Bert Cronkwright.  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!  However I do insist that the CFSC be done prior to taking my CRFSC or OHEP.  This makes for a smoother flowing, stress free learning experience.  NEW! My courses will now be 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.
