Please read our mandate to practice ‘due diligence’ for the safety of our clients and staff, this is very important to us. We are detailing the steps and procedures we employ to reduce risk of any contamination and transmission of the current pandemic, Coronavirus.
Please note the following steps we take before and after every class.
We clean our office and classrooms with approved best practice cleaning products.
We wipe all tables, all points of contact, including handrails, bathroom fixtures and our training equipment which our students may have contact with.
Please note the following points of personal preparation we request you to follow for your safety:
Please consider your current state of health, do you frequently cough? Do you have unusual aches and pains? Headaches? Dry sore throat/mouth? If you have any of these symptoms, or have come into contact with any person that is exhibiting these symptoms please consider postponing your course date to a later time when the risk to yourself or others has passed, 14 days as recommended by the W.H.O.
We insist you practice washing your hands frequently... after every visit to the washroom.
Please avoid physical contact with your classmates. Try to keep a 1 to 3 - meter space with your classmates in the classrooms.
Please cooperate with your instructor(s) by wiping down the disabled firearms during the handling/practice sessions.
Any cups, utensils, or personal service equipment must be set aside for cleaning in our dishwasher.
Please do not bring food to the classroom; all liquids consumed in the classroom must be from sealed containers.
Notice to firearm owners.
Are you faced with decisions of what to do with old or unwanted firearms in your possession?
Because it is difficult to access used firearms for training purposes we are willing to pay a nominal fee for unwanted firearms in working condition.
In receiving your unwanted firearms, we would provide a written guarantee that the firearms would be decommissioned and would only be used as training equipment in the training of Canadian Firearms Safety Courses.
