To be eligible to apply for a PAL, classroom participation in the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) is mandatory for first-time licence applicants.

Topics covered in the CRFSC include:
- the evolution of firearms, major parts, types and actions;
- basic firearms safety practices;
- operating handgun actions;
- firing techniques and procedures for handguns;
- care of restricted firearms;
- responsibilities of the firearms owner/user; and
- safe storage, display, transportation and handling of restricted firearms.
