Getting certified for the Canadian Firearms Safety Course is important for many people in Alberta. At Blue Line Fitness Testing, we offer both the Personal Acquisition License (PAL) course and the Restricted Personal Acquisition License (RPAL) course.
First-time license applicants must pass the Canadian Firearms Safety Course before applying for a Possession and Acquisition License (PAL license). After completing the in-class instruction, you will do a written and practical test.
