Anyone wishing to obtain a firearms licence must complete a Weapons Safety Course. The club organises regular Cat A/B/H safety courses at the club for its members. You can do the course at the club or at any other qualified provider.
After joining the club the course needs to be completed during your probationary period (minimum 6 months) and on completing the course you will be presented with a Statement of Attainment which is valid for 12 months. This Statement of Attainment is required before the club can provide a letter of support for your license application and must be valid at the time that you apply for your license.
You will need your Australian Government Unique Student Identifier (USI) to register into the courses. Create a USI for free from the Australian Government website.
Note: Many organisations are conducting Weapons Safety Courses, but not all of them include the category H (pistol) component, please check to ensure that the course you are attending will cover all categories of firearms you intend to possess.
Prerequisites: When attending the range to do a Weapons Safety Course, you must have a photo ID. You will also need to have covered footwear, and a shirt/top with sleeves, singlets, cammo or military style clothing is not acceptable on the range.
