Firearm Safety Course

What is the Firearms Safety Course (Long-arms)?

Before you can apply for a NSW Firearms Licence or Minor’s Permit, you will need to complete and pass the Pre Qualification Firearms Safety Course (for Long Arms) and provide a ‘Genuine Reason’ to obtain a Firearms licence.

Our club facilitates Firearms Safety Courses and is also approved by the Firearms Registry to provide its members Genuine Reason for Recreational Hunting and Target Shooting.

If you complete the firearms safety course and join our Club, then you effectively satisfy your genuine reason when applying for a firearms licence.

The Pre Qualification Firearm Safety Course we provide is endorsed by the NSW Firearms Safety and Training Council.

The course is designed to educate in the safe handling, storage and transport of a firearm in accordance to the Legislative requirements (Firearm Act 1996 and Firearms Regulations 2017).

The course comprises of both a theory and a practical component.

The theory assessment is open book and consists of 20 multiple choice questions for adults, and 5 questions for minors.

This is completed ( and paid) online on the NSW Firearms Safety and Training Council website. Click here.

Once your eligibilty is confirmed and the theory component is completed the practical component is facilitated by Hellenic Hunters Firearms trainers.
