Professional, passionate and engaged

Note that due to the group size restrictions for the Winnipeg metropolitan area announced on 16 October 2020, we have temporarily suspended course delivery.


Cndfirearmstraining has been providing quality training in Manitoba since 2009. We are certified by the RCMP to provide the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course. We also offer customized training. 
Part of what sets us apart is a passion for hunting, competitive shooting and professionalism.

My name is Paul Houle. I am a Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP) and RCMP certified instructor for the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC). I started in 2010 after being disappointed trying to enroll my wife and nephew into a quality CFSC. Since then I have helped hundreds of students complete the CFSC and CRFSC. Feel free to click the LinkedIn icon below to review my professional profile. 


Our students have included youths,  active duty law enforcement officers, prospective hunters and one fantastic student that introduced herself as a "vegan hippie chick that never wants to have to shoot anything". She required a  PAL to conduct plant research in Churchill around polar bears. 

The following differentiate us from other training providers:

- Professional adult educator

- 30+ years of experience with firearms
- Commitment to making you succeed 

- Modern equipment

- A fun and engaging course experience (but expect occasional dad jokes)

- Delicious course snacks and just okay coffee
