The Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) course encourages safety and conservation in the enjoyment of the outdoors. Successful completion of the CORE course enables participants to obtain a BC Fish and Wildlife ID (FWID) which permits the purchase of an annual hunting license and participate in Limited Entry Hunting draws. A Firearms License (PAL) is not required for the CORE course. The CORE course includes a multiple choice exam and firearms handling exam. The multiple choice exam is based on the CORE manual and the Hunting & Trapping Synopsis. A minimum of 75% is required to pass the exams. Proof of successful CFSC completion through presentation of your CFSC Non-Restricted Course Report, provides an exemption from the firearms handling exam.
This is a two day course offered on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to approximately 5:30pm in the Clubhouse of the Vancouver Gun Club.
