Collection: In-person CORE Class

In order to become a hunter, BC residents must complete the Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education Program (CORE). The CORE program provides comprehensive knowledge of the hunting laws, ethics, animal identification, and firearms safety.

The course is held over 4 weekday evenings, 6 pm to 10 pm - see monthly registration links for specific dates.

Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, Vancouver 

At the end of the last day you will be able to take the CORE exam, which is included in the price. If you have taken the CFSC course, then we will ask you to bring a copy of your CFSC course report with you. If you haven't taken the CFSC course, or you haven't kept a copy of the report, then we will run you through the practical firearms portion of the course and you will have a chance to demonstrate safe firearm handling knowledge.

We recommend you review these videos and podcasts in addition to attending the scheduled classroom time:

The CORE manual is not included in the price, and is not mandatory for the class. We will provide you with all the information you need to become a safe, ethical and confident hunter, and pass the CORE exam. However, if you would like to have the manual, you can obtain it:
Online from Crown Publications
In person at local hunting stores. Call ahead to inquire about stock!
