The Crean Hill Gun Club is privileged to have 4 Provincial CSSA Instructors
capable of certifying students in courses offered by the CSSA.
We are more than happy to host groups, or other clubs, at the Crean Hill Gun Club.
We can also make arrangements to travel to your club to provide on-site instruction.
Usually both courses are presented on the same weekend; one on Saturday and
one on Sunday.
We provide all course material. For the Train the Trainer Course the instructors also
provide necessary firearms and dummy ammunition.
Anyone may take the courses listed below.
If you are not a member of the CSSA, you will need to join at a cost of $45.00 for a
yearly membership. Your certification remains in forces as long as you keep your
membership in CSSA active.
Each Course is $45.00.
Courses are offered when enough people show interest.
When we are asked to travel, and must stay overnight,
it is best if the group is over 10 students.
One trainer can train up to eight people; two trainers are required for groups
larger than eight up to twenty students.
