About Me I was a "Certified Technical Trainer" at IBM Canada, and 17 of my 31.5 years there was as a Technical Instructor in the Education and Training department at 3600 Steeles Avenue in Markham. Teaching is my passion and after 50 years I have finally figured out what I want to be now that I have grown up (lol); a Firearms & Hunting Safety Instructor! If you need your PAL for employment (CBSA, Armed Security), hunting, participation in the shooting sports, or just to maintain possession of a family heirloom, I can assist you and guide you through the process of obtaining your Possession & Acquisition License (PAL); aka, Firearms License. I can also advise you on finding and joining a Shooting Club, and there are a couple of Clubs taking applications for membership right now.

I am also CSSA (Canadian Shooting Sports Association) RSO Certified, and Club Level Instructor Certified. I manage the CSSA LinkedIn Group and encourage you to request to join and begin participating in stimulating and educational discussions with other like-minded sports enthusiasts! It's all about doing what we do in the safest possible manner, and we achieve safety through education and openness. Look below for my scheduled courses & how to sign up. If interested in a class in the future, or for your own group of friends or colleagues, call me and I will build a class list and set a date!
About My Courses My classes are small, serious, and extremely fun! My proctor (wife Suzanne) and I are focused on delivering the mandatory training in a timely manner, and I commit to making your experience a positive, memorable, and enjoyable! Firearms ownership is serious business which demands your commitment to "Safety First", and is also an extremely rewarding and fun recreational sport. When you leave my classes, you will be confident you can meet your moral & legal obligations to be a competent & Law-abiding Firearms Owner! Call me or "shoot" me an email if you have any questions! :-)
