Firearms........is the written testing similiar to the Restricted firearms course?

I have my CPR C and I was wondering if I needed anything else before I head for training in the Prairies.

Thanks

No the written test is not. I will not discuss the test itself either. My only advice is eyes and ears open, and ask questions when needed.

You need more then just CPR-C, you'll need a Standard First-Aid as well. Don't forget to bring along a good attitude and the willingness to learn and progress.

JrPI wrote:Sorry I guess I stated the question wrong. I did not want to know what is on the test. I have little experience with firearms and I am worried about the failure rate at CTP. Being in my 40's; I am mature, respectful hard worker...but I am concerned about my lack of knowledge with Corrections and firearms. It would be extremely disappointing and humiliating to fail the process.
Don't get me wrong, I am really looking forward to a career change but the risk of failure vs success makes me nervous.
Are there normally a lot of mature persons in there 40 - 50 range in training?


I have addressed all of your concerns... the only person that can influence your chances of success and failure is you. No one else.

No the written test is not. I will not discuss the test itself either. My only advice is eyes and ears open, and ask questions when needed.

You need more then just CPR-C, you'll need a Standard First-Aid as well. Don't forget to bring along a good attitude and the willingness to learn and progress.
