The Youth Firearm Safety Course is an introductory safety class intended to introduce youth to the concepts of firearm safety.  The course includes a section on the basic aspects of how firearms work, and an overview of the different types.  Safety concepts such as what to do if a child discovers a firearm when an adult isn't around, when it is okay and not okay to handle a firearm, the four cardinal safety rules, and proper handling techniques are all covered.  Adults should attend the class alongside their child to answer specific questions the child may have and encourage them in the learning process.  Please note that we include one personalized course completion certificate per signup.  Additional certificates require additional signups.
