What is a safe handling course?

A Safe Handling Course must be undertaken by all unlicenced persons before being allowed to shoot on an approved range.

Kemps Creek Pistol Club utilises the New South Wales Amateur Pistol Association's (NSWAPA)  P650 Safe Handling Course. The course focuses on both theory and practical in the safe handling and use of a firearm.

Once completed a Safe Handling Course is valid for one (1) month from the date on Safe Handling Course completion certificate unless he/she joins a pistol club and applies to the NSW Firearms Registry for his/her Probationary Pistol Licence (PPL).

The club shall forward the Safe Handling Course completion certificate to the NSW Firearms Registry and will also provide two (2) copies for personal records.
