Now Available: Canadian Firearms Registry Online

Canadian Firearms Registry Online: A Tool for Officer Safety is now available as a free learning and evaluation event at CPKN. Sponsored by the RCMP's Canadian Firearms Program, all police and law enforcement personnel have the opportunity to trial this course at no cost until August 31st. This two hour course focuses on query processes within the CFRO system, the various statuses associated with firearms, licenses, and certificates, and, using scenario-based exercises, instructs learners on how to interpret query results. Development funding was provided by the Government of Canada's Sector Council Program. On completion of the course, learners are asked to complete a brief online survey about their learning experience. This data is analyzed by CPKN and its collaborating agencies and used to continually improve e-learning offerings to the police community. All learner data is kept strictly anonymous. At this time, only the English language version of the course is available; the French version is expected to be released later this month.
