BFS Primer Course for State Certified Firearm Instructors
GOAL often receives inquiries from both new and seasoned firearm instructors about refresher courses. Our BFS Primer course is definitely part of a well rounded "refresher". As instructors certified by the Commonwealth, as well as the NRA, we are required to convey sections of Massachusetts law (Chapter 140 §131P).
This class runs approximately 3 hours. Topics covered include: frequently asked questions by students, suggested material for student packets and a review of the course requirements for Basic Firearm Safety Instructors certified by the Colonel of the Massachusetts State Police and general gun law.
You do not need to be an NRA Instructor to attend but must be a BFS Certified Instructor.
