Frequently Asked Questions

What is firearm competency training in Perth?

Firearm competency training in Perth refers to the training and education that individuals must complete in order to legally use firearms in Western Australia, pursuant to a Corporate Firearms license. The training is designed to ensure that individuals understand and comply with the firearms act & regulations, as well as to promote safe and responsible use of firearms.

The training typically includes instruction on firearms safety, handling, storage, transportation, and the legal responsibilities of firearms ownership. The training will also include practical exercises such as handling, loading and unloading of firearms, and live round shooting conducted at an authorised firearms range.

In Western Australia, a person must complete a firearms safety training course and pass a firearms competency test before they can apply for a firearms license. The test will also include a background check and a series of questions about firearms safety, handling, storage and legislation. The training is provided by firearms training instructors accredited by Western Australia Police.

It’s important to note that firearms are a deadly weapon and should be treated with respect and caution. Proper training can help ensure that individuals use firearms safely and responsibly and comply with the legal requirements of firearms usage in Western Australia.
