Last week Silvercore instructors had the opportunity to participate in a shotgun instructor development training course at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. Topics covered a variety of shotgun related subject matter and shooting skill-sets. The emphasis was on both the tactical use of the defensive shotgun in context for the Use of Force training program that we offer and in a wildlife defensive context offered in our Bear Defence training programs.
Silvercore maintains a high standard for its instructor’s skills and values its position as the industry leader in public firearms training in Canada. The instructor development program we offer continues to ensure that our instructors stay current and fresh in their ability to deliver quality, detailed instruction to both our corporate and public clients.
Our live-fire program continues to grow in both numbers of existing courses and expanding into different firearms-related avenues. This expansion necessitates that instructors are well rounded and experienced in all aspects of firearms and related training from the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC/CRFSC), handguns, shotguns, rifles, Use of Force and combatives.

We also recently completed a stretch of two back to back Handgun 1 courses last week; on Thursday/Friday and Saturday/Sunday. Both were full and the students did a fantastic job. We had a lot of fun and everyone shot well over both courses. Handgun 1 is our introductory handgun shooting course that guides the student through the fundamentals of handgun shooting, principles of marksmanship and gives the student a sound, solid platform to work from in order to practice and improve their skills over time. We also tackle cleaning, maintenance and several legal concepts in relation to restricted firearms.
Silvercore continually strives to maintain our position as the industry leader in firearms training and personal safety in Canada to both the public and corporate markets.
During the first week of April Silvercore ran its 5 day Use of Force training course at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. In Canada it is federally mandated training required to receive an Authorization to Carry in order to work in the Armoured Car industry. The platform of firearms used in the course varied according to each company’s needs bringing together an interesting variety of revolvers and semi-autos.
Silvercore prides itself on being Canada’s best, most professional and leading authority on firearms training available to our corporate clients and the public market. Our Use of Force training is delivered in a manner consistent with all of the Canadian federal Use of Force guidelines and the mandated curriculum ensuring the Armoured Car recruits receive the best, most applicable and useful training possible. Our Use of Force Instructors are former long-time members of the Armoured Car community, bringing a wealth of experience, realism and providing industry specific information that contributes to the relevance of the material being taught.
