Applicants for a new Queensland Firearms Licence must have successfully completed an approved course in Firearm Safety. Licence application must be lodged within 12 months of completion of the course. The courses we offer meet the requirement for a Queensland Licence.
At SSAA Bundaberg we conduct regular courses for Category A & B and Category H firearms. We are also able to provide firearms safety training for other Categories including C and D upon request.
Each Category of licence has a specific Elective that must be completed. A typical Firearms’ Safety Course comprises Section 1 and the Elective for Category A & B or Category H firearms.
The course(s) deal with knowledge, attitude and behaviour needed to use a firearm safely, responsibly and legally.
Some of the key components include:
- legal requirements for owning a firearm,
- the technology of firearms and ammunition,
- different types of firearm,
- safe handling and safe use of firearms,
- legal and social responsibilities of shooters, and
- practical shooting here you demonstrate that you are competent in handling a firearm safely.

Safety courses for Category A & B are held the Third Sunday of every month. Safety courses for Category H are held on the Fourth Sunday of every second month.
