Firearms safety e-learning

The e-learning modules will help to build your base knowledge of firearms ammunition and common types of firearms used in New Zealand. These modules are NOT a substitute for the Firearms Safety Course – they are an additional resource.

It is recommended that you go through these e-learning modules and the Arms Code BEFORE you attend the Firearms Safety Course to help with the written part of the course.


Note: The Arms Code quiz is currently unavailable while we update for recent regulation changes.
