Kelowna & District
Member, guest, and community safety is a top priority for the Club. As a result, the Club has developed a Range Qualification Program for KDFGC members that exceeds minimum federal regulations.
There are three parts to the Range Qualification Program: a Range Orientation, a Range Safety Qualification Course, and a Range Safety Qualification Course. These program parts can be taken independently or completed sequentially on a single Saturday afternoon.
If you are considering becoming a Club member then we recommend first reading the KDFGC Member Handbook and then attending the Range Qualification Program on a Saturday. You can complete your membership application while at the Club Office if you arrive early or after the orientation portion of the program.
All new members must attend the Range Orientation before they can use any KDFGC archery or firearms range. Range Orientations happen Saturday mornings 10 AM to 11AM, starting at the Club office. Range Orientations are open to everyone, free of charge.
The goal of the Range Orientation is to introduce new members, guests, and the public to the Club, its facilities, and its general polices and processes.

After the Range Orientation, the Club offers a Range Safety Qualification Course. This course is highly recommended for all members who want to pass the Range Safety Qualification Test and be qualified to shoot on KDFGC rifle or pistol range without the supervision of a Club Certified Range Officer.
The course is for members only, lasts 2.5 hours and costs $25. The course includes instruction on the fundamentals of firearm and range safety as well as dry and live fire practice at the indoor range.

Any member who wants to shoot on a KDFGC pistol or rifle range without the supervision of a Club Range Officer must pass the Range Safety Qualification Test.
After the Range Safety Qualification Course, the Range Safety Qualification Test is offered free of cost, to members only. The test requires members to demonstrate their ability to safely use a firearm at a range as well as act as a Range Officer. The test is pass/fail and administered by Club Instructors.
It is strongly recommended that members take the Range Safety Qualification Course prior to taking the Range Safety Qualification test but it is not required.
