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.


The Arms Code quiz and e-learning modules are currently unavailable while we update the content to reflect recent changes to regulations.
