Students need to complete the course and testing in English or French. Though students may regularly use/speak other languages, we are required to use either English or French in the testing phase.

Students are not allowed to bring in electronic translators to the course. Students may not bring human translators. The expectation is that students will be able to communicate well later on at Canadian firing lines, where a lack of communications can prove dangerous. Consistent gun-range communication is important for safety!

Outside communication is prohibited, and using electronic devices is not allowed during the tests.

The RCMP, through RGSL, require that students have a good grasp on the English or French spoken and written language components before registering, as sometimes it’s difficult for RGSL instructors to translate more complex firearm concepts to students in real-time at the course itself.
