Private South African citizens interested in licensing a firearm for self-defence need to complete two unit standards. The first unit standard is the Knowledge of the Act (U/S 117705), also referred to as the Legal Test, and the second is the basic unit standard for the firearm category chosen to license.

Knowledge of the Act

The Knowledge of the Act (Legal Test) unit standard covers the legalities for licensing a firearm for self-defence, as well as aspects of the Firearms Control Act 60 of 2000 (U/S 117705). The legal test is a basic standard requirement which learners must successfully complete in order to

The Knowledge of the Act unit standard requires the learner completes two written tests:

1.  Formative exam (open book with no time limit imposed).

2. Summative exam (closed book exam in the classroom environment after classroom-based training has taken place).

Basic Unit Standards

The basic unit standard (for your selected firearm licensing category) covers the laws pertaining to the actual use of the firearm, the parts & functions of the firearm, maintenance and malfunctions, and the fundamentals required to accurately and safely use the firearm. 

In order to be found competent within the requirements of the unit standard, the learner is required to complete:

1. Formative exam. 

2. Summative exam. 

3. Practical qualification in the shooting range.

Licensing and Competency

Once you have completed these unit standards, you will receive a completion certificate together with a Statement of Results (SoR) from the Quality Assurer: the Professional Firearm Trainers Council. Both these documents will be issued to you by Gun Fun, and are required for the formal application of your Competency Certificate.

Once your Competency Certificate has been issued (which takes approximately 90 days), you may then apply for your firearm license.
