Registrant Info

The CRFSC is offered the day after the CFSC, and typically runs from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm on Sunday. Those registering for the CRFSC must have successfully completed the CFSC first. 

  • Anyone taking the CRFSC within seven days of the CFSC only requires a four-hour session.
  • If it has been more than seven days since taking the CFSC, a six-hour session is required.

The class concludes with a written exam administered by the instructor; a minimum score of 80% is needed to pass.  Those who successfully pass the written exam will then be required to pass a practical exam.  Upon successful completion of both tests, the student will be given the document necessary for the Restricted PAL application process.
