*NEW* Fireworks licence course date added for 2020 & electric firing system training

Not only do we put on amazing fireworks shows across the country, but we teach the course that lets you do it too!  We’ve added the first date of the Display Fireworks Safety and Legal Awareness Course to our spring schedule; this is the official Natural Resources Canada/Explosives Regulatory Division fireworks certification programme.  In other words: this allows you to shoot professional-grade fireworks in Canada!

At the end of the course, we will also be hosting a seminar on our electric firing systems, namely Cobra and Pyromate.  Whether you’re a grizzled veteran of the fireworks world, just getting your toes wet, or looking for a refresher, this will give you the opportunity to see how we take a fireworks show to the next level!  From simple remote firing, to displays fully auto-fired and choreographed to music, an electrically-fired show is what separates the pros from the amateurs.  Know all about firing systems and looking to buy one of your own?  We can hook you up!

Note: we are offering the firing system seminar free of charge.  Feel free to sign up even if you already have your fireworks licence; you can join us after the Display Fireworks Safety and Legal Awareness Course has concluded.

  • April 25, 2020 – Trenton, ON
  • May 2, 2020 – Kitchener, ON

Cost: $150 payable to us (+ a separate payment of $102 payable to Natural Resources Canada when you submit your licence application)

Sign up below, or email training@northstar-fireworks.com for more info.  Want us to come to you instead?  Let us know; we will gladly travel to anywhere in Canada to get you licensed!
