Our Training Program

Get Trained To Run Your Own Shows!

To purchase and fire display fireworks in Canada, you must be a licensed fireworks supervisor

This license was previously only available through an Energy, Mines, and Resources display course offered by the Federal Government. Today a handful of experienced pyros throughout the country have been authorized to teach the program. North Star Fireworks and company president Jeff Clarmo are included in that prestigious list.

We have been supplying the service for a few years and have taught the course to various fire departments across Ontario. We are available to come to your town!

Please inquire for rates and availability by emailing training@northstar-fireworks.com or use the sign-up form below.
