Soldiers from the Canadian Forces Logistics Training Centre (CFLTC) ammunition technician course will be conducting at CFB Borden from 08 June to July 2022, excluding weekends, between the hours of approximately 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

At no time will this training pose a risk to local population or infrastructure; rigorous safety standards that govern the use of controlled detonations will be strictly observed. Approximately 10 controlled detonations will take place daily.

The Canadian Armed Forces employs a wide range of ammunition on ranges across Canada. Ammunition Technical Officers assist in the safe and expedient disposal of any misfired, dud or obsolete ammunition in Canada or on deployed operations overseas.
