Training


Inductions for New Members

All applicants for membership undergo induction training as part of the enrolment process. This includes a briefing on firearms and range safety, an introduction to the types of firearm they will use initially and a short presentation on basic marksmanship techniques. Training is free, you pay for Ammunition and £1 rifle hire per visit.

Courses are run by the club.


Range Safety Officer

This is available to Full Club Members who aspire to act as Range Officers on the club's indoor range.


Range Control Officer

This extension to the RSO qualification is available to Full Club Members who aspire to act as Range Officers on MOD property. Courses are run by NRA professional trainers.


MoD Range Induction & Assessment

This is a pre-requisite for attending the club's visits to Altcar MOD ranges. It covers the specific safety aspects of shooting on Gallery Ranges and aspects of marksmanship that are applicable to shooting at longer ranges.

Courses are run by the club.


NRA Shooters Certification

Following on from our MOD Introduction and Assessment training, we offer training for our members that want to shoot unsupervised Altcar. Once the shooter holds an NRA shooter Certification, they are able to shoot at many other venues unsupervised.

Certification is run by the club.


First Aid

We aim to make our sports as safe as possible. Part of this is to train and provide First Aid cover at the range and is mandated at MOD ranges.

Courses are run by professional accredited trainers.


In addition to the areas described above, there is considerable expertise and experience of shooting among the membership and this is available to all members.
