Welcome to the Probationary Training Programme for novice shooters!
ABOUT THE COURSE
This programme is comprised of 6 training modules designed to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to shoot independently, with a club and to enter competitions.
Module 4 will assess your knowledge of:
- All theory covered on the course through a multiple choice quiz
- Safe handling of the different firearm types operated on this course
- How to zero a rifle and adjust sights for windage and elevation
You will leave the day:
- Having completed the theory element of your Probationary Training
This is a full day course, from 0830 - 1630, with a mixture of classroom and on-range practical exercises.
Joining instructions with info on timings and location will be sent out around 2 weeks before the course date.
There is no essential pre-reading before Module 4, however you might like to re-read through the Modules 1 - 4 sections of the Probationary Training Manual in preparation for the assessment. You will have been issued a hard copy of the manual on Module 1 but the PDF version can be found by clicking here.
BEFORE APPLYING, PLEASE NOTE:
If you are unable to shoot from a prone position, then a bench will be provided. You must let us know in advance if this is required.
This course involves spending time outdoors on the ranges, even if it's raining, and not all ranges are under cover. Please make sure to dress appropriately for the weather and temperature. Sturdy, full coverage footwear is recommended.
