6.) Range Safety Officer Course:

*** NRA Range Safety Officers must be 21 years of age or older. ***

This is a great opportunity to become a certified NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO).

This is a awesome NRA credential to have under your belt. A certified NRA RSO has the opportunity to apply for any job opening that becomes available. That means if a range is hiring for RSO's and you hold the NRA RSO credential you can apply....being a RSO is a great part time job for a lot of people! When a Sportsmen's club or any other type of range looks to hire RSO's they are mostly looking for a part time RSO to help out their team to over see the safety of others using the range. You might be hired to help out at competitions or other types of events too. Most of the time it's just to stand in the range while others are shooting to make sure things are running safely.  Even if you never seek a job with your RSO credential it's a great opportunity to further your education with firearms because this course teaches you more about gun safety for yourself and also the safety of others you're around at the range and also how to make a range a safer place....What to do in case of an emergency! 

Lessons taught:

 Range Safety Officer's roles and responsibilities 
 Range standard operating procedures
 Range inspection and range rules
 Firearm stoppages and malfunctions
  Range Safety Briefings which include emergency procedures.

*** $20.00 for any duplicate certificates that we need to reprint/resubmit for any reason
