NRA Range Safety Officer Program

The NRA Range Safety Officer program was developed in response to the demand for a nationally recognized range safety officer certification. NRA Range Safety Officers are people who possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, conducting, and supervising safe shooting activities and range operations. Students will have 45 mins for lunch and a 5 min break every hour. There is no live fire component, however while you should be comfortable with firearms, you do not have to be a crack shot! A large portion of the class involves speaking to groups, so I would like you to bring your favorite firearm sans ammo, and be prepared to speak about it for 5 -10 minutes.
