NRA Certified Range Safety Officer

Course Description:

This course develops NRA Certified Range Safety Officers with the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, conducting, and supervising safe range shooting activities and range operations. No range time involved.

RSO candidates will learn the roles and responsibilities of an RSO; range Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and rules; range inspection points; range briefings; emergency procedures; and firearm stoppages and malfunctions. Books provided.

We encourage every firearm instructor to become a Range Safety Officer.  The valuable lessons learned in class are able to help everyone get a better understanding and knowledge of safe gun practices and range etiquette.  This Range Safety Officer class goes far beyond the obvious limitations of home study and self-validation. Our class provides live instruction, interaction, hands-on demonstrations, and practical exercises on a shooting range in accordance with NRA standards and procedures. We provide a certificate of completion and promptly certify the application of every successful Range Safety Officer candidate to the NRA.

Note that the NRA's Range Safety Officer course does not encompass the functions and responsibilities of a Range Officer who conducts NRA competitive shooting events as defined by Rule 11.5 of the NRA Rule Books. This NRA course is designed for persons who may be assigned by a range owner, operator, or manager to oversee range safety. This course therefore is useful to all responsible adults who want to encourage safe shooting.
