|NRA Range Safety Officer Certification Course
|This is a course designed to prepare experienced shooters to perform the basic duties of a

course, even if a shooter's discipline does not require experience with those types.
There is a short written test on the lesson material at the end of the course. A 90%
score is required to obtain certification.
