NRA Range Safety Officer Course


Boy Scout and Venturing rules require an NRA Instructor AND an NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO) if they engage in shooting sports.
An Instructor Rating is expensive & time consuming to get & maintain. RSO takes only 9 hours and is much less expensive.
All Troops and Crews should consider having an RSO among their leaders.
