Rangemaster Development


If you have been handed the keys to the range, then you need to attend this course!  Firearms instructor certification courses typically do not go into great detail about the administrative duties and knowledge needed for successfully operating a shooting range. This 3-day / 24-hour instructor development course is designed to educate lead firearms instructors or supervisors, who are assigned as the Rangemaster, on a variety of topics to ensure their firearms training programs and range facility are operating safely, reducing liability, and defendable in court.  This is the most comprehensive Rangemaster course available.

This course is only taught by Staff Instructors who have held a Rangemaster supervisory position during their career.  This is a classroom / seminar training event that is very interactive and includes many practical exercises.

This course is approved by the NRA LE Division for 24 hours of continuing education credit.
