NRA Certified Range Safety Officer Course   

The NRA Certified Range Safety Officer program was developed in response to the demand for a 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.

This 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.

NRA Certified Range Safety Officers must be 21 years of age or older.

The Range Safety Officer course consists of: Range Safety Officer’s roles and responsibilities, range standard operating procedures, range inspection and range rules, firearm stoppages and malfunctions, and Range Safety Briefings which include emergency procedures. Candidates must also receive 90 percent or better on the written exam.

Range Safety Officer courses are conducted by Chief Range Safety Officers. (“Chief Range Safety Officers” are those individuals certified to train Range Safety Officers.) The Range Safety Officer course is a nine-hour course that consists of classroom time and practical exercises conducted on a range. Range Safety Officer candidates will receive the NRA Certified Range Safety Officer Student Packet and be issued a NRA certificate upon completion of the program.

This course is open to 2022 HRC Members and Non-members with a LTC.   
HRC Members – $50.00.  Non-member fee is $150.00.

This course along with a marksmanship qualification will qualify HRC Members to perform as a coach at the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course.  

Our next class will be scheduled in the Fall of 2022.  Date TBD.   (We must have a minimum of 5 students).

Please contact Bruce Hermans, HRC President/ Chief Range Safety Officer for additional information:
