Prerequisite: You must be 21 years or older to become an NRA RSO.
The NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO) program was developed in response to the demand for a nationally recognized range safety officer certification. To become a NRA Range Safety Officer, you must pass the RSO course and demonstrate that you possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, conducting, and supervising safe shooting activities and range operations.
This 9-hour course is conducted in a classroom (there is no live fire during this course). RSO Candidates will learn roles and responsibilities of an RSO; Range Standard Procedures (SOPs); range inspections/ range rules/ range briefings/ emergency procedures/ and firearm stoppages and malfunctions.
Each Range Safety Officer Candidate will receive an RSO Student Study Guide, a Basic Firearm Training Program brochure, an NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure and a Course Evaluation form.
Note: This certification is required for registered Boy Scout Leaders to run a Boy Scout (Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun) Range
