    Just curious .... are the BDS still giving out certificates of attendance for just turning up or are they actually training people now?

    I have been a BDS member for 30 plus years and did the HAD course at Cirencester out of interest and was hugely disappointed ......

    I imagine any practical element within the syllabus, or lack thereof, is always going to be a significant challenge for a course provider?

    It is a challenge for sure, but more to do with numbers .... do you get 50 delegates in a room and talk to them for a day for cheap money and a certificate of attendance ... or fewer delegates, charge more, but allow delegates to bring their HAD tools with them, and get them out in the field using live firing, and actually train them for a LANTRA certificate of training?

    I suppose you pay for what you get!

    Good Morning, I have just attended the Jelen HAD course and can only say it was an excellent day. We spent all morning and a couple of hours in the afternoon in the classroom followed by a very interesting afternoon on the range testing various HAD methods and weapon systems. Well worth the money spent
    Regards

    Hiya

    The point I was trying to make gently and hopefully without making it too big a deal(!), was there is a world of difference between getting a (BDS) Lantra certificate of attendance and a (Jelen) Lantra certificate of training ... one you get for staying awake, the other you have to work for and be tested ....

    I agree Steve, I found the course very informative and the practical demonstrations useful, I was surprised at how easy it was to miss the vital areas at such close range!
