    We have had in the past people who have registered to become a Coach, undertaken the training and moved to the assessment phase only to realise that they don't have the experience required to become a coach. If they have completed the safe shot award, we know they can safely handle a shotgun and understand the basics of law, if they have the Safety Officer qualification we know that they understand how to safely set up a shoot and understand the law.

    No other reason, than we do not want to waste their time and money and our time and money. The same as if you want to go to a Good University, you need to have GCSE's and good A-level results before they will let you in.

    How can it smack of commercialism if we are turning people away who do not have the experience or qualifications to take part in the course. Safe shot costs £20 and the Safety Officers course is £90; these assessments and courses are primarily run by third party trainers.
