One Day Instructor’s Course

Course dates: tbc
Course cost: Cost is £195, for a minimum 12 participants.

Following many requests APSI now provides a single day instructor introductory course. This serves as an introduction to the Part One basic course, and also as a quick education in corporate event instruction. It’s ideal for the experienced Shot who perhaps has been asked to help out at the local shooting ground on corporate events, but is unsure about coaching and safety aspects.

The course includes the important APSI Safety Test (which satisfies the Health & safety executive and insurance companies). This is a vital document for all shooting grounds that employ part time staff.

Note: Because of the difficulty of bringing together so many individuals for a short course APSI now runs these courses in response to requests from shooting grounds or members of the gun trade, although freelance individuals can often take part.

Gun Fitting Course

Course dates: tbc
Course cost: £195 per person

For many coaches gun fitting is a mysterious art to be avoided at all costs, and even some shooting grounds steer clear of the subject. But there is no mystery to obtaining a good gun fit. Once the basic principals are learned and practised gun fitting may be tackled with confidence.

The APSI course expands on the gun fitting section of the Basic Coaching Course. It includes the opportunity to perform a gun fit employing O/U and S/S try guns, utilising fitting plates and suitable targets to achieve a final fit.

This includes all guns & equipment, cartridges, clays and catering for the day.
