APSI Instructor Courses

apsi_courses.pngOne Day Instructor's Course

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.

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.

Cost is £195, for a minimum 12 participants. For further information call Chris Miles - tel: 01782 397961 or email: chris@executivedays.co.uk

Gun Fitting Course

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.

Cost of the course is £195 per person. This includes all guns & equipment, cartridges, clays and catering for the day.

Gun fitting courses are now concluded for 2016. The next will be held in 2017.

(Date to be announced)

Olympic Trap & Olympic Skeet Coaching Courses: Update

For 2017 APSI will be launching coaching courses in the two Olympic disciplines of Trap and Skeet. They are a step on from the courses already on offer and are aimed at the clay discipline coach looking to extend his/her knowledge base to include these testing international disciplines.

An increasing number of clay shooters, particularly youngsters, are turning to these disciplines and the demand for Olympic discipline coaches is growing.

Development of the courses is in the advanced stages and to avoid holiday periods we will now be launching them in September 2017.

For details please contact Paul Bentley at pb@totalshooting.com for further information.
