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 course does not encompass the functions and responsibilities of a Range Officer, who conducts NRA competitive shooting events as defined by Rule 11.5 of the NRA Rule Books.
Become A Range Safety Officer
There are two ways to become a RSO. You can take an Online Course from the NRA if you are currently an NRA Certified Firearm Instructor or you can take a course conducted by a Chief RSO, an individual certified to train NRA Range Safety Officers. The RSO course content consists of RSO's roles and responsibilities, range standard operating procedures, range inspection and range rules, firearm stoppages and malfunctions, and Range Safety Briefings which include procedures to follow in the case of an emergency. RSO's who have successfully completed the course then have the ability to become a Chief Range Safety Officer, someone essential to training and supervising NRA Range Safety Officers and developing range standard operating procedures.
To qualify for the class you need to be a Desert Marksman member and 21 years or older.
The class will be held at the desert marksman on the Black Powder range, you should bring lunch and drinks as no services are available on site. you may want to bring a folding chair to sit in ( there are some pick-nick tables located at the range, but seating is limited.
