Shooting courses on Bader


#1

Can anyone tell me anything about the courses below? What duties do they allow the holder to perform? Bader (The Shooting Portal) doesn’t give any further details. I want to gain some quals so that I can be of use on shooting weekends and at camps etc.

(1) Authorised Representative Course
(2) Safety Supervisor Authorisation


#2

There is a way to ask these questions on the shooting portal itself which might help. Although most of the people who will know are in a field in Surrey at the moment…


#3

Authorised Representative

This is a course delivered by the RAF that authorised CFAVs to deliver Dangerous Goods Awareness training, I think this is valid for 5 years. The DGA trained CFAVs can then transport ammunition within the current rules.

Safety Supervisor Authorisation

This is an annual authisation under the SA(K)17 course folder to act as a Firing Point Safety Supervisor on any range so long as your current on the weapons. The authorisation is valid for 1 year.


#4

Best if you can to do SA(K)17 (used to be ARD) (non-expiring) rather than SSA (annual authorisation)
