This training is approved by the Tecumseh Council Shooting Sports Committee and is targeted for Scouters who are experienced firearm shooters and who are willing to help support Tecumseh Council Shooting Sports Activities.
This training, when passed successfully, will lead to recommendation to the NRA for certification as NRA RSOs and BSA certification as BB and Archery RMs. These certifications will allow you to run Rifle, Shotgun, Archery, and BB ranges for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers in Tecumseh Council. This training will be conducted by NRA Certified Training Counselors (TC)/Chief Range Safety Officers (CRSO) and BSA Certified Shooting Sports Directors (SSD). You must be 21 or older to become an NRA RSO, and 18 or older to become a BSA Range Master. The NRA Certification is good for life as long as you pay renewal fees every two years. The BSA certifications must be renewed by a BSA SSD every two years.
Upon successful completion of this training, candidates will be recommended for certification to the NRA and after NRA approval will have to pay additional certification fees of up to $50 online to the NRA. NRA Certifications last forever as long as NRA renewal fees of up to $30 are paid every two years. You don’t have to be an NRA member to be an NRA RSO, but the NRA fees are lower for NRA members. NRA Certification and/or Renewal fees are not included in the cost of this training.
