Firearm and Range Safety and Proficiency Training

Section 9 - Course Completion Test

This is an ‘open book’ exam which means that you can look back to the relevant Section of this Course to ensure that you fully understand the question and give the correct answer.  

Once completed, an Accredited Club Firearms Safety Instructor will grade it and advise you of your result. You must answer 23 out of 26 questions correctly or you will be required to re-sit the test before attending final training at the club.
