RSO281 – NRA Range Safety Officer
This is the official, 9-hour NRA Range Safety Officer course leading to the nationally-recognized “RSO” certification. RSOs are sought after by clubs and ranges who may receive a discount on their insurance costs when NRA Range Safety Officers are employed and present during live fire sessions. In addition, BSA and other youth organizations often require the RSO Certification.
Although this is a “student” not an instructor level course, it is intended for those with a solid background and experience with different types of firearms and actions. RSOs must be 21 years of age or older.
Note that RSOs have access to the NRA Instructor Portal just like Instructors and therefore will need either an NRA member # or they will be issued a non-member ID # by the NRA.
