SSAA Victoria has developed a Practical Firearms Training Program: Introductory course to help develop rifle shooting skills for people with or without a firearms licence.It has also been recognised as a firearms safety course by Victoria Police meaning completion of the course satisfies a requirement of obtaining a firearms licence.
Held at either SSAA Victoria’s Springvale or Eagle Park ranges, the Practical Firearms Training Program is designed to instil best practice and essential knowledge for new and intermediate firearms users.
Training will commence at 9am with an expected completion time of 4:30pm for mid-week and weekend courses. We also offer mid-week evening courses which start at 6pm with an expected completion time of 9pm over two consecutive nights.
(Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to make sure we get started on time).
The course has practical and theory components and will cover all basic aspects of firearm use. The theory component is hands on and covers all you should know prior to using a firearm.
The course will also cover shooting skills and techniques and post-shooting procedures. We will then practice what we have learned under the supervision of two qualified trainers and a range officer.
We will provide ear and eye protection to all participants on the day. This is mandatory during the practical component of the course. Participants should wear enclosed footwear.
The course cost includes hire of .22 rifle and ammunition, however, you are welcome to bring your own .22 rifle and ammunition for sighting in.
Participants must bring a Government issued Photo ID (i.e. Drivers licence, passport, etc) on the course day.
Please provide your full name when registering as it appears on your ID.
