In the course of firing, there is a check that the shooters have skills in safe handling of weapons.
When the learning process is completed, conduct exams with standard theoretical questions.

Successfully passed exam course participants receive certificates.
How to choose a training center?
Most of the weapons skills training centers offer standard programs, but lately some centers offer distance learning services.
In many cities there can be more than one weapon center. Before signing a contract with one of them, it is desirable to make sure that all the conditions for the normal assimilation of theoretical and practical skills are created in it.
The center should have:
- License entitling to study;

You should know that if the center does not have a license, students will not be allowed to take exams. It is advisable to make sure that the school has the necessary hunting rifles. The process of learning with small-caliber weapons will not be as effective. It is worth paying attention also to the instructors. It is clear that it should be experienced masters of their craft.
