The course is designed to equip the candidate with the knowledge and skills required to identify and manage safety-related issues on a clay pigeon shoot, specifically those on green field sites.
This is not a course in shoot management; its scope is limited to issues relating to safety, in particular risk assessment. In applying the knowledge and skills learnt on the course, the Safety Officer should always determine with the person(s) responsible for the overall shoot management their exact limits of responsibility, accountability and authority.
The course comprises six modules followed by a practical assessment and written examination:
- Roles and responsibilities
- Health and safety
- Risk assessment
- Shotguns and cartridges
- The law and shotgun shooting
- Clay trap safety.
• An experienced clay or game shooter with knowledge of a large variety of sporting targets.
• Must have held a shotgun certificate for a minimum of four years.
• Experience with automatic and manual clay pigeon traps.
• Ability to complete complicated forms.
• Must be over 21 years old.
