The NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO) program was developed in response to the demand for a nationally recognized range safety officer certification. To become a NRA Range Safety Officer, you must pass the RSO course and demonstrate that you possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, conducting, and supervising safe shooting activities and range operations.


More Details: If you aren't already an NRA Instructor, attend a live classroom-based course facilitated by an NRA Certified Chief Range Safety Officer. The nine-hour course consists of classroom time and practical exercises conducted on a range.
