Our competency training is accredited by The Professional Firearms Trainers Council and SAPS. In order to apply for a firearm licence within South Africa it is necessary to do competency training and then apply for competency with the South African Police Services. Competency testing consists of an open book test, closed book test and qualification shoot. On completion of the course students will be given a certificate and statement of results. These documents will then be used to apply for competency with the Designated Firearms Office situated at your local Police station.
