Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.
Location: Cambridge Gun Club
The course is aimed at equipping the candidate with the knowledge, understanding, skills and awareness required to identify and manage issues pertaining to safety on a clay pigeon shoot, with specific reference to shoots on green field sites.
This is not a course in shoot management, and limits its scope to issues pertaining to safety, and particularly 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.
It 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.
Pre course requirements
• An experienced clay or game shooter with knowledge of a large variety of sporting targets.
• Held a shotgun certificate for a minimum of 4 years.
• Experience with automatic and manual clay pigeon traps.
• Ability to complete complicated forms.
• Must be over 21 years old.
