Firearms Safety Courses


Please note members receive a discount on booking fees, if you are a member please login first to book onto courses.

Country Sports Ireland has developed a unique new national shooting competency course that will equip learners with a comprehensive knowledge of shooting sports, relevant legislation and safe shooting practices. The course will be of particular interest to newcomers to shooting sports who wish to demonstrate competence but may also help more experienced shooters develop their knowledge and enjoyment of shooting sports generally.

The course is delivered by fully trained and experienced Lantra approved instructors who provide detailed information and practical demonstration in a relaxed and ‘learner friendly’ environment.

A certificate of competence is issued to learners who successfully complete a practical shooting assessment – where the emphasis is on safety rather than accuracy. There is no formal written assessment required.

The Country Sports Ireland ‘Firearms Safety Course’ is formally approved by Lantra, a leading training awarding body for the countryside sector and will be delivered at Country Sports Ireland affiliated shooting ranges and clay target shooting grounds nationally.
