Scout Leaders and volunteers wanting to become NRA Certified Range Safety Officers may take the Georgia-Carolina Council classes at a significant discount. Scouts may also enroll in these classes if approved by a member of the council Shooting Sports Committee. In exchange for the reduced training costs, the Council Shooting Sports Committee expects certified Range Safety Officers to volunteer and frequently participate in the council’s year-round shooting program and camps.

Boy Scout Troops having NRA credentialed instructors and an NRA certified Range Safety Officer may conduct their own shooting sports activities independent of the district or council.


All Range Safety Officer candidates must register at the NRA Training Website: under SAFETY select – “NRA Basic Range Safety Officer Course” and then select “BSA Only”, enter 30817 as the search criteria, select the appropriate course and enter your information.

COVID-19 protocols require participants to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing requirements in accordance with CDC and BSA guidance.

Lunch will be provided.
