CLUB INSTRUCTOR

In an ideal world, half of the members in all the clubs of Australia would be trained Club Instructors - this is a simple, one day practical workshop to provide the basics of being able to assist a visitor or new member to the club, with the catchphrase "get them safe, get them shooting!"

THIS COURSE IS A ONE DAY PRACTICAL WORKSHOP IN YOUR STATE

CLUB COACH COURSE

The course is comprised of two parts: Online work and practical workshop.

TRA is very pleased to be now able to offer an online component as part of the Club Coach learning. This consists of a number of modules with Workbook Tasks, and would be completed at home in the participant's own time prior to the week-end workshop.

The practical workshop conducted after the completion of the online modules work, takes the experienced shooter on the path to becoming a coach, with skills such as communication, coach planning, best practice in technical skills and more.  The coach must demonstrate active, practical work as a coach prior to accreditation being confirmed.

The Club Coach Course is accredited by TRA with the names and details being noted by Shooting Australia.
