Safety is paramount with all ATC activities and shooting is certainly no exception. Training is an integral part of the system and each cadet is fully trained in whichever rifle they will be using. Supervising staff are similarly trained to deal with any eventualities and to ensure that the range is run safely and efficiently.
Cadets are able to take part in Shooting activities as soon as they join the organisation. Cadets are initially trained on either Air Rifles, or the No. 8 Enfield Rifle. The cadets will undergo a period of training on the specific rifle after which they will be assessed to ensure they are competent and safe to fire the rifle. Once cadets are trained in the safe handling of the rifle they can then be taught marksmanship principles, to improve their performance and confidence.
