Noob Question - RSO Course

Just joined and I’m looking for an RSO or RSS course. Is there one offered through USCCA?

I’ve searched this forum and the web page and can’t find a link for it. Any help is appreciated.

Hey Dawn, this is newish. Is there a periodic renewal fee on this like with NRA? I quit the NRA last year.

This is new-ish! :slight_smile:

At this time RSO certification is indefinite, there aren’t requirements as of now to maintain it.

I have taken the course and was an NRA RSO as well. I’ll be using my USCCA RSO training going forward. I do review my elearning from time to time (in multiple different areas/cerifications) to ensure I’m staying up to date and refreshing my memory on all of the details. I always find something I can improve up on when I review.

Thanks for the reply. I think you may have just sold me on it. The NRA RSO cert was actually expensive, because the market value is low and you had to be an NRA member + pay too much for the cert every other year to keep it. It makes more sense to do a one time fee web-based course for this. However, there is something to be said for going "hand on for the training of clearing, malfunctions, and disarming a distressed shooter. But most NRA RSO courses don’t include this, because it isn’t required. Just something you can do in person that you can’t do via the Internet.

I’m curious to know how the USCCA “certifications” are viewed by ranges. Are they even relevant?

@Hayser, the USCCA RSO Certification is accepted at the individual range level just like the NRA RSO course as the USCCA is recognized as a National Training Organization.
