The course is very well presented and covers all aspects of firearms in a maritime role. Particular attention on the legal issues raised would benefit any operator, experienced or new to the industry.

Mark put together a weapons familiarisation, safety, handling and shooting course for an upcoming expedition that will spend a year in the DR Congo. He provided training on the major weapons systems that the team would be likely to encounter, incl AK47, M-16, H&K G3, SLR, bolt-action rifles and variants of the above. Expedition team members arrived with no effective weapons knowledge but left with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of safe handling and firing of those weapons, and with an understanding of core weapons principles that will, if necessary, allow quick adaptation to any weapons system. The course was rigourous, with a relentless focus on safety, and the team was able to cover a lot of material in a short time. Highly recommended.

This was my second time attending Mark's course as I needed to renew my Firearms Competency Certificate. I managed to book on a course at very short notice which allowed me to be deployable again much quicker than expected. I thoroughly enjoyed the day's training and left feeling comfortable with all the drills on a variety of weapon systems likely to be used out on task. Mark was able to provide excellent training to his students regardless of their current weapon handling ability. I would recommend this course to anyone working or looking to work within the security industry. Thanks Mark see you next year.

This is my second time on Marks course and as with my first experience it was excellent, Marks instruction is as always very professional and provides you with good sound knowledge of various weapon systems you may well come across. The facilities and equipment are more than adequate and well looked after, again money well spent and would highly recommend Shooting Training Solutions to anyone. Thanks. John Henderson.

A well run course, which is always beneficial to get your hands on all different variants of weapons and adapting simplistic teaching methods that Nobby adopts. A good day of hands on and refresh training, and very enjoyable. Always good to meet a well experience man who's been there and seen it. Cheers

A well run course, which provided me with some very interesting knowledge about the industry and intelligence we can be naive to. Nobby was very good at presenting the course and understanding each weapon system. The range shoots were fun and insightful and overall and great day out on the range. Mark has a wealth of experience and knowledge, and it was a true pleasure meeting him.

Excellent course, Nobbys teaching on the various weapon systems shows his vast knowledge and experience. He makes the whole day easy to take in and takes the time to help you if you are struggling. I highly recommend choosing shooting training solutions to anyone who's either looking into doing a maritime weapon competency course or even just a refresher. Well worth the price and travel.

The level of instructions and resources that "Nobby" has is outstanding, a full on day of instruction, mentoring with great one to one if needed. The day is well worth the money and I look forward to doing my refresher next year.

The 2 day course was great value for money, in the two days I was able to learn and fire multiple weapon systems comfidently due to the vast amount of experience and knowledge. Mark is very accommodating and relaxed which eased the learning. I'd highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of getting into the security industry or that has an interest in firearms.

This is my third time doing Nobbys course its still the best course and only course worth doing as this course gives you a tick in the box for any maritime contract thats out there as not all MFCC are recognised by the big players like Shell etc Nobbys course is recognised by every company. I would not go anywhere else for training. Also be warned this is not attendance course your expected to show safety and competence during the course. Money well spent.

I had a 2 day firearms course bespoked for me by Mark "Nobby" Knowles of Shooting Training Solutions as my intention is to eventually go back into the armed forces this year as a reservist. My Father was 22nd SAS Regiment so naturally I am biased and chose Nobby for his SBS/SAS Background. I can say without any hesitation or doubt that this is by far the most thorough and professional firearms instructor and course in the entire United Kingdom. I have always believed that quality matters so I commend STS to anyone wanting to increase their firearms skills regardless of their industry and I look forward to going back and training with STS every 6 months to get the most I can from Mr Knowles incredible experience amassed over his career in the Special Forces. A full 5 stars from me ! Mr J Thompson API.SAC

I needed a firearms training course to support my application for a firearms certificate. Following my initial enquiry, Mark came back very promptly with a course which was specifically tailored to my requirements. A date was quickly arranged thereafter. The day was very instructive and confidence-building. The classwork session in the morning was really interesting and practical and was made real by handling weapons and more particularly by Mark's real-life anecdotes. The range session felt safe/controlled, blending concentration with adventure (beats a day in the office hands-down). Most of it was very helpful. A most enjoyable day all round and I would certainly recommend to others.

I have attended the refresher course at STS now for the last 3 years. The aim is to refresh and test your competency in safe weapon handling. Mark (Nobby) Knowls STS course dose this perfectly. Marks experience and training are excellent and even if you are a little out of practice he will get you up to speed during the days training. Switch on and listen in and he will put you under a little pressure to get you handling all weapon types like a pro. The training comprises of a mix of classroom and range sessions with some up to date int thrown in. The training culminates with a live firing period that is both testing and enjoyable. It is .22 range but the aim is to test your Wpn Handling, Not what calibre you can fire. At the end of the day you will get a certificate from Nobby. I know there are other providers; however having Nobbys name on your certificate carries its weight as well as the ISO 90001 stamp. A excellent day that achieves its aim quickly, effectively, professionally to a high standard with the opportunity to network with others on the course.
