Tailored, challenging, safe and highly professional, only what you would expect from instructors with the background that STS offer. I cannot recommend STS highly enough, I achieved more than I had hoped for, in an intense 2 days of one on one training, and will certainly be returning to enhance my skills in the future. Thanks to all at STS.

Diligence, Professionalism and Safety. Exactly what you need when receiving instruction with Weapons. This 2 day course was delivered in a relaxed manner but always with enough force to keep the pressure on advancing your level of skill and ability no matter what your previous experience. Extremely accurate knowledge on all areas of any weapon system is what you receive, which will always be backed up with personal experience coming from the highest of military backgrounds. STS provide outstanding facilities and resources in a discreet location leaving the only bit you have to concentrate on - learning. Rightly so, safety is paramount and you will leave with the full understanding that you have reached that required level. If you are not Safe this is definitely not an 'attendance' course but rest assured Nobby will do everything to coach you to a pass. An excellent 2 full days, many many thanks, See you soon. -!-

The course is delivered by a first rate instructor of impeccable pedigree and the highest standards. The delivery is interesting, thorough, fun and entertaining. After a few years out of the 'circuit' I badly needed some refresher, and could not have asked for better. I cannot recommend this highly enough to anyone.

My husband and I completed a bespoke course with Mark as we will soon be sailing round the world and be in unusual and potentially volatile countries or situations. As a complete novice I was surprised by the amount of information and skills that Mark was able to pass to us in the time we had with him. He is an excellent - and very patient and encouraging - instructor. I did not know what to expect but left the course encouraged, reassured and wanting to learn more - but only from Mark as I trust him completely. If you had told me before the weekend that by Sunday afternoon I would understand the mechanisms and how to use the firearms that were covered I would never have believed it. It has given me a healthy dose of confidence and I will be back to learn more without a doubt.

Had a great day at the range, excellent instruction and an all round good familiarisation of the various weapons used in the maritime industry. I would highly recommend this course, taught by a very experienced instructor with plenty of stories to tell to lighten the day up. Plus the sandwiches were an unexpected treat. I would have no hesitation in reccomending this course and Mark to any of my colleagues or friends. Many thanks.

I attended a one day bespoke firearms course with Nobby. He and the day were both outstanding. Nobby is a tremendous instructor and a tremendous individual. I thoroughly enjoyed both the course and his company. Nobby is happy to teach at the limit of his student's pace and appetite, packing such a lot into one day. I had a lot of fun and I learnt a huge amount in what was an exhausting and exhilarating day.

As the Captain of a Mid sized Motor Yacht,operating wordwide,I recently undertook some bespoke training and ultimately the Maritime Firearms Competancy course with Mark at Shooting Training Solutions, with the aim of getting a better understanding of Firearms in the Maritime environment. Having virtually no Firearms experience other than limited Shotgun use and not coming from a military backround, I needed some in-depth training, in a short space of time. Mark managed to take me from a relative beginer, to being competent enough to achieve the required standard,over the course of a few days. Marks no nonsense approach to the training, coupled with his ability to pass over new information in an interesting and absorbable way, made for a very enjoyable and informative course. Mark is obviously a highly capable and accomplished individual who has the ability to pass on his extensive knowledge and experience in an engaging manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and Shooting Training Solutions for this type of training, indeed, I would suggest it should be your first port of call! I shall certainly be returning for refresher training in the future. Nick Bohnet.

I have never learned as much in two days as I did on this course. The knowledge and instruction (including patience) of the Instructor was second to none. This should be an Industry requirement for anyone using firearms. What Nobby doesn't know about firearms isn't worth knowing.

Extremeley well conducted course. The instructor had tonns of experience and that came across both in the theory part and especially when getting hands on the weapon systems. I left the course confident on all the weapons used and gained a lot more knowledge about their capabilities. Highly recomended.

This course was extremely well delivered and I feel a lot more confident on the weapons, not just weapons I had not used before but also weapons I have used in the past. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking at getting your MFCC or just gaining some more knowledge.
