Excellent course. Another relaxed and enjoyable day at STS. A combination of very good instruction from Mark Knowles and good facilities make for a satisfying day. This year is the third time I have attended Mark's course and every time the standard has been excellent. A variety of weapons were used in different positions. The time on range was very good and not rushed allowing for individuals to practice and improved their skills as much as possible.

Very intense and high level of training from Mark who took us from complete novices with little firearms experience to a level able to perform to basic competency level on the range. The weekend was broken up with plenty of anecdotes and presentations about special forces, real life situations and weapons generally which we really loved. Mark has been there seen it and done it all his whole career. Mark's standards are nothing short of excellence and he expects this level from his clients / trainees too. That was hard to live up to sometimes due to the intensity of the drill training which you have to master in order to pass. The faster you learn the further he will take you. Would love to do some more training with Mark in the future. There can be no one better. Thanks again.

A professional and thorough course giving value for money and unrivalled instruction from Mark "Nobby" Knowles. This is a full on day of well grounded and practical instruction covering a review of current legislation, instruction on a number of different weapon systems found in the MARSEC industry and an afternoon of live firing in the indoor range. The course runs at a good tempo and "Nobby's" depth of knowledge and long experience mean that all pupils receive the best instruction and advice there is in the market today. I have no hesitation in recommending this excellent course and STS to those who are looking to refresh their certificate and skills.

Great fun. Found the course very challenging as was my first time handling weapon systems of this type. Mark was very patient, especially when correcting mistakes and while I didn't expect to become an expert in 2 days I was very happy with the progress I made. well presented, probably the most interesting PowerPoint presentation I have ever seen. Will be looking to return with the aim of perfecting my drill techniques and insuring I am competent and safe when handling any weapon system. I am recommending Mark to anyone I know who is interested in shooting. Thanks again!

Another good visit to Nobby at STS. The day was nice and relaxed but thoroughly professional throughout. Lots of practical work and hands-on with a large variety of weapons (all currently used by PMSC's so all relevant) and a whole afternoon on the range..... With a cheeky little competition shoot to finish the day off nicely. Tea and coffee on tap, a good lunch is provided and the facilities are excellent. If you arrive early then head into town as the costa coffee shop is open from 0700. Cheers Nobby, always a pleasure.

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. -!-
