Overall an extremely well run day, Marks experience and knowledge is impressive and well earned. As others have said drills ran through in a digestible way with a generally informal manner throughout the day. I can only say the one thing that could be improved on is full bore centre fire, there are obvious restrictions to this and not going to bang on about it … good day cheers mark

Mark Knowles is a very good instructor. It's not about just reading through information but he explain and demonstrate it well. Enough time to practice and have hands on. Clearly knows what he's on about. Will recommend anyone to do the course. Money we'll spent...

Considering that this is only a one day course, KNobby has managed to cram a large amount of activity and learning into it. The firearms training/assessment are the meat and bones of the day and the standards KNobby has set are high, but not prohibitive. Anyone who choses to attend this course will pass this course - so long as they to KNobby's instruction. KNobby has also done an excellent job in his briefings package, he has married a great deal of diverse information on the industry and worked it into a comprehensive presentation - background, current and future trends, legal implications/complications within the marketplace and anticipated market flow. I thoroughly recommend course to anyone within the industry.

Having attended both the MFCC and the yearly refresher I fully recommend this course to anyone who requires a firearms competency in the industry. The variety of weapon systems trained on during the day ensure that no matter what Maritime company you might end up working for, you will be covered. The training is thorough and high standards are maintained throughout.

This course is not just a day at the ranges. Excellent instruction throughout keeps you interested and engaged with all skills and drills taught by an instructor who obviously has a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject. With a maximum of four students per course you are assured an excellent opportunity to practice old skills and learn new ones.

A detailed course firstly starting with weapon safety drills, structured step by step phases to learn the ins and outs of the firearms listed and a hands on course with live fire exercises. Covering all aspects of safety while on the range and while wearing a full carrier with the according gear. I highly recommend this course.

For anyone who is thinking of starting in the maritime industry or anybody who requires their firearms ticket, this course is a no brainer! All of the top maritime security companies are more than happy to except this course and openly encourage you to do this specific course as they no you will be trained to the highest standard once you have completed it. The instructor is very professional and friendly throughout, his background within the military doesn't get much better. The course overall was very enjoyable and I learn't a lot.

I recently attended the one day Maritime Firearms Competency Course run by Mark Knowles of Shooting Training Solutions. Mark is a comsumate professional with vast experience and his course reflected both these qualities. The course emphasised safety and the real-world application of the skills being taught, making it highly relevant to small teams operating aboard merchant vessels. The equipment and facilities available were first class, which was necessary to bring them up to the extemely high standard of instruction provided by Mark. In addition, the price was very competitive compared to similar courses. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to any Maritime Security professional.

it was evident from the start that the instructor (Nobby) new what he was talking about.The course itself was a good setup with 4 blokes having more time on the weapon.For those people looking for something worth their money then I would reccommend Shooting Solution and I know that you wont be disappointed.After leaving that course I was happy that I have gained more knowledge in to other weapon system that you only stumble once in a blue moon .

Excellent and extremely knowlegdgeable Instructor KNobby keeps everthing simple and factual The course is a complete package from a very interesting and informative powerpoint covering the History of maritime security industry , Short introduction to his career and skills to the various weapons that are used in the maritime industry. The day is broken down into several sections moving from the classroom , which is perfect for the small number of candidates ( maximum of 4 ) to the Range. The instruction part of the day in the range is split into Dry drills on a number of weapons and then warm up shots, then Zeroing the weapons to the 20 pound challenge - not won this time !! It is a pass/fail cousre not just a bums on seats course, KNobby keeps the classes small so he can assess everyone at all times and gives advice and feedback whenever it is needed. The cadidates are emcouraged to speak up if in doubt and ask questions. During the dry drills candidates give instructions to each other as they perform the NSP's, Stoppage drills etc All that KNobby asks is KISS ( keep it simple stupid ) and Safety Remember COCKER / LOCKER / SAFETY, then 1,2,3,4 - nothing difficult all kept simple Thanks one of the best courses I have ever attended.

The 1 day STS course had a ratio of 4 students to 1 instructor, enabeling excellent interaction and plenty of hands on practice with a range of industry specific weapons. There is a lot of information to take in but due to a superb knowledgeble instructor and a relaxed but mature and professional atmosphere, the whole day was informative and hugely enjoyable. Well worth the money and more importantly well worth the refresher training with plenty of range time.
