While the ticking of all 5's may seem lazy and not thought through that is how I feel. On all points this course delivers and does so well. The course organiser and incidently instructor is direct and to the point and you are very aware of exactly where you stand without them being rude. The training caters for people with prior experience of firearms and firearms safety and teaches some very useful points not just about weapons and their handling but very importantly on the legal ramifications and a whole variety of other possible issues to expect in the maritime security sector and private security as a whole. Laslty there was use of power point but happily not too much. I have participated in many training courses within the Police and typically the less interested the intrsuctors the more they rely on powerpoint rather than delivering the material themselves. This course avoids "death by powerpoint". Overall I'd have no issue whatsoever directing anyone I trust to this course.

A big thanks to Mark at STS for such a good course. Very proffesionally run and done so in a relaxed and welcoming manor. Of all the firearms courses I've now attended this one was the best due to the level of coaching we all received and I would happily recomend this course. Many thanks, Glynn

A very well run course from the outset, with a an Instructor (Nobby) that has a lot of proffesional knowledge and is more than willing to share his experience and knowledge with the his clients on the course. The class room section of the course was relevant, interesting and most of all current to what is happening in the world today in our area of operation. The dry drills were good and were paced at the speeed of the clients. The drills taught/refreshed were most all safe and were transferable to many other weapons systems. The live fring in the afternoon was well paced and progressive with the shoots building up slowly from static shooting to a certain ammount of movement on the firing point with the weapon. But most of all it was done within a safe environment and well maintained envionment. The weapons used were well maintained with minimal stoppages. The last shoot was a competative shoot which was an excellent finish to the course. I would like to thank Nobby for a very enjoyable Saturday in the classroom and on the range.

A well planned 1 day course with a highly experienced Instructor, I started the day at the bottom off the pack with a poor perfomance on the range and finished the day on top due to the instructor vast knowledge and good tuttion. overall good course.

A very informative and proffesionally run course. Thoroughly enjoyable and delivered at a level that is easy to follow and understand. I found this course very helpful and can say that I honestly do feel far more confident on a wide selection of weapons. I will certainly use STS in the future for my Maritime Firearms courses, and would recommend to friends and colleauges.

This course is ran over one day but the infomation gained during the day is execptional, the wealth of knowledge of the instructor is equal to the infomation gained. The arrair of weapons used during the day is Considerabyl above the standard I was expecting which makes this course intense but very enjoyably.

Just completed the 1 day firearms competency course with STS. An excellent course ran safely and professionaly but also good fun, the weapons syste s on hand are excellent giving you a good understanding of all weapons systems you are likely to come across on the security circuit! great value for money!

When I did the competency course a year ago I was very impressed with the value and content of the course, I returned to do the refresher in Sept 2014 and was extremely impressed, We also fired a range of weapons commonly seen in the industry, the former UKSF instructor works very hard to stay on top of his game and I believe he has achieved just that, he really goes above and beyond the call of duty to provide relevant up to date content. Since doing the original course a year ago I have met many people who have completed this course, I am yet to meet anyone who having completed it hasnt been impressed with it. I would recommend the course to anyone

Course is well structured and provides a high standard of training on a variety weapons. Students benefit from the instructor's wealth of specialist knowledge and industry advice. As the Maritime Security sector becomes more regulated, I can not recommend this course highly enough for both experienced operators and those new to the industry.

This is the 4th time I have attended a course with this company, I believe that speaks volumes in itself. The training has always been of the highest standard and it's very well presented and structured, it's in a relaxed atmosphere but under strict guidelines and safety is paramount. I learn new things each time I attend the course and the coaching on the shooting side is great.

This is the first time that I have done a course with Shooting Solutions, and I have been very impressed from the intial course query that I sent, through to receiving course instrcutions before then going on to do the course which I subsequently passed. Mark "Nobby" Knowles who ran the course, is an individual who has a vast amount of experience and knowledge which he uses to educate and instruct those personnel on the course. The fact that there are only 4 students on the course, means that the instructor/student ratio is 4 to 1. This also means that there is plenty of hands on opportunity with each and everyone being able to go through the weapon drills, whilst at the same time-being monitored by "Nobby". There is no opportunity to hide and Nobby expects the only the highest of standards if individuals are to pass. There are also numerous weapon systems that the students are taught to use to do their drills and to conduct test firing. The test firing shoot is excellent due to various commands that are being dictated to the individauls, its thus imperative that students pay attention at all times and focus on the commands that are set before them as well as ensuring that they are safe with the weapon at all times. The course is set in relaxed surroundings with plenty of refreshments also available. I would therefore recommend this course to anyone who only wants to get the best instruction and thereby ensuring that all their Shooting Solutions are met in the UK.

Excellent course, delivering both background on the use of firearms in the maritime environment and hands-on training with some of the most common platforms used. Combines classroom and range work, with practical assessments on your individual weapon handling performance throughout the day. Entire course is delivered professionally, in a relaxed, but very safe environment. Cannot recommend this course more highly - excellent.

The course was well structured with enough breaks inbetween, the Instructor was extremly knowledgable and helpfull. I was concerned before coming on this course as I had heard a few rumours about how easy it was to fail.... this is not the case, as long as you bring the right attitude and listen, the day is a pleasant and productive Refreshers Course, thanks again to Nobby for a good day

I have used this training provider twice now over 2 consecutive years. On both occasions I found the course informative, professional and very well structured. The 2nd time round for the refresher there was new content and also a larger selection firearms to learn the safe handling of. It certainly was not just a regurgitation of the initial competency course. Having complete the course myself and knowing most of the other operators I work with have also attended and passed this course there is a sense of reassurance regarding the safe handling of weapon systems while on task.

This is not a Duty Attend Course by any means. A well put together day, pitched at the right level for a Refresher Course and delivered by a very professional instructor. You will leave this Course at the end of the day Confident, Competent and Safe. A Quality Course at a very Competitve Price.
