Mark is proving to be our preferred choice for all things firearms. Many are already aware of his quality & his background, but coupled with his professionalism is a very decent nature indeed. Mark will put you at ease, take an interest in your needs, & deliver a programme that caters for it soundly. It is pleasantly intense at times as there is much to learn, but there is no room for error where firearms are concerned. STS are excellent, the standards really are second to none. I would also like to add that the company & its processes are well oiled! Mark will make sure the relevant information is with you in timely fashion, & the follow-up documentation is with you no less efficiently..............something that our organisation has found lacking with some other service providers in this sector! STS are top quality & this course deeply insightful.

I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to carry out fire arms training for the MSO industry- The course was well delivered. It was also an enjoyable day being back on the ranges. Mark's experience and knowledge ensured the day was educational yet fun.

I really needed a few days away for myself. I had been to the day experience and thoroughly enjoyed it and thought, hell with it, lets try the European Experience so I gave Mark a call and he arranged all the rest. Every element of the course was carefully planned and organised by Mark which included Flights, Airport pick up, drop off, Accommodation, Excellent Food and One-2-One Training. Mark was the perfect host and made every effort to make you feel like a real V.I.P. The training was held in the south of France in a well equipped range run by a very friendly couple .They made every effort to make you feel welcome and accommodate to ones needs. The training was second to none ; Marks experience in teaching is quickly and clearly evident .The structured and methodical principles created a safe environment while developing my confidence and knowledge of the weapon systems. The accommodation was fantastic , clean, spacious and quite. Everything was catered for even my eating requirements. This trip was paradoxical, relaxing, calming, exhilarating, edge of your seat stuff but most of all enjoyable. Mark is a very friendly, down to earth guy and I thoroughly enjoyed his company .He is patient with his teaching and modest about his experience. I can not recommend this trip enough ,if you are looking for something special then this is it . Counting down the days till my next trip.

The two days of training with Nobby Knowles although it was quite intense, was very enjoyable. Nobbys experience and method of training was second to none. The emphasis was on safety and competency. Nobby was precise, clear in his instruction and helped me to improve my performance on the range. The course culminated in an intense session on the range. I felt safe at all times under Nobbys supervision and using the weapon systems under hostile conditions definitely took me out of my comfort zone. I am very pleased with the two days and would highly recommend STS Ltd to anyone wishing to have either an introduction to firearms or a more in depth experience. Competency and safety are paramount to Nobby who ensures you understand fully before moving on to the next stages. Highly recommended. I will be returning for further training with Nobby at STS Ltd.

I am 16 and took this course to expand my knowledge on firearms and to avoid the start of any bad habits which it definitely helped with. The course taught me safe handling of firearms and I also had a great time. My instructor, Mark Knowles made this very enjoyable and the way we were taught showed me how to look forward and ahead in my movements and how to catch any mistakes before I actually make them with a firearm

This course delivered exactly what we wanted, a detailed introduction from a military standpoint on how to safely handle firearms from someone with a strong military back round. The class room based work was definitely what we needed and was taught in such a way that it will not be easily forgotten. The real icing on the cake was being taught by Mark Knowles himself. We left feeling safe, confident and more than a little bit privileged.

Shooting Training Solutions Limited came highly recommended to me via a credible source plus 2 military guys had just done the course and were raving about it. So I was 100% satisfied with my choice before I started the course. Mark is without any doubt one of the best disciplined instructors I have ever had the privilege and honour to meet. His knowledge skill experience.. i'm just lost for words really. When you experience the course or meet Mark you will understand. Safe Safe Safe ... Cock Lock Safe.. NSPs Function tests TOETS critical elements of safe weapon handling. There are no second chances, get it right first time. I was very pleased with my results with AK47 / M16 /M4, I didn't just give it 100%, I gave it everything. I was proud to have completed the course successfully. I will return without any doubt.

I found the course to be thorough and perfectly pitched to my level of competency. Mark is able to instinctively know how much to test you in a constructive way so as to bring out the best in you whilst at the same time enabling you to recognise any deficiencies in your practice and correct them. Perseverence is always rewarded. You really wont get any better or well informed teaching than this. Mark draws upon personal experience in a variety of adverse situations to reinforce the value of his practice. As well as being an amazing instructor his organisational and culinary skills are superb. Accomodation in a quiet local village was absolutely perfect. I'm definitely coming back for more.

An excellent introductory course from a very well experienced, talented respected and highly decorated trainer. Mark was focussed and concise with his approach to explaining and passing on his experience on how the weapons work, the differences and the uses in varied terrain. I am now more inspired and interested and will look forward to my next course with Mark fairly soon. Highly recommend this course and trainer (Mark).

First & foremost I was deeply impressed with Mark Knowles (the instructor), his knowledge & experience are literally second to none. Period. Couple that knowledge-base with his welcoming personality, & you have a very serious learning opportunity on your hands. I am already planning (with the help of Mark) to expand my training further & access the more specialist courses available from STS. I have been searching for the best specialist training with relation to the various aspects of the security/CP/CT arena - & Mark has done it all. It is nothing short of a privilege to learn the firearms training element from a man of such distinguished capability. Will Francis

A great 2 days instruction. Really high quality teaching and patience with me being a total novice. Lunch was great and kindly appreciated; facilities are more than adequate. Highly recommended to anyone regardless of your previous experience; you will undoubtedly benefit from a day or two spent here. Thanks Nobby. Hope to see you again in the near future.

Mark's experience and expertise speaks for itself. Not only does he have an unrivalled knowledge he also is an excellent instructor and tailors his instruction to fit your ability and learning style. I learnt a huge ammount and thoroughly enjoyed the two days. I cannot recommend Mark highly enough and I will be returning to add what he has already taught me.

Inspiring, humbling, challenging but incredibly good, safe fun. Nobby is absolutely the real deal. It's a real privilege to listen to his remarkable career. To gain some small insight into the lives, heroic actions and sacrifices our Soldiers and SF make on our behalf every day, often without so much as a paragraph in a paper. The hands on training was very well prepared and delivered. The variety of weapons far exceeded expectations, and the pace and challenge was so well tailored to our group's ability. (We were a mixed group with regards to ability, but at no point did anyone feel left behind, or anyone feel left wanting. Nobby's control of the day was outstanding to that end.) Next stop will be the ultimate experience. Full bore in Europe.
