The third and final session shall give students the opportunity to handle and shoot firearms under the supervision of the instructor, who shall also assess students’ grasp of safe handling before qualifying them for an AMACS recommendation to apply for the Police licence. Students shall be provided with eye and ear protection for this session unless they already possess them.
