Why do we have driving instructors?
Yes we pick up the rules of having a gun but by golly we pick up bad habits too
They are good first ambassadors to the world of Air Rifles
They teach correct gun safety/procedure yes we all tell members /visitors but someone who has done a course with a certificate is going to be listened to more than a nobody.
Rules to some competitions as not all coaches will be involved with all aspects of Air rifle/pistol comps.
The best position for the disciplines and correct for competitions possibly how to set up scopes/rifles etc
Also shows its taken seriously to the outside world with Scouts/Schools etc getting pupils to have a go they wouldnt just let a bunch of gun weilding weirdos loose on them.
They need to show some kind of responsibility this course shows the world we take air rifles seriously.
These people are worth thier weight in gold
