How does it work?

E

Once we completed a pre-assessment of your training needs and agree on the correct unit standard(s), we register you, provide your study material, and start the training process.

E

You complete an open book test at your own time at home to prepare yourself for the training day.

E

On the training day (booked in advanced) you receive a theoretical lesson and then complete a closed book test at our accredited facility.

E

After the completion of your closed book exam, your test is marked.

E

Then you have to undergo a practical (shooting) assessment at our SABS accredited shooting range where qualified assessors will assess you.

E

Once deemed competent, we will issue you a training provider competency certificate with an accredited PFTC certificate for the unit standard you have achieved.

E

GPS Sales and Training will then upload the assessment results to the PFTC, where they will issue the relevant learner achievement certificate.

You can now apply for a competence certificate or firearm license at your nearest South African police station
