How do I host a course?
Answer: Hosting a course is easy. Once you have decided to host a class, you will be sent a checklist tofollow. First you might consider browsing the Defensive, Competitive, or Specialty classes on the website to see which one you might be interested in. Then, your responsibilities are:
- YOU MUST Fill out the hosting request form (for tracking and scheduling purposes): Request a Class
- Find a local range that would allow a host course.
- Coordinate for all range logistics, including target supplies. TheMTB Checklist.pdf will guide you through your responsibilities. Please call Mike (918-978-0736) with any questions.
- Help market and promote the class to your friends.
- Ensure that potential students know how to sign up for the class.
- Provide administrative support for the class (only when needed).
What is the class price for a hosted course?
Answer: All two-day courses (in the U.S.) are $395 per person, and the students will also be required to pay range fees or be a member of the host range at times. The price includes a discount code for the class manual and DVD’s if the student desires to purchase them.
What is the class minimum/maximum size?
Answer: I will travel to your location for a minimum of 10 paying students (in some rare cases 8), and will allow up to 16 (some exceptions) into the class for basic classes.
How do I find a range to host the course?
Answer: Most potential hosts are already members of a local range somewhere, but if not you can find ranges by using google or any search engine on a computer. Ranges might also be listed in the yellow pages or phone book. Range requirements for most Shooting-Performance courses are very simple and almost any range with an adequate and safe backstop will work. Mike Seeklander and any supporting instructor for Shooting-Performance has a full instructor liability insurance policy, and is a federally certified instructor, documentation can be provided if necessary.
What are the benefits to hosting a course?
Answer: Free training! If you want to take a class, and help host the course, your slot if free!
What are my duties as the course host?
Answer: Host duties are pretty simple, as listed in MTB Checklist you will be sent when you take on the responsibility of a course host. Here is the short list-
- Provide Class Description and Market/Fill The Class (it is the responsibility of the coordinator to help fill the class): Class descriptions, as well as other information can be found on the S-P website here: Classes.
- Ensure Pre-Requisites Are Met: Each student must meet certain pre-requisites.
- Facilitate timely sign up and payment: All payments will be taken by Shooting-Performance but you will be responsible for ensureing students sign up in a timely manner.Note: Range fees are the responsibility of the students, not Shooting-Performance. Class coordinator is responsible to help communicate this.
- Reserve/Inspect/Coordinate Training Range and Supplies: As the class coordinator, all range and equipment arrangements will be handled by you. This includes reserving a classroom, range, targets, and props. The host group will provide targets and paint, but in certain cases expenses for targets and paint may be relayed to and reimbursed by Shooting-Performance if incurred.
- Relay Information to Students, Such as Gear List: The class will require that the students bring what is on the gear list. The gear lists for each class can be found on the class description pages.
