Dean Leak, the British Shooting Pathway Manager, said: “ISSF courses are an important part of the technical development of our coaches. The D-Course, in particular, is a very good start to the British Shooting Skills Coach’s development programme.”


This sentiment was echoed by the delegates who suggested that the D-Course provided the essential technical shooting knowledge and insights in to some of the other skills needed to create dynamic and innovative learning environments.  


Course tutor Mr. Christian Schofield thanked the delegates for their enthusiasm and for sharing their knowledge.
