Our instructors lead and facilitate our events. This cadre of volunteer instructors bring to us a variety of backgrounds, certifications and training experiences. ADTA operates its own Instructor training program. 

Range Safety Officers

RSOs assure the safety of everyone at all ADTA events.  Following classroom training, our RSOs are required to serve an apprenticeship under the supervision of senior RSOs and Instructors. Many of our RSOs are also certified by the NRA.
