Range Line Safety Course at Camp Samac, Oshawa
R.L.S.O. Flyer Once again, time has come for our annual
Safety Officer Certification. The course is being held at the Camp Samac Range with 6 sessions per the chart attached on the flyer.
Participants may attend either pellets, archery or both. There is no charge for this course. To register, please fill out a course registration
form found on the White Pine Council web site under Training http://voy.scouts.ca/ca/administration
and send a copy to email@example.com. A hard copy signed by your Group Commissioner is required for submission at the training session. You must be an active registered Scouter,
18 and over.
Any current RLSO who has run a range throughout the past year for another group will only need to write the RLSO test but must attend
the first 30 minutes of any 1 session for updates. All other current RLSOs who have not run a range for another group this past year will
need to retake the 3 or 6 hour course. We strongly encourage a registered Scouts Canada member from each group to consider taking the course if you use the range on a regular basis.
