I mention the NRA because they have a lock on the nations LEO training by being the certifying agency, they have control.

Vern, you say worthless, do you have any experience or knowledge of this course?

I have two graduate degrees in education, and have worked in training both in the military and in industry after retiring. The problems with this course are:

1. You can learn reloading from any good reloading manual. After all, the makers of powder, primers, dies, scales, etc., have a vested interest in providing you with simple, easy-to-learn instructions.

2. Good training requires interaction. You can do that with an open book on the bench, as you walk yourself through the steps.

3. What is "certification?" You pay for it, but what do you get from being "cetified?"

4. If you need expert advice, forums like this, with all sorts of people ready to help are as good as it gets, and free, too.

Total & absolute Scam!

There is no such thing as Phoenix State University™.
It is some scammers website!

While you get your "CERTIFIED RELOADER" certificate, you can probably get a twofer for the "Holistic and Wellness Counselor" certificate too!

They might even throw in the "Chess Instructor" one if you ask nice!
And pay extra for it!

Ok, sit real close to the computer and raise your left hand. Now repeat after me.............. Then send me your check and I'll send you your certificate, printed on genuine Charmin.....

What they are probably doing is filling out the paperwork for a Class 6 Ammunition Manufacturer's License for BATFE. Some will fall for it, but hopefully most won't.

The biggest fear I have is some "politician" will see this and think it's a good idea, having no knowledge whatsoever about the sport..

Hope this helps.

In my State, you can no longer buy Smokeless Powder, Primers, and other components unless you are classified as a "Professional Reloader" or unless it is a source of income.

Whats this? Is there really a State with such draconian laws?

rc,

You mean you are not sending in a check for $99 for your "Home Pet Care License?" I am not quite sure just how to walk my dogs. I just spoke with my Chihuahua, and he thinks it is a good idea.

Thanks for all the honest input. I kind of figured as much, but just wanted to get it some feedback.

I sent them an email asking for a course syllabus and who gives out the accreditation. I will let you know if I get a response. :)
