Regulation 21 Refreshment Course

What is Regulation 21 Refreshment?

 

Don't be fooled by sub-standard Compliance Testing!

 

Although Regulation 21 Compliance Testing is not an official Unit Standard, it is compulsory by law as set out in the South African Firearm Control Act 60/2000.

 

This compliance testing is a renewal of your current Handle and Use a (relevant firearm) for business purposes competency. The practical examination must be done in accordance to business unit standards. The Business unit standard course is an advance training exercise that can be presented only by an Intermediate level or higher qualification Instructor.

 

This is NOT based on a basic training exercise and requires shooting, barricade movement and magazine changes within a specific time frame.

 

 

Regulation 21 of the Firearms Control Act 2000 (Act 60 of 2000) states:

 

 

Regulation 21(viii)

 

Ensure that the security officers issued with firearms undergo at least one proper practical training session, at the cost of the security company, at least every 12 months, or within a shorter period as may be reasonable necessary in the circumstances, in the proper and safe handling and use of the relevant firearm and ammunition.

 

 

Regulation 21(s)(ix)

 

Ensure that the security officers issued with firearms attend at least one briefing session, at the cost of the security company, every 12 months or within a shorter period as may be reasonably necessary in the circumstances, during which they are properly informed of the relevant legal principles, rules and procedures and of their legal duties regarding the possession, carrying, safe custody and use of firearms and ammunition issued to them
