Archery GB Instructor
About the course
The Archery GB Instructor Award is the industry’s leading training course for archery. The course is designed for learners with little or no prior experience of archery. Learners must be at least 17 years old by the first day of the course. The course is 2.5 days long and includes a practical assessment. The successful learner will gain an Archery GB Instructor Licence which lasts for three years. After this it can be renewed by successfully completing an online renewal module. The licence does not provide the instructor with insurance.
These are some of the skills you will learn on the course:
• How to shoot arrows
• How to prepare and deliver mini sessions
• How to select appropriate equipment
• How to set up a range
• How to ensure safety on the range
Renewing your licence
To remain as a recognised archery Instructor for Archery GB, your Instructor Award licence needs to be renewed every third year following your original course completion date. We will send you a reminder letter and guidelines on how to renew in advance of the expiry date stated on your certificate. It is your responsibility to renew within the three-year period.
It costs £40 (plus a £1.19 processing fee) to renew your licence, which you can now do online by successfully passing a learning module, to ensure your knowledge is up to date. You’ll get the latest Archery GB Instructor Award handbook to download. Once you’ve successfully completed the learning module, we will post to you an up to date certificate. You need to achieve at least 75% to pass, and you have two attempts. If you are unsuccessful on the second attempt, you will need to pay again to repeat the learning module.
So that we can keep your licence information up to date, please remember to let us know if your contact details change. To change your address please complete the Change of Address form below:
