In conjunction with the classroom sessions, students will also receive hands-on instruction and individualized assistance.

How to Register:
Please visit the CMP Competition Tracker website and set up the required account for AMC registration.
Applicants must register via the CMP Competition Tracker system between November 20 and November 27. Registrants will become part of an electronic lottery used to randomly assign the 20 available seats for each class date. An additional 20 participants will be assigned to a stand-by list for each date. These stand by lists have been established due to a historically high cancellation rate and will be utilized to fill classes as cancellations occur.
Registration for multiple classes is permitted, but no applicant will be selected for more than one slot. NO FORMER AMC PARTICIPANTS MAY REGISTER FOR 2016.
A confirmation email will be sent to each accepted participant, including a link to a fillable form required to complete the registration process. This form is to be completed and submitted electronically by January, 31 2016. Failure to meet this deadline will result in forfeiture of your slot to the next applicant on a wait list.
By clicking the “submit” button on the completed electronic form, participants are consenting to allow the CMP to submit the information supplied on the application to the FBI national instant criminal background check system (NICS) to verify eligibility for the course and rifle purchase.
NO EMAIL will be sent to students who are not selected for either a class or waitlist.
The Fine Print:
Total cost for the 2016 AMC is $1,830. The $800 course tuition fee will be billed immediately following registration, upon receipt of the electronic form ($150 of your class tuition fee should be considered as a non refundable “registration fee”). Late cancellations, made within 30 days of the class start date, will be subject to forfeiture of an additional $300.
Students will build and purchase a CMP Special Rifle during the three-day course. The receiver on this rifle will be of USGI manufacture and may vary dependent upon availability. The cost of the rifle is $1,030.00. This portion of the fee will be billed on Day 2 of class. Residents of Alabama or Ohio will be charged applicable sales tax.
