Since marksmanship education and training is a key component of the CMP’s mission, there are many opportunities for experienced shooters and instructors to receive advanced training in marksmanship so it may be passed on to beginners and aspiring competitors.
The CMP, along with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit and CMP Master Instructors, have expanded its outreach to other areas of the country through CMP’s Games matches and Marksmanship 101 classes held at CMP Affiliated Clubs.
The classes are structured toward teaching new shooters (both adults and youth alike), so no past firearm experience is required, though intermediate and advanced marksmen are also welcome to participate. During the course, students will learn basic instruction and firing practices, competition skills and live range firing, as well as compete in a real EIC Match.
Sorry this is late but I just wanted to reach out to you to tell you how great the new JMIC training is. As you know Brad and Katie spent 2 long days here at Zion Benton taking photos and videos of our brand new rifle range and cadets so they could update the JMIC training. I just renewed my training and got to see what they put together for the first time and was blown away. For not being professional photographers, what they did is truly amazing. I’m extremely confident that this training is everything a new JROTC Instructor needs to get started and a great refresher for the Coaches that are now in place.
I’ve know both Brad and Katie for awhile now and I can’t thank the both of them enough for what they’ve personally done for me. Any day, any time I know that I can always call on them for any help I may need. They truly are two awesome professionals that I would definitely want on my team. Additionally, I can’t thank the staff at CMP enough for everything you all do for JROTC and youth marksmanship. Your organization is SECOND TO NONE.
I look forward to another awesome JO/CMP Nationals in a few months. I’ll see you all soon.
