It depends on the load they have, approximate and normally 12-15 weeks for the competence and another 3-6 weeks for the license. Follow up with your DFO.
When both open and closed book tests, practical’s complete, we mark your file, then we print the certificates for you to collect, normally in the same week so you can start your process at the SAPS.
This is up to you; it will take you as long as it takes to fill in the questions. Easy
It depends on person to person, around one hour.
Then you redo them again, no extra charge!
Normally we shoot on a Sat from 9am-1pm

Phase 1: PROFICIENCY TRAINING
Phase 2: SAPS COMPETENCE
