2. Non-registration: If you do not register with FGASA, you cannot write the FGASA exam and do the assessment at the end of the course.

Due to the legal and professional requirements of being a Field Guide, there are certain steps that any student wishing to do firearms training is required to do. It is a lengthy process to get everything accredited and certified with the correct institutions, but these need to be done as you could be held responsible if anything happened to go wrong and you do not have the correct paperwork. Also, there are requirements that have to be met before being allowed to attend the EcoTraining courses.
NB: If any students want to do rifle handling on an EcoTraining course, then a SASSETA certificate is a MUST! Students can still attend the courses if they don't have SASSETA, but will not be able to participate in the rifle handling.
