Course and assessment details

Commercial harvesters need to demonstrate the capacity to handle firearms safely, understand the National Code of Practice for the Humane Shooting of Kangaroos and Wallabies for Commercial Purposes and demonstrate shooting competency as designated under the Code.

SSAA Victoria delivers a Commercial Kangaroo Firearms Proficiency Accreditation Course that assesses those requirements. The course is recognised by the Government for the purpose of issuing kangaroo harvest tags to commercial operators.

Harvesters also need to complete the AMPSS00018, Game Harvester Skill Set course before they can harvest kangaroos commercially. SSAA Victoria does not offer that course at this stage.

 

The course has practical and theoretical components. The theory is run from 9am until approximately 12pm and covers firearms safety and the National Code of Practice.

Participants will then have their skills assessed on the range under the supervision of two qualified assessors and a range officer. The practical assessment consists of placing a total of 5 shots out of 5 in a 75mm diameter circle at 100 metres. This is referred to as the National Humane Shooting Test Target.

Please bring your own ear and eye protection. Hearing protection is mandatory during the practical component of the course. Participants should wear enclosed footwear.

Participants are required to provide their own firearm and preferred ammunition with a minimum calibre of .204 Ruger.  Please ensure your firearm is sighted-in prior to attending.

Participants must show an original Government-issued photo ID (i.e. Drivers licence, passport, etc) on the day of the course.
