Certified Level 2/3 BA Operator?

I see these next to operators names when listed under teams and other areas.
Is it a written or shooting course?
Curious about what's involved. It looks as if it gives your name credibility.
What is this exactly?

The BA certification is really only to shoot at higher FPS and isnt Acknowledged at all fields. Now that being said i do not have any nor will i ever have one but some guys do have it and yes it is a course given by a couple fellow airsofters. This is only a broad response as the course entitles a lot of other information just look it up in the search bar at the top youll find lots of info.

It pretty much means you have been taught and understand how to be safe on the field when using an upgraded sniper rifle, as Spawn said. It's overall a day course that teaches you lots of tricks and tips, minimum engagment distances based upon the power of your gun, distance judging and testing, etc. So overall it's a sniper course to make you more effective on the field as an airsoft sniper, with the side benefit of allowing higher than normal velocities (Level 2 up to 500fps, Level 3 up to 550fps) for those fields that allow the certified ones to operate that way. Me, I have Instructor status and Level 3 (not that I advertise it though), yet I run my BA at 400fps (in the past I've run at 500fps and one game, 585fps) the past couple years and find it much more effective than higher velocities.
