Sniper training

I keep reading about a 3 level course for Sniper Training. Where and when do these run? I have wanted to do this for a long time. I have never seen any posts for upcoming courses.

For a moment there, I was thinking. Oh god, 13 year old alert. when I read the title.

But anyway, BA Certification is a course that is ran in ontario (And I think there is one in quebec as well) that you take to prove that you're capable of running a hot firing sniper rifle or something along those lines. May be wrong.

I live in Ottawa,I have no problem going to the GTA for this or Montreal area either. I will just need to know in advance so I can get the time off. I know of at least one other person here in Ottawa that will go as well. Please keep me informed.
Thanks

I'm 46 and what usually doesn't kill me, causes something to hurt the next day, or fall off!

im 30 now and im beginning to find i sweat more and easier lol. im not sore the next morning yet lol. but being a sniper teaches me to be more patient and relaxed. but u still have to be ready to haul ass if thhings get hairy lol. thats why i picked up a raffica as a sidearm for those situations

how is sniping "less work?" I am always crawling through bush, under branches, moving up ridges, moving around for flanking.... not to mention walking up the cursed hill at Hardcorps *those that know the hill... hate the hill*

All this carrying a 22lb DSR-1, Side arm, and in 35c Okanagan weather.... and wearing a gillie when the situation requires. Nothing like wearing a fur coat in the summer!

Its not less work, its just different work.

I'm 24. I can't wait to get old so I can go buy a nice light AEG and just sit in a bunker and spray

Ive got a 5kg CA M24. Ask me how fun it is to lug that beast around. Thats not including my sidearm, mags for both, 3L hydro pouch and a ghillies.

Snipers are NOT easy roles. You want easy roles, go get an LMG.

Nothing worse than getting into the perfect location just as the game whistle goes.
