First, the information wasn't extraneous, it directly related to the topic at hand, and was validated by other members in the class who are familiar with SOP in such situations.
Second, I had reviewed the RSO course materials before the class and since we covered the required material in detail in class I can assure you the training was done properly.
Third, I don't see any need to report the CRSO that conducted the training since the prescribed training was done completely and well.
Finally, have a dancing banana for no reason. :banana:
so you're telling me because someone else in the class validates something it makes it ok.
so you are sitting in a formal classroom setting, not on break BS'g, w/a doctor, sorry did you mention if the doc was an ER clinician or perhaps ENT or better yet a peds doc as all doc's know the same thing with the same experience level since they all have MD after their name; and the emt, did you say they were a basic or intermediate or full blown paramedic as they also have the same training and experience level; and they both said 'sure what the CRSO said as instruction sounds good to us.
now you have differing levels of competence which other students, like you did, take it as gospel cuz the alleged doc and emt agrees with the CRSO's statements of how the world works.
therefore, a newly graduated RSO from your class then gets in a real world situation and applies what the good CRSO said was gospel, as agreed by MD and EMT, and things go down hill in a hand basket, and ppl are hurt or property damaged. RSO is blamed and held accountable. Said RSO states... well the CRSO instructed me on this in class, which was agreed by MD and EMT. CRSO is hauled in front of judicial proceedings as defense witness...sure i said that cuz i thought it was useful information. NRA training department hauled into the mess for which ever side you want to put them on...and their comment will be... 'sorry the material presented by the CRSO was not in our lesson plan;
with a minimal leap of faith guess who has now taken full responsibility...the RSO as well as the CRSO. of course the organization is also to blame since the RSO is associated there.
oh wait, you looked over the RSO material first...did you see the extraneous material the CRSO covered mentioned in the text?
so if you happen to be sitting with a bunch of LEs and they state their shooting range and verbal practices and verbal protocols are ok, which happens to go against established norms, then all is well in the world? how would that work if you were the RSO on their range?
so when you state you are a trained NRA RSO, it means the same level of training throughout the community...it does not mean your CRSO added nor deleted material from the prescribed course material, cuz the CRSO thought it was germane to their way of thinking.
sorry, i personally would not like to defend myself in a judicial situation and discover my training did not follow prescribed course material. reviewing the student's text does not show you what the CRSO is supposed to cover...sorry.
you can defend your banana but your CRSO did you and your fellow classmates an injustice.
and your condescending attitude is not appreciated
