The standard course for "taster" sessions in air rifle shooting is the NSRA Youth Proficiency Scheme Tutor's Diploma. This equips candidates to run have-a-go sessions in air rifle shooting and also to take young people for introduction to shooting over a longer period (as in Scouts or other uniformed groups). It is the standard qualification used by members of the British Activity Holiday Association (BAHA) and also written into Scout POR's (operating procedures).

A special YPS Tutor course is also available for air pistol shooting.
