I am indeed a member of an affliated club, but the application form for the course stated it required an NRA membership number for myself.

I have been humming and ahhing about joining so it prompted me to. After all, everyone keeps banging on about how can we expect them to support anyone outside of Bisley if we aren't members in the first place.
Are you sure you need to be a member to do the RCO course?
Might have changed the rules...

I could be wrong about it being a requirement, but it was on the form in the candidate details part of the form right at the start.

NRA membership is not a prerequisite for the RCO Course :good: Unfortunately the form does not make this clear :bad:

Can you not fill the form in using Adobe Pro and add a scanned signature? I can't remember from memory how I filled mine in but I find it surprising that printing it off, filling it and posting it is stopping you from joining. Surely you can't be that keen to join?
It's not the pace of life that concerns me, it's the sudden stop at the end!

Yes that is an option, but Adobe Pro is £80 which I'd rather not buy just to apply for NRA membership. I tried an online pdf editing suite and only when I tried to save my pdf did it ask me for a subscription fee. It's a faff however you do it. If only it was a simple online form where you could enter your info, upload your photo and photocopies... I would have joined 2 years ago.

I don't need to join the NRA, but I wanted to.

I do know this, but I refuse to install acrobat on my machine. Acrobat and Flash are widely exploited apps.

If it does not disrupt from the opened thread : Can anybody tell me how long it takes for a postal NRA membership to be processed , ie : the length of time between they receive my cheque + photo + form + FAC and them to send me the membership # enabling me to book any of their facilities?

If you ask them nicely, they may be able to turn it around quickly for you. Mine was done inside 2 days, and I picked it up from the office...entirely depends on their workload and availability.
