At the completion of each level, you will be awarded a certificate and the skill rocker for that level. On completing the Pro-Marksman level, you will also be awarded the Pistol Qualification Patch. There is an additional $20 fee for non-NRA members for the Distinguished Expert Award package (free for NRA members).
At the completion of the Pro-Marksman level, you will be awarded the Pistol Qualification Patch, Pro-Marksman Rocker Patch, and the Pro-Marksman Award Certificate. At the completion of each level from Marksman to Expert, you will receive the appropriate level’s Rocker Patch and Award Certificate. The Distinguished Expert level’s award is handled through the NRA for NRA members. Upon completion, the NRA will mail the Distinguish Expert Rocker Patch, Medal, and Certificate. For non-NRA members, there is an additional $20 award fee to receive the Distinguished Expert Award package (free for NRA members).
