What is an RBC (Riflemans Boot Camp)? What is an IBC (Instructors Boot Camp)?
RBC (Riflemans Boot Camp)
For some people, attending boot camp represents the fast-track to becoming an RWVA instructor. To others, it's an opportunity to learn a great deal more about rifle marksmanship.
In the words of one of our boot camp graduates: "Its a place where a group of dedicated volunteer instructors take a week or more off from their jobs, and travel to Ramseur (or elsewhere) to instruct a bunch of new guys in both rifle marksmanship basics and teaching that very skill to others..."
During that week instructors and students get to know each other, and if history is any indication, they oftentimes forge lifelong friendships.
IBC (Instructors Boot Camp)
An IBC concentrates on teaching Instructors and potential instructors how to teach at an Appleseed. The emphasis is on how to teach - not how to shoot. Each student at an IBC should already know the fundamentals of how to shoot. An IBC teaches how to instruct others, and how to tell the story of the Three Strikes.
Appleseed is a fast-growing non-profit nationwide community of volunteers. Therefore, it is to be expected that prices, terms, and programs offered are and can be subject to change without notice. Visitors to our site should be cautioned that printed literature can be old/out-of-date, and that only prices and opportunities currently listed on the site are authoritative as to current Appleseed programs and opportunities.
