What to write in a shooting certificate
Before you start the designing part, it is vital to understand the kind of words you need to put in your certificate. Now, this depends on many factors like the following ones:
- Is the certificate for successfully completing a safety officer’s course/NRA course?
- Is it to recognize some friend who shot a target for the first time in his or her life?
- Is it for recognizing the efforts of a shooter who has recently established a national or local record in shooting sports?
- Is it a certificate for participation in an Air-Rifle March program?
- Is it for winning a shooting competition in your locality?
If it is for winning a shooting competition then again, you need to care, as there are multiple types of shooting certificates. Here, I am giving you a glimpse of some of the popular shooting competitions.
- Recreational Shooting competition
- High-Power Rifle Competition
- Pistol Target Shooting Competition
- Cowboy Action Shooting Competition
Yes, you need to keep all these in your mind….
The wording of the certificate will depend a lot on the same. You need to put an eye-catching header like the ones that I have written in the below shooting certificate templates.
Either you can go for a minimal text that will consist only of recipient’s name, the name of the year, the signature of the authority or you can go for a detailed text like the below-shooting certificate template.

Now that I have done with explaining to you all about the shooting certificate wordings, your main concern must be that after preparing the text, how will you design and what does a shooting certificate will look like at the end of the day.
