Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced that the company has established a sponsor relationship with the Southern African Wildlife College. The College, based in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, offers formal training programs for regional wildlife and conservation officers. Since its inception, the College has trained more than 5,200 students from 26 countries throughout Africa.
While the training currently offered at the College focuses on management of protected areas and natural resources, both hunting and conservation organizations have identified the urgent need for proper training for the Professional Hunters (PH’s) who act as guides for visiting sportsmen. The support that Aimpoint is providing will help to facilitate the establishment of a newly created Professional Hunters (PH) training and certification course at the College. This new program will accept its first group of students in June, 2012.
