"...under $300 for a five day boot camp..." Vacation time?
"...I am not sure I'll get much from the newb classes..." Go anyway if you can. You know you'll learn something.
There really isn't a better vacation than one spent shooting. I suspect the $300 is for the course only though. Accomodations, etc. will be extra.
"...at the end you will be a a Safety Officer..." That'd do it for me. Mind you, the CF decided I was good enough not to need the course. Should have done it anyway. Just to spend a weekend shooting on the Queen's nickel.
Spelling and grammar count!
