Section Ix Alternate Qualification Courses

Units should conduct rifle qualification on a standard record fire range. Convenience and comfort should not be the prime consideration when choosing a range. The known-distance alternate course is used by all components of the Active Army, US Army Reserve, and Army National Guard when a standard record fire range is not available. The 25-meter alternate course is used when neither a standard record fire nor a known-distance range is available for rifle qualification. Units are permitted to use the 15-meter scaled alternate course only if a 25-meter range is not available.

The official records of personnel who are using an alternate rifle qualification course are noted to distinguish alternate qualification ratings from standard record fire course ratings. For example, official personnel records are annotated as follows: JONES, John Q. 000-00-0000 Expert 36 (RF) JONES, John Q. 000-00-0000 Expert 38 (KDAC) JONES, John Q. 000-00-0000 Expert 38 (AC)
