I attended and passed the course; going into it I thought it was going to be more "hands-on," when I felt it was more background on how archery has evolved over the years. There was a lot of talk on Pope & Young, and their archery mentor Ishi, talk on "conservation" vs "preservation"...etc. Not that any of that is bad, I just thought there was going to be more hands-on, holding bows, learning how to nock arrows, more of the mechanics of archery...etc.
In my group there were folks that aced the course that probably didn't know the difference between a nock or fletching, let alone know how to actually nock an arrow and draw the bow back.
I took the course b/c as you mentioned it was a requirement for urban archery. Lastly, I took the course a few years ago, curriculum could possibly be totally different today.
