    Default New FA competency application

    Good morning all.

    Last week Friday I managed to finally get to my local SAPS to collect the paperwork for my competency20171002_060610.jpg application.
    apon receiving the paperwork, I also received a list of things that I need to submit along with the completed documents.

    Now, this is my first time doing all of this, and have heard more or less of what is expected, but I would just like to get some opinions if this is correct what they are requesting from me, cause it seems a little strange..

    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
    (apologies if the attached pic is not showing right, I am not familiar yet on how to post pics on this site...)

    The motivation letter is bullshit.

    I want SAPS to issue me a competency certificate so I can buy a firearms.

    That is the most they'd get from me.

    It depends from one DFO to another, some want the letters others not. The DFO is supposed to write the motivation on the application form.

    For a competency??

    IFAIK the DFO writes a recommendation and not a motivation on your app.

    That has always been DFO dependent.

    There is no motivation requirement for competency.

    Do they also need interview letters?

    Interesting.

    My motivation for competency is.
    Because the SAPS forces me to have a competency before I can purchase a firearm. Which I have motivation for.
    Other than that I have no motivation to obtain a competency.
