CMP Issues Classification Cards to Qualifying Competitors

Those who have earned designated classification status within Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) competitions will soon have proof of their achievements, with specially designed carrying cards set for distribution.

The cards will display the individual’s name, CMP Competition Number and all classification ranks (Marksman, Sharpshooter, Expert, Master and High Master), as well as the date each classification was reached and average score.

Cards will also be available for download through CMP’s Competition Tracker site. To download, login to the Competition Tracker page (https://ct.thecmp.org) and go to “My Account”. Under the tab titled “Competitions and EIC Results”, you will see your classifications in the lower right side of the screen. In the near future, CMP Classification certificates for display purposes will be accessible as well in the same location.

CMP Classifications are awarded for the following disciplines:

  • Highpower Rifle
  • Service Pistol
  • .22 Rimfire Pistol
  • Long Range
  • Match Pistol
  • Smallbore (Prone and 3P)

The CMP maintains a national database of competitors and scores that are used to establish classifications. Classifications are used as a basis for award groupings during CMP competitions.

Competitors earn classifications through score averages fired in qualifying competitions. As scores improve, so does a competitor’s classification standing. Learn more about each discipline’s classification rules by visiting the “Competition Rulebooks” page on the CMP website at https://thecmp.org/competitions/cmp-competitions-rulebooks/. If you have questions regarding the CMP Classifications, please contact CMP Competitions staff at competitions@thecmp.org.
