You will also be categorized by your relative skill level, or classification, from Novice to Master. Your classification is determined by shooting a “classifier”, which is a standardized set of drills which ranks your shooting proficiency based on a cumulative time scale. However, you are not required to have a classification to shoot in an IDPA match.
