These are two separate qualifications. One does not cover the other. If you would like to do both of them at the same time you can. Sign up for one and you can do the second one on the same day. The cost for both is $150 but only one qualification ammunition is supplied. When you register for your one qualification just mention in the notes that you are there to do both qualifications. The extra payment of $50 can be collected on site.
