Become an NRA Instructor or Chief Range Safety Officer

Since 1871, a major objective of the National Rifle Association has been
to provide education and training in the safe and proper use of
firearms. Knowing how to shoot is an important requirement for NRA
instructors, but you will also need to know how to teach others to
shoot. NRA Instructor Training Courses help you develop the
additional knowledge, skills and techniques needed to organize and
teach courses in the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program.

Instructor training courses are conducted by NRA Training
Counselors. Training Counselors are active and experienced
instructors who have been certified by NRA to train experienced
shooters to teach others to shoot.

To qualify as an NRA Instructor:

Candidates must possess and demonstrate a solid background in
firearm safety and shooting skills acquired through previous firearm
training and/or previous shooting experience. Instructor candidates
must be intimately familiar with each action type in the discipline they
wish to be certified.

Candidates will be required to demonstrate solid and safe firearms
handling skills required to be successful during an instructor training
course by completing pre-course questionnaires and qualification
exercises administered by the NRA Appointed Training Counselor.

Candidates must satisfactorily complete an NRA Instructor Training
Course in the discipline they wish to teach (e.g., NRA Basic Pistol
Course), and receive the endorsement of the NRA Training Counselor
conducting that training.

NRA Instructor courses are discipline specific. During the course,
candidates will learn NRA policies and procedures, basic public
speaking skills, training methodology, use of a training team and
training aids, organizing a course, building a budget, and finally
preparing to teach. In addition, candidates will be provided the
appropriate lesson plans and basic course student packets.
Role-playing is a major part of an instructor course; therefore, the
minimum class size should be at least four candidates, with 10-12
candidates being ideal. Candidates take turns working in teams,
actually conducting portions of the course to other candidates who
portray basic students.

Training Counselors will evaluate candidates' performance based on
their ability to handle the firearms with confidence, use of appropriate
training aids, following the lesson plans and meeting all learning
objectives, while utilizing the teaching philosophies expected of NRA
Certified Instructors. Candidates can also expect to learn the NRA
discipline specific instructional methods and evaluating and improving
the performance of beginning shooters.

Candidates will be provided with the NRA Trainer's Guide, appropriate
Lesson Plans and Outlines, Basic Course Student handbooks,
certificates, basic student examinations, Winchester/NRA
Marksmanship Qualification Program booklet, Basic Firearm Training
Programs Brochure, Gun Safety Rules brochure, NRA Trainer's
Examination and NRA discipline specific instructor examination
(minimum passing grade is 90%).

Instructor ratings are available to conduct the following NRA courses:

Basic Pistol Shooting
Personal Protection in the Home
Personal Protection Outside the Home
Basic Rifle Shooting
Basic Shotgun Shooting
Basic Muzzleloading Pistol
Basic Muzzleloading Rifle
Basic Muzzleloading Shotgun
Home Firearm Safety
Metallic Cartridge Reloading
Shotgun Shell Reloading
Range Safety Officer

NRA Certified Instructors provide an invaluable service in their
communities by training hundreds of thousands of individuals
annually. As more Americans choose to exercise their right to own a
firearm, so too grows the need for these courses.

You can be the vital element in meeting this need by becoming an NRA
Certified Instructor and conducting NRA Basic Firearm Training
Courses.

As an instructor, you can experience the personal satisfaction of
teaching others the basics - the knowledge, skills and attitude that will
lead to a lifetime of safe, enjoyable and successful involvement in
firearm and shooting activities.

NRA Certified Instructors are expected to:

Conduct NRA Basic Courses in accordance with policies and
procedures outlined by NRA
Uphold the quality and integrity of national firearm safety and training
standards established by NRA
Promote firearm safety and the shooting sports
Report training data to NRA

classes gives you all the basics and materials but not the
experience needed to feel comfortable on your own.

commitment with Mine. Your training does not end the day
