Want to be Certified?


NRA Instructor Training Courses consist of two parts. Part one, “Basic Instructor Training (mandatory),” is common to all instructor training courses, and lasts minimum of six hours. This course is taken every 24 months if additional instructor ratings are sought. If you already have a “BIT” withing the last 24 moths it is not required for this course, but attending will reset your “BIT” for furute courses.

Part two is discipline-specific for NRA Basic Pistol Instructor, and lasts and additional 10 hours.

Completion of this course does not guarantee certification as Certified Instructor. The Training Counselor can recommend a candidate for certification with NRA Education and Training, but will need to activate their instructor rating with NRA.

Instructor candidates must attend all training and pass the Instructor Qualification to be recommended. A $25 deposit is required to register and will be deducted from your total payment at class.


Proof of completion for NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting completion is required to attend.

Candidates must understand that the NRA Instructor Training Courses are not designed to teach shooting skills, or to prepare candidates to teach courses other than those of the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program. The NRA Instructor courses take experienced shooters and instruct them to “teach” shooting using the NRA methodology and standards. The NRA certification provides them with credibility for the skills they have acquired throughout their own life experiences.
