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.
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. 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.
Possession of basic firearm safety and shooting skills is a prerequisite for certification as an NRA instructor. Prior to the instructor training, candidates complete the a pre-course questionnaire and demonstrate their firearm background in pre-course assessment exercises. Students will demonstrate organizational & teaching skills via participation in practical exercises during the course, & complete an instructor certification examination & a shooting qualifier at 15 yards. NRA pistol instructors are recognized by Florida as being able to provide the training requirements for Concealed Weapons License Classes. Does not include range fee.
Please note that due to the NRA requirements a minimum of 4 students are required, if four students have not been successfully registered by the week prior to the class, the instructor will issue full refunds and the class will be rescheduled. Deposit/Fee are non-refundable due to training material that needs to be pre-ordered for each student.
