NRA Basic Pistol Instructor Certification Course
March 30 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 6:00 pm$225.00
This course teaches the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, promoting, and teaching the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting course. Instructor candidates learn to organize and teach the Basic Pistol curriculum and demonstrate mastery through practical exercises, student-teaching, and a written exam.
This is a two-day course to certify students as NRA certified pistol instructors.
Day one is NRA Basic Instructor Training (BIT), utilizing the NRA Trainer’s Guide. During this part, 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 preparing to teach. Day one also includes the pre-course shooting qualification.
Day two is Pistol Instructor training. During this portion, candidates will be provided with the Basic Pistol lesson plans and student packets. Role playing is a major part of an instructor course. Candidates take turns working in teams to teach portions of the course to other candidates who role-play as students.
Before attending the instructor course, candidates will be required to provide proof that they have completed the NRA Basic Pistol course. If you haven’t completed this course, it will be offered the day before the instructor course.
