NRA Basic Pistol Instructor Certification Course (Memphis)
January 18, 2020 @ 8:00 am - January 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm$350.00
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 basic 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 this instructor certification course, candidates will be required to provide proof that they have completed the NRA Basic Pistol course as a student. If you haven’t completed Basic Pistol, it will be offered at Top Gun in the weeks before the instructor course. Please contact us or contact Top Gun for more information on the Basic Pistol prerequisite.
You’ll need a quality handgun and approximately 100 rounds of ammunition. The round-count is an estimation, as we’ll need roughly 20 rounds for the range teach-backs (where instructor candidates role-play as students) and another 20 rounds for each attempt at the instructor qualification course of fire. Candidates who need to shoot the course multiple times will need more ammo, so we advise everyone to bring about 100 rounds just to be safe. You’ll also need eye and ear protection.
You will NOT need a holster for this class. All shooting is done from a table, not from the holster.
