A major objective of the National Rifle Association (NRA) 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. The NRA Instructor Training Courses will help you develop the additional knowledge, skills and techniques needed to organize and teach courses in the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program.
The NRA Instructor Training Courses are conducted by NRA Training Counselors. The Training Counselors are active and experienced instructors who have been appointed by NRA to train experienced shooters to teach others to shoot.
NRA Instructor Training courses are posted at http://www.nrainstructors.org/searchcourse.aspx, or you may request a list of Training Counselors in your geographic area by contacting the NRA Training Department at 703-267-1430.
The first 6 hours of the course is the NRA Basic Instructor Training (BIT), utilizing the NRA Trainer’s Guide.
The BIT is followed by discipline-specific training and will be 5-16 additional hours, depending on the discipline.
