NRA Instructor Benefits

Instructor Workshops

As an Instructor, you can experience the personal satisfaction of teaching others the basics — the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will lead to a lifetime of safe, enjoyable and successful involvement in firearm and shooting activities. Instructors provide an invaluable service in their communities by training hundreds of thousands of individuals annually. As firearm and shooting activities expand, and more Americans choose to exercise their right to carry a firearm, so too grows the need for these courses (and the Instructors to teach them).

Pre-qualification Required! (See bottom of page)

All applicants MUST PROVE they have the basic knowledge and experience in the specific field of instruction to take these courses.

BACKGROUND

Since 1871, a major objective of the National Rifle Association [NRA] has been to provide Education & Training in the safe and proper use of firearms.

Today, that objective is being fulfilled through the NRA Basic Firearm Instructor Training Program. There are currently three different disciplines (ratings) currently offered by our NRA Appointed Training Counselors at Semper Fi Firearms.

They are:

NRA Certified Home Firearm Safety Instructor

NRA Range Safety Officer

NRA Certified Pistol Instructor

NRA Personal Protection In The Home

NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home

FULFILLMENT

As an NRA Certified Instructor, you can experience the personal satisfaction of teaching others the basics — the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will lead to a lifetime of safe, enjoyable and successful involvement in firearm and shooting activities.

The NRA is looking for new instructor candidates who enjoy working with people, want to share their firearm knowledge and skills with others, and are willing to make a commitment to teach NRA training courses in their communities.

INSTRUCTOR RATINGS

The categories of instructor ratings for each discipline available are:

NRA Certified Instructor: 21 years of age or older

NRA Assistant Instructor: 18 years of age or older

NRA Apprentice Instructor: 13-17 years of age

QUALIFICATIONS

To qualify as an NRA Certified Instructor, you must:

Candidates must possess and demonstrate a solid background in firearm safety and shooting skills acquired through previous firearm training and/or previous shooting experience. Instructor candidates must be intimately familiar with each action type in the discipline they wish to be certified.

Successfully complete the appropriate NRA Certified Instructor examination. Certified — 90% or higher, Assistant — 85% or higher, and Apprentice — 85% or higher

Candidates will be required to demonstrate solid and safe firearms handling skills required to be successful during an instructor training course by completing pre-course questionnaires and qualification exercises administered by the NRA Appointed Training Counselor.

Candidates must satisfactorily complete an NRA Instructor Training Course in the discipline they wish to teach (e.g. NRA Basic Pistol Course), and receive the endorsement of the NRA Training Counselor conducting that training.

Certified Ratings are available to individuals who wish to be fully qualified to conduct basic courses (21 years of age or older).

Assistant Ratings are available to individuals who wish to assist certified instructors in order to gain the knowledge and experience needed to become a certified instructor.

Apprentice Ratings are available to young people who wish to understudy a certified instructor in preparation for more advanced ratings. The apprentice instructor will be chosen by an NRA Certified Instructor from select individuals. These individuals must be of the emotional maturity necessary to handle such a position. In addition, they must have attended and successfully completed an NRA Basic Firearm Training Course in their chosen area of specialization (13 – 17 years of age).

NRA CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR RESPONSIBILITIES

Conducting NRA Basic Courses in accordance with policies and procedures outlined by NRA

Upholding the quality and integrity of national firearm safety and training standards established by NRA

Promoting firearm safety and the shooting sports

Reporting training data to NRA.

Knowing how to shoot is an important requirement for NRA Certified Instructors, but you will also need to know how to teach others to shoot.

NRA Instructor Training Counselors and courses help you develop the additional knowledge, skills and techniques needed to organize and teach courses in the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program.

Instructor training courses are conducted by our NRA Training Counselors. Training Counselors are active and experienced instructors who have been appointed by NRA to train other (new) instructors.

NRA CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR BENEFITS

Once you receive your certificate (suitable for framing) from NRA, you will receive your identification card. You will also receive a free subscription of the NRA Shooting Education Update, a newsletter published periodically for all NRA Trainers. Program information, training schedules, book reviews, material updates and more are provided. Additionally, the Update provides an open forum for the exchange of information and ideas on firearm safety and marksmanship education.

You become an even more valuable resource for your community. NRA Certified Instructors are leaders who provide a very important service. Because of your dedication to the shooting sports, you are providing a chance for others to enjoy the same benefits of firearm ownership that you have enjoyed in the past.
