NRA Instructor

Just to share what I consider some good news. I have finished my courses and have done the qualification shooting and I am now a certified NRA instructor

No Zoomy I did not say I am certifiable

Hey, congratulations ! I'm 10 years from retirement and have already been thinking about part-time income. What does it entail to get the certification and what do you plan on using it for?

You have to start out by doing the "Basic Pistol Class" Phase 1 is online with NRA and it is about 7 hours. Then a test of 50 questions and you must score at least 90%.

Then you do Phase II of the "Basic Pistol" with an instructor which is a class of about 8 hours and includes range time and qualifying on a shooting range.

Once you have done that you need to take the "Instructors Class" from an "Certified NRA Counselor" (They are one step above an instructor) and that is at least 16 hours of class and range time. You must qualify shooting a 6" group at 45 feet.

All told all of that cost me around $500.00

All of that done, you are a certified instructor.
