    To qualify as an NRA instructor, you must:

    -Possess and demonstrate a solid background in firearm safety and shooting skills acquired through previous firearm training (such as completion of an NRA Basic Firearm Training Course) and/or previous shooting experience.

    -Satisfactorily complete an NRA Instructor Training Course for the area of specialization you wish to teach (e.g., NRA Basic Shotgun Course), and receive the endorsement of the NRA Training Counselor conducting your training.

    -Successfully complete the appropriate NRA instructor examination. Certified—90% or higher. Assistant—85% or higher. Apprentice—85% or higher

    -Submit your application with appropriate certification fee. Membership in the National Rifle Association is strongly recommended.

    See the NRA website for details.

    I highly recommend you also consider becoming an ATA/NRA certified trap coach. Check the ATA site for scheduled schools, or contact Edie Fleeman for details.
