Since 1871, a major objective of the National Rifle Association has been to provide training in the safe and proper use of firearms. Today, that objective is being fulfilled through the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program. There are ten different basic courses in this program being taught throughout the nation by NRA Certified Instructors and Chief Range Safety Officers. Instructors provide an invaluable service in their respective communities by training close to one million individuals annually. As firearm and shooting activities expand, so too grows the need for these courses. You can be the vital element in meeting this need by becoming an NRA Certified Instructor and conducting NRA Basic Firearm Training Courses. 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.
The NRA is looking for instructors who enjoy working with people, want to share their firearms knowledge and skills with others, and are willing to make a commitment to teach NRA Basic Training Courses in their communities at least once a year.
