NRA Instructor Training Opportunities

UPCOMING COURSES:  Basic Instructor Course will be offered on 16 December 2017.


In order to become an NRA Certified Instructor in any discipline, the NRA requires you to complete their Basic Instructor Training (BIT) course within 24 months of taking the discipline-specific instructor course. Once completed, BIT remains valid for 24 months and you can add other instructor certifications without taking BIT again.

For Rifle Instructor or Shotgun Instructor Certification you must pass a pre-course qualification that demonstrates your proficiency with the fundamentals of safe gun handling and basic marksmanship/shooting skills. You’ll then need to complete the appropriate Instructor Certification course.

For Pistol Instructor Certification, the NRA now requires that you complete the Basics of Pistol Shooting-Instructor Led Training (BOPS-ILT) student course.  Prior to the instructor course you must also pass a pre-course qualification that demonstrates your proficiency with the fundamentals of safe gun handling and basic marksmanship skills. You’ll then need to complete the Pistol Instructor Certification course.
