Effective April 4, NRA Certified Instructors will have greater versatility and improved methods for training each student, based on their needs.

By combining time-tested curriculum with modern techniques, the NRA continues to create classes that Instructors want to teach—and their students want to take.

It’s well-known that the National Rifle Association sets the standard for firearms education and training in the United States. To preserve this standard, the Education and Training Division is introducing an improved Basics of Pistol Shooting Program, engineered to meet the demands of NRA Certified Instructors and students alike.

The improved Basics of Pistol Shooting Program places NRA Certified Instructors in the driver’s seat. Based on valuable feedback from our corps of dedicated instructors and training counselors nationwide, the NRA has introduced an Instructor Led Training (ILT) edition of the program, and will continue to offer the existing Blended Learning version.

These updates, which become effective on April 4, 2017, give NRA Instructors the ability to administer both versions of the course in their entirety, as well as the freedom to choose the method best suited for each student based on their needs. This instructor-focused approach puts Certified Instructors at the forefront of the training experience for students, while maintaining the ease of access, use and learning for those seeking the benefits of our proven training courses.

NRA Instructors will evaluate each student and determine their individual aptitude and ability. They are the best representation of the NRA to our members, and their years of expertise in firearms training is one of our most valuable assets. By combining time-tested curriculum with modern techniques, the NRA is once again taking the lead—developing courses that Instructors want to teach—and that their students want to take.

The existing Blended Learning Basics of Pistol Shooting course now includes the option for Instructors to teach a single action type, and new targets have been developed that require less ink for printing. Additionally, the online registration process has been streamlined.
