Our NRA Pistol Instructor Training course is designed to develop NRA Certified Instructors who possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to conduct the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course. The Pistol Instructor Training begins with our NRA Basic Instructor Training class, then the Basics of Pistol Shooting Student Course, and then the Pistol Instructor Training.  These 3 classes together form the required course for NRA Pistol Instructor certification. (You are not considered an NRA Certified Instructor until the NRA Training Department processes your application and issues your instructor credentials.)  This package includes the Basic Instructor Training (BIT), the Basics of Pistol Shooting Student Course and the Pistol Instructor Training so no other courses will be required to obtain your NRA Pistol Instructor Credentials after passing this course. The NRA is now requiring instructor candidates to complete the NRA Online Blended Learning couse prior to class so you will be familiar with the material some of your students will be getting before coming to you.  If you want a coupon for the online course, please include it with your checkout below.  (This will save you approximately $35 compared to buying it online directly.)

NRA Pistol Instructor certification is a requirement for becoming a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) Instructor in Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Missouri, and many other states. Remember that the individual states decide all matters relating to their CHP programs including whether, when, and to whom they issue Instructor certificates. You must apply directly to your state and meet their requirements for certification as a CHP instructor.

The Training Counselor (Justin Grusing) for this course has been a Nebraska Concealed Carry instructor for several years so if you are taking this class to prepare for becoming a concealed carry instructor you will be able to get many of your questions answered to make the journey much smoother.

This is a full weekend which includes the Basic Instructor Training and the Basic Pistol student course as well as the prequalification shooting drills and the actual instructor course.  Your lunches and snacks will be included.  We also have on-site accomodations for those traveling from out of town at no additional charge.

You will just need to bring your handgun and approximately 300 rounds of ammo so you can demonstrate your ability to shoot to the standards required to be an NRA instructor.  You will be required to shoot 16 out of 20 rounds in a 6" groups on an 8" from 15 yards.  You will be given two chances every day if you do not accomplish this the first time.  We will have the range open on Friday evening for those who would like to get an extra two chances before class begins.

You can pay for the class with credit card or debit card below or if you are going to pay by check please select the "Pay Instructor Directly" option.  Your spot will not be reserved until the check is received.

NOTICE: Due to a recent change in the NRA Pistol Training course, it is now required that you complete the online training prior to class.  You can do this at and it will cost $60 paid directly to the NRA or you can pay for a control code below for $25 and I will send you a code to enroll in the course online.  You will be assigned a PIN upon completion of the online course so bring that with you.  (It will be printed on the certificate of completion)

The $300 $275 includes the BIT, the Phase 2 of the student course, and the Pistol Instructor training.  Classes start at 8:00 am and we will be in Classroom Bravo at the Nebraska Shooters Training Academy at 3200 Gage Rd Firth, NE 68358.
