If you are an experienced shooter, interested in helping teach new shooters, you might want to consider becoming an NRA certified instructor.

NRA Certified instructors are needed in a wide variety of areas, including:

If you're like most shooters, you are already taking people to the range for their first shooting session. Are you up to date on the latest shooting techniques? Do you have liability insurance to cover you while you're teaching a new shooter? If you get certified as an NRA instructor, you will be up-to-date on the latest instructional and shooting techniques. Also, as an NRA certified instructor, you are eligible for special instructor insurance programs through the NRA.

The Washington State Training Network is sponsoring an NRA Instructor Development Course over the weekend of June 22-24, 2002. This three day course will offer you the option of getting certified to teach up to three of the courses listed below:

You don't need to be an NRA member to attend!
