NRA Basic Instructor Course

The goal of this course is to develop NRA certified instructors who possess the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to conduct the NRA Basic Firearms Training Courses. This course covers How to introduce a speaker, the role of the instructor and the NRA Basic Firearms Training Program, using a training team, training materials and training aids, organizing your course and preparing to teach.   The course talks about how different people learn and what motivates them to learn.

Basic Range Safety Officer

This is a course designed to prepare experienced shooters to the basic duties of a Range Safety Officer (RSO). RSOs ensure that the users of a range follow range regulations in order to reduce property damage and personal injury. RSOs often have responsibilities to take action when circumstances require it. The RSO is the range's official on the firing line to ensure safety and to help shooters.

Many ranges seek out volunteer Range Safety Officers and the NRA developed this course to help ranges train those RSOs.

Becoming a Range Safety Officer is akin to becoming a NRA Certified Instructor, with much harder testing and the maintaining of a certification card with the NRA. A new RSO will need to pay $25 for processing of their card, and $5 annually to maintain the certification. RSOs are neither certified instructors or coaches.

Although the course can be completed as quickly as nine hours, it often will take longer depending on the class size and the facilities at the range. For example, a large number of indoor and outdoor ranges of different types cannot be toured quickly.

Students will receive a student packet featuring a RSO handbook. This handbook is not available separately.
