The NRA Shotgun Instructor Training class is designed to develop NRA Certified Instructors who possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to conduct the NRA Basic Shotgun Shooting Course. NRA Shotgun Instructor Training begins with the NRA Basic Instructor Training class, which must be completed first. Both classes together form the required course for NRA Shotgun Instructor certification. (You are not considered an NRA Certified Instructor until the NRA Training Department processes your application and issues your instructor credentials.) This is an 11 hour course designed to teach the fundamentals of shotgun shooting, both hunting and skeet/trap for shotgun. This NRA Shotgun Instructor Training class proceeds through eight lessons that teach you how to conduct the NRA Basic Shotgun Shooting course step by step using the NRA Basic Shotgun Shooting Course Outline and Lesson Plans, and how to teach shotgun shooting on a basic level. NRA Shotgun Instructor Training concludes with the Shotgun Instructor Examination and other preliminaries to certification by the NRA.

Here are the eight lessons in an NRA Shotgun Instructor Training class:

  • VI. Introduction to "NRA Basic Shotgun Shooting Course Outline and Lesson Plans"

Certifications are issued by the NRA Training Dept. There are certification and processing fees that are paid directly to NRA. The fees are $30 if you are an NRA member. The fees are $50 if you are not a NRA member. That is for a 2 year certification. This price doesn't include BIT.

Please remember NRA Instructor courses are performance based courses. Students must possess the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for this level of training. You do not pay and automatically pass instructor training. You pass to have the opportunity to pass.
