NRA Basic Instructor Training

The NRA Basic Instructor Training opens with an exercise on “How to Introduce a Speaker” designed as an icebreaker. You’re paired with another Instructor Candidate, spend a few minutes exchanging information, and then introduce each other to the class. Immediately you start learning how to talk on your feet while we teach you how to offer useful praise and constructive suggestions. You’re teaching. We help you conquer shyness and develop a communications bridge with a group of people who depend on you for positive instruction. Our classes establish an atmosphere in which your fellow students assist us in helping you succeed. Step by step we guide you through five key lessons that help you learn essential methods of conducting a formal NRA class in the use of firearms. NRA Basic Instructor Training concludes with “Preparing to Teach” and the trainer’s examination. At that point you should be ready for whichever discipline-specific instructor training class comes next for you: Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, or Personal Protection, depending on your qualifications and enrollment. To make most efficient use of the day on which we hold this six hour class, we continue on to common elements of the discipline-specific courses (NRA Basic Pistol Instructor, NRA Basic Rifle Instructor, NRA Basic Shotgun Instructor, and NRA Personal Protection Instructor) for students who have registered in advance to go beyond NRA Basic Instructor Training into one or more NRA discipline-specific class. Or you can stop with the Basic Instructor Training class. (You are not considered an NRA Certified Instructor until you complete the discipline-specific class and the NRA Training Department processes your application and issues instructor credentials.)

“He engages the class well and keeps everyone involved.”

Hi Anthony, Charlie & Jimmy Last night I attended the First Steps class with Jimmy. Even though this class is geared for beginning shooters and I have been a gun owner since 1983, the class was very informative and I learned a lot. Jimmy has a great teaching style that made learning a serious topic fun and easy to understand. He engages the class well and keeps everyone involved. During the live fire session Paul worked with me and helped me overcome some bad habits I’ve developed over the years and he also has a nice approach to teaching firearms safety and handling. I also observed both Paul and Jimmy taking first-time shooters from nervous first trigger pulls to consistent groupings. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Last week I also took the UT & FL non-resident CCW courses with Charlie at Cherry Ridge. He also has a great presentation style and managed to get a room full of applicants trained and processed promptly. Your Woodland Park facility is also first class. It’s clean and welcoming. Most indoor ranges I’ve been to are dark and not user-friendly. GFH stands head and shoulders above the competition. Thanks again for offering this opportunity to the public to increase firearms safety and skills. I look forward to another class soon. – Kevin K. GFH Member.

Instructor Bios:

All of our high-level courses are taught by experienced professionals with the credentials to prove it. They are all trained and certified by the N.J. Police Training Commission, N.J. Department of Criminal Justice, and possess Federal Law Enforcement Instructor Certifications. They are experts in N.J. Use of Force Policies, and are always updating the course material with the latest use of force guidelines and case law. At Gun For Hire, this is not a “hobby”, but a full-time, legitimate vocation. Any “instructor” can teach you something, but only a select few can teach you the “why” or the “root of law” to justify your actions. If you were to use your newly acquired skills and were required to justify your actions, Gun For Hire instructors are ready, willing, and able to testify in your defense, as long as you had followed the training and procedures we provided. It does you, and your loved ones, no good if you survive the fight but have spend the next thirty years in prison because of the wrong advice you were given by a part-time amateur “instructor”.
