NRA Basic Pistol

This course is available in two formats.  The first format is Instructor Led only Training (ILT) and the second format is Blended.

The Blended format is conducted in two parts.

Part 1 is online, self-paced training consisting of 11 lessons and concludes with an exam. It takes about 8 hours to complete the online training.  Students can complete the training over several days as their personal schedule permits though once enrolled the course must be completed in 90 days.

Your instructor can send you a Course Control Code (CCC) to register for the online trading once you register for the Blended class.

Students must complete part 1, before they are permitted to attend part 2.  Part 2 is the instructor-led training portion of the course.  During part 2, NRA Certified Instructors validate comprehension and application of gun safety rules, range protocol, proper handling, loading and unloading procedures, application of pistol shooting fundamentals and stable shooting positions.  Students will live fire and shoot a final qualification.

Part 2 is conducted the third Sunday of each month (subject to demand) starting at 8:30 AM and ends by 6 PM.

The ILT format is a two-day instructor led course that includes all of the material students would have covered in both the online and in person parts of the Blended class.  The ILT class is conducted on the second weekend of each month.  Class is begins at 9 AM on Saturday and concludes at 5 PM on Saturday.

The cost for either format is $75 per student and is non-refundable.  The course fee includes use of firearms, ammunition, eye and ear protection.

Range Safety Officer / Chief Range Safety Officer Certification Courses

We periodically offer the NRA Range Safety Officer class to certify range and match personnel on the safe supervision of shooting range operations.

 

Range Safety Officer (RSO) Certification Course

Prerequisite – Candidates must be 21 years old AND an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer prior to attending the Chief Range Safety Officer Training.

NOTE: Chief Range Safety Officers, in addition to all the rights and responsibilities of Range Safety Officers, are also qualified and certified to TEACH other candidates to become NRA Certified Range Safety Officers. As such, this requires the CRSO candidate to become an NRA Certified Instructor and requires additional training.
CRSO candidates who are currently-certified NRA Instructors are not required to attend Part One: Basic Instructor Training, but may be required to re-take the Trainer’s Exam if they have not taken it in the previous 12 months.
