NRA Rifle Instructor Certification Course, Citizens Safety Academy, Saturday, 26. September 2020

This 10-hour course teaches the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, promoting, and teaching the NRA’s Basic Rifle Shooting course. The classroom portion will be conducted at Citizens Safety Academy in Murfreesboro. The live-fire portion will be held on a private range. Details on the range location will be sent directly to the registered students. 


Possession of basic firearm safety and shooting skills is a perquisite for certification as an NRA instructor. Every instructor candidate must also have completed the NRA Basic Rifle class before taking the instructor class. For those who have already taken Basic Rifle, please email us your course completion certificate ASAP. If you still need to take Basic Rifle, we are offering that course the same weekend.


This course teaches firearms trainers how to deliver the NRA's Basic Rifle lesson plans. Small classes ensure low student-to-instructor ratios for lots of individualized attention. During several mock teaching lessons called "teach-backs," instructor candidates will practice teaching assigned lessons in front of the group, and we'll offer constructive feedback. Through the teach-backs, instructor candidates will demonstrate organizational skills, public speaking skills, and teaching skills via active participation, including leading live-fire exercises on the range. Course modules include the following:

Teaching rifle knowledge and nomenclature

Teaching safe gun handling

Teaching about rifle ammunition

Teaching the fundamentals of rifle shooting

Basic rifle instructional method

Managing a line of basic rifle shooters on the range

Scoring targets

Teaching how to select and maintain rifles

Conducting course examinations with basic rifle students

and much more!

Instructor candidates also must successfully complete the shooting qualification and the written exam. Each instructor candidate will receive the NRA Trainer’s Guide, NRA Rifle Shooting Instructor Candidate Packet, and NRA Basic Rifle Shooting course student packet.

Note on BIT: 

All NRA Instructor courses consist of two parts: Basic Instructor Training (BIT), and discipline-specific instructor training (in this case, rifle). Completing BIT is a requirement of all instructor candidates who haven't completed BIT within the last two years. This course will include BIT. Instructor candidates that have already satisfied the BIT requirement must submit proof. If you have any questions regarding BIT please email us at email

For more information on what to expect, please visit our website and locate this course listing on our calendar. We look forward to trainign with you.
