Thanks to NRA Training Counselor Program Coordinator Mark Richardson for this report on a recent Training Counselor Workshop in Utah:
The NRA Training Department conducted a successful Training Counselor Development Workshop at the Cabela's store in Lehi, Utah May 12th -14th. 14 Training Counselor Candidates traveled to Utah to participate from all over the country including Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Montana, as well as Utah.
Training Counselors Zeb Graham and Louis Lang come down from Idaho Falls, Idaho to assist NRA Training Counselor Program Coordinator Mark Richardson in teaching the course.
Here's what some of the candidadates had to say about the course:
“It really helped to use the Lesson Plans in corporation with the TC Manual to give a complete lesson. Mark and Zeb had a real drive that was contagious and Lou gave great presentations. WOW!” -Eugene White, Ogden, UT
“This course brought to my attention that my role in the NRA is valuable, appreciated, and a greater responsibility than I treated it previously.” -Tony LaRosa, Idaho Falls, ID
“Completing this course has given me a better understanding of the NRA and the NRA programs. I feel better prepared to train others to become Instructors in the NRA Basic Firearms disciplines.” -Philip Capizzi, Clearfield, UT
“The fellowship of the entire group made me feel like I had joined a great fraternity.” -Buddy Pohl, Morgan Hill, CA
Mark would like to give a special thanks to Shay, Rebecca, Bobbie, and Dennis from the Lehi, Utah Cabela's store for going out of their way to make the group feel welcome.
