This week the NRA officially reached 80,000 NRA Certified Instructors. In fact, they went a little over. There are now 80,280 NRA Certified Instructors in the Education & Training Division's database.

Since 1871, a major objective of the National Rifle Association has been to provide education and training in the safe and proper use of firearms. Knowing how to shoot is an important requirement for NRA instructors, but you will also need to know how to teach others to shoot. NRA Instructor Training Courses help you develop the additional knowledge, skills and techniques needed to organize and teach courses in the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program.

Instructor training courses are conducted by NRA Training Counselors. Training Counselors are active and experienced instructors who have been appointed by NRA to train experienced shooters to teach others to shoot. NRA Instructor Training courses are posted at, or you may request a list of Training Counselors in your geographic area by contacting the NRA Training Department at 703-267-1430.

NRA Certified Instructors provide an invaluable service in their communities by training hundreds of thousands of individuals annually. As more Americans choose to exercise their right to own a firearm, so too grows the need for these courses.
