Training Counselors are experienced NRA Certified Instructors who are appointed by the NRA Training Department to train new instructors. In short, Training Counselors train the trainers.

Hosted by New Jersey-based firearms training company Gun For Hire, 19 new Training Counselors were appointed from six different states, spanning from Ohio to Rhode Island.

"The Workshop staff are proud and honored to have been part of the development of this part of the next generation of NRA Training Counselors," said Hoback. "All 19 of the newly appointed Training Counselors demonstrate they have the Knowledge, Skills and attitude to both develop and mentor new Instructors to ensure the tradition of National standard safe firearm training is upheld in the future."
