Course Times: 20hrs
Course Designer: USCCA / David S Jenkins, USCCA Training Counselor

Are YOU ready to become a USCCA Certified Instructor? If you are an instructor for the NRA, this can help augment your current certifications. If you are a shooter with a verifiable training history, this may be for you as well!

Please note: This course is NOT designed to make you a better shooter, that’s what a ‘shooting development’ course does. This course is one that will certify you to instruct others in the defensive skills needed to reliable, responsibly, and effectively carry concealed AND skills that will give your students an edge over a violent attacker.

Join the ranks of the professional instructor and you can help teach people to become responsibly armed gun owners. Education is the key to dispelling the myths and untruths that we all face. As a certified instructor, you will have the knowledge and ability to safely teach gun owners about shooting, safe ownership, and safe (and legal) use of a firearm for self defense.

The USCCA Instructor Certification course is approximately one day online and two days in the classroom and includes hands-on breakout sessions and a live-fire exercise. Ownership of the Instructor Toolkit is required. You will also cover the important skills needed to setting up and running your classroom and the range.

Subjects Covered:
Michael Martin, Chief Instructor and author of Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, will review student materials provided in the Instructor Toolkit, identify important elements within the USCCA curriculum and present tips to maximize the use of multimedia materials. Students will learn common instructor mistakes and how to avoid them, and how to use PowerPoint to integrate the USCCA curriculum into their lessons. The course will also touch upon proper business and financial management.
