The Prerequisites

On the Day of the Training


Keep in mind that there will be no shooting in this course. You will learn about how to keep firearms safe in the home to avoid negligent incidents and how to teach others how to safely clean and care for firearms in general. You will receive the NRA Instructor Candidate Packet and NRA Trainer’s Guide. You also get a brochure on NRA Gun Safety Rules.

How You Benefit


By completing the NRA Certified Home Firearm Safety Instructor course with GTBR, you will be ready to teach others about safely storing firearms in the home. Storing firearms is not as straightforward as it may seem. You have to explain how improper storage can negatively affect firearms. You will also be able to explain the proper ways to clean the various firearms. Successful completion of this course can be an excellent first step for those who want to complete the NRA Certified Firearms Instructor certification.

Keep in mind, owning a firearm comes with lots of responsibilities. Most firearms are stored more often than they are in use. That’s why learning the skills and techniques of handling, storing, and cleaning firearms are just as important as learning to shoot.

      We can help you become a NRA Trainer. How good you are depends on several factors. How hard are you willing to work at being a good instructor? How willing are you to continue your education as an instructor? Being a good instructor isn't about taking a class, it's about investing you your ability to convey that important information to your student.

      A.D.S.I. states it like this:

      1. I am committed to the safety of my students, and hold that the expected benefit of any training activity must significantly outweigh any known or perceived risk of that activity.
      2. I believe that it is my responsibility to understand not just what I’m teaching, but WHY I’m teaching any technique or concept, or offering specific advice.
      3. I recognize that defensive shooting skills, along with the drills and gear used, are inherently specialized and usually distinct from those of target shooting, competition and hunting endeavors.
      4. I will encourage my students to ask questions about course material, and I will answer them with thorough and objective explanations.
      5. I understand that Integrity and Professionalism are subjective traits and I strive to maintain high levels of both. I am capable of, and willing to, articulate the reasons for the way I conduct my courses and how I interact with students & peers.
      6. I believe that it is valuable to engage my peers in constructive conversation about differences in technique and concept, with the goal of mutual education and evolution.
      7. I believe that the best instructor is an avid student, and I will strive to continually upgrade my own skills and knowledge. As part of this belief, I understand that my own teachings need to be subject to critique and open to evolution.
    • Can I get certified to become an NRA Instructor online?
      We do not certify anyone online to become an instructor of any kind. Few, if any, states allow that kind of training to become certified as a firearms instructor of any sort. Distance learning (online training) has its place in the learning process, but physical skillsets must be witnessed and objectives met in class and on the range.
    • Can I host you for NRA Instructor training?
      Yes we can be hosted for NRA Instructor Training and Development. Please see our Host an Event page for further information.
