NRA Certified Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor Training Requirements

Here is what you need to know to become an NRA Certified Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor

NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor



Not all self-defense situations happen inside the home. Basic personal protection skills are good to know, but a violent confrontation in a street or an alley is a very different animal compared to defending yourself inside your house. Knowing how to find and use cover is important and presenting a pistol from concealment can be challenging. Learn how to empower students with the solutions to these challenges by taking the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor Course with GTBR.

NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor Course with GTBR


What You Will Learn


This course teaches you not only skills but also how to confidently and effectively teach those skills to a student. The topics covered include:
Presenting a Pistol from Concealment
Reholstering the Pistol
Positioning and Movement
Use of Cover
Special Shooting Techniques

The Prerequisites


This is a more advanced course, so you must already be an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor and NRA Certified Personal Protection In the Home Instructor. If you have not completed the NRA Basic Instructor Training within the last two years, that will also be required for this course. Finally, you also must have completed the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home student course with a score of 90% or better, which we usually teach in conjunction with the instructor course.

In order to undertake the NRA Certified Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor course at GTBR, you need to know the basics of firearm safety and have a measure of proficiency in shooting skills. There is a link below to the pre-course assessment exercises to ensure you have a suitable background in firearms.

What to Expect


This is a 2-day course that includes classroom exercises as well as dry-fire and live-fire time at the range. The basics of self-defense were covered in the prerequisites, so expect to practice advanced pistol handling and self-defense skills such as one-handed shooting while properly using cover. You will also practice teaching these skills to other students.

Merely learning the skills is not the objective of the class. You will have to demonstrate your ability to perform each skill in order to progress and finish the course. The course ends with a qualification exam testing the material learned.

You will receive an NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor Candidate Packet and a signed certificate allowing you to teach the NRA Basic Personal Protection Outside the Home student course.

How You Benefit


Completing the NRA Certified Personal Protection Outside the Home course will equip you with the skills necessary to teach students how to safely use firearms to defend themselves and their families, no matter where they are. It also includes training material to help you teach your own class.

The best way to learn is to teach, so taking this course will improve the skills you learned in the student course. It will also make you more in demand as a firearms instructor. Holding multiple NRA certificates and being able to teach effectively will make you more appealing to prospective students.

    • Can you teach me to be a good NRA trainer?
      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.
