NRA Certified Personal Protection In the Home Instructor



Confrontations with violent criminals inside the home are rare, but they can happen. Responding to a home invasion requires confidence to respond appropriately, knowledge of the relevant laws, and excellent pistol handling skills. This course gives you the skills necessary to teach students how to react to an incident like this and respond in a way that minimizes the danger to their family and stops the threat.
