This process must be completed within 30 days after the course report is submitted. They will not be able to perform in the capacity as an NRA Trainer until they finish this process. Training Counselors should inform potential instructor candidates that they must have a few things before they attend your course:

          1. An NRA number or existing NRA Instructor number.NOTE: Candidates may attend the course without an NRA number. However,non-members who are not yet instructors will have to wait for their non-memberinstructor number to be assigned and sent to them by email. This will happen AFTER they have been processed by NRA Training Department as long as the instructor course report is completed correctly. They should not contact NRAT raining Department for it. Once non-members receive their NRA non-member number they can register and complete processing. IF THEY JOIN DURING THE COURSE, they will also have to wait. Remember, membership before the course is most expedient!
