NRA Rifle and Shotgun Instructor Training by Venture Crew 71

Venture Crew 71 is offering combined NRA Rifle and Shotgun Instructor training on April 29, 30, and 1 May 2016 at Camp Birch.  This training is targeted for Scouters who are experienced firearm shooters and who are willing to help support Tecumseh Council Shooting Sports Activities.  The training, when passed successfully, will lead to recommendation to the NRA for certification as NRA Instructors.  Certification as both NRA Rifle and Shotgun Instructors is now required for acceptance to BSA National Camping School for Shooting Sports Director Certification.  This training includes NRA Basic Instructor Training (BIT) on Friday evening, NRA Basic and Instructor Courses classroom training on Saturday, and NRA Basic and Instructor range training on Sunday.  This training will be done by NRA Certified Training Counselors.  All necessary materials, ammunition, and targets for this training are included in the cost,

The cost for this combined training is $165 for Scouters and $205 for those not associated with Scouting.  A minimum of 10 students will be required to hold this training and a maximum of 20 students will be accepted first come first served.  Upon successful completion of this training, candidates will be recommended for certification to the NRA and after NRA approval will have to pay additional certification fees of up to $50 on-line to the NRA.  NRA Certifications last forever as long as NRA renewal fees of up to$30 are paid every two years.  You don’t have to be an NRA member to be an instructor, but the NRA fees are lower for NRA members.  NRA Certification and/or Renewal fees are not included in the cost of this training.

To register contact Ray Blowers at Phone: (937) 429-2191 or at E-mail [Click for member's page] before the deadline of 8 April 2016.  A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to register due to problems with students registering then not showing up.  Remaining fees will be collected at the door.  The deposit can be paid by check and mailed to: Ray Blowers at 1725 Pierce Dr., Beavercreek, Oh 45432.  Class or student cancellations prior to 8 April 2016 will be refunded.

For anyone not needing both instructor certifications the costs will be:

Rifle Instructor Only: $110 for Scouters and $150 for non-scouters

Shotgun Instructor Only: $140 for Scouters and $180 for non-scouters

Those seeking only one instructor certification will have to participate in all the combined classroom sessions and the range sessions for the instructor discipline they want.

Those who can document that they have taken BIT within two years may deduct $8.50 and not have to repeat  BIT.
