NRA Rifle and Shotgun Instructor Training Sponsored by Venture Crew 71

Unfortunately, the NRA Rifle and Shotgun Instructors Courses are cancelled.  We did not have the required four candidates sign up for either course so we cannot hold the courses.  

Venture Crew 71 is offering NRA Shotgun and Rifle Instructor training courses on 26 to 28 April and 3 to 5 May 2019 respectively.  Completion of the NRA Basic Shotgun and/or Rifle Shooting courses respectively are required for these Instructor courses.  This Instructor training is targeted for Scouters who are experienced firearm shooters and who are willing to help support Tecumseh Council Shooting Sports Activities.  NRA Certified Range Safety Officers (RSO) and Instructors are required to hold any BSA events involving firearms. 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 also required to attend BSA National Camping School for Shooting Sports Director Certification. 

This training requires NRA Basic Instructor Training (BIT) within two years prior to taking any NRA Instructor Course and a prequalification exercise that includes shooting.  BIT is offered on Friday evenings before the each course as needed for an additional $25 and the prequalification exercise is accomplished during the courses.  The Shotgun Instructor and an associated BIT classroom courses will be held Friday evening and Saturday 26, 27 April 2019 at the Aley United Methodist Church on Kemp Rd. in Beavercreek, the Rifle Instructor and an associated BIT classroom courses will be held Friday evening and Saturday on 3, 4 May 2019 at the Camp Birch Training Lodge, and all range training is on Sunday afternoons at the Camp Birch Ranges.

The cost of the Instructor Courses is $100 for NRA Rifle Instructor and $130 for NRA Shotgun Instructor.  An additional $25 per Instructor Course will be charged anyone not associated with BSA, a $10 discount will be given to anyone taking both Instructors Courses, and a $10 discount per Instructor Course will be given to credentialed folks that have previously helped with 2 shooting events in Tecumseh Council.  All NRA Instructor training will be done by NRA Certified Training Counselors.  All necessary materials, firearms, ammunition, and targets for this training are included in the cost,

A minimum of 4 students will be required in each Instructor course to hold this training and a maximum of 15 students each will be accepted for each course on a first come first served basis.  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 $30 to $50 on-line to the NRA.  NRA Certifications last forever as long as NRA renewal fees of $30 to $50 are paid every two years.  You don’t have to be an NRA member to be an NRA 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.
