NRA Instructor Training Series

Event Details

No Registration Needed

Become a part of the team that helps deliver shooting sports to our Scouts!  

A current NRA instructor who is on the Council Approved Shooting Sports Instriuctor list and current NRA Range Safety Officers (RSO)s are required for a unit to open a shooting sports range at a council property.   For more details visit: https://tampabayscouting.org/camps/camp-facilities-usage.  

All participants must agree to assist the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council, or their home council, by staffing at least 2 Council or District shooting sports events per year for the next 2 years.   

Knowing how to shoot is a requirement for NRA instructors, but you will also need to know how to teach others to shoot. NRA Instructor Training Courses help you develop the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to organize and teach others.
