Are you thinking about starting your own firearms training business? Have your friends asked you to teach them how to use their guns? Do you know how to teach? What to teach? When to teach and when not too?

These are just six (6) important reasons to consider opening a firearms safety business.

First, you like it (that's the important part); secondly, you want everyone to be

safe and responsible;

third, you believe everyone

has the right

to defend themselves anytime, anywhere there is a threat to friends and family; the rest can be taught.
Start Your Own Texas Firearms Training Business!

As a Texas Certified NRA Instructor

you have the opportunity to train others in the safe handing of firearms. You are recognized as a certified trainer from a national organization that is never, ever, questioned - that's a
HUGE
acknowledgment! We encourage you to teach others how to be safe and how to use their firearms responsibly. If you are planning to become a Texas Licensed to Carry Instructor, you must be certified by a Nationally recognized organization -

the NRA is the only Nationally Recognized Organization in existence today

! Texas does honor the
USCCA pistol instructor
rating but
USCCA pistol instructors are not Nationally recognized
- USCCA instructors are limited to where they can teach firearm courses - NRA Instructors can teach anywhere in the United States and are the most respected instructors in the industry.

To become  a

Certified Texas Licensed to Carry Permit Instructor

you must attend the state of Texas LTC instructor course in Florence, Texas. The course is 5 days long, easy to pass, and includes range shooting. Before you attend this class, you must have a pistol certification from a Nationally recognized organization. The

Texas NRA instructor

has the primary goal of teaching others to use their firearms safely while the

Texas Concealed Carry Permit  Instructor's

primary goal is to teach others how to

carry in a concealed manner

that is not threatening to the general public.

National Rifle Association
Basic Instructor Training (BIT) Course

Texas NRA Basic Instructor Training
$ 149.95

Prerequisites:  NONE

(sort of...)



The

NRA Basic Instructor Training Course (BIT for short)

teaches the basic

knowledge, skills, and attitude

necessary to teach any of the NRA's disciplines - the BIT is not a discipline in itself but rather a

teaching methodology

that is applied to any skill or discipline you want to teach, e.g.: Pistol, Rifle, Personal Protection. This is the core class that teaches how to understand lesson plans, how to teach a discipline, and how to ensure 100% consistency across the board when teaching a NRA course.

The NRA  instructor methodology is valid for a two (2) year period.

In other words, if you have attended a BIT within two (2) years of learning a new discipline, you are considered to be a valid instructor who is up-to-date with the NRA's methodology for teaching. If your last BIT class is over two (2) years old, you

must

attend a current BIT to teach a new discipline.

The BIT is offered with all disciplines but, because it is a 8+ hour course, it cannot be taught on the same day as the discipline you are attempting to achieve. Typically, the BIT is offered on "Day 1" of a course and then the discipline course is taught on "Day 2".  If you are "current" on your BIT instruction you can "skip" day one (1) and simply attend the discipline course on "Day 2". Therefore, all classes and fees listed below assume you have a current BIT; if you do not, or if you need to update your BIT, you will need to signup for this class before attending a new discipline course. The BIT classes listed in the drop-down menu are associated with their proper disciplines and BIT classes as required.

This is very important - if you do not have a current NRA BIT Certification, the NRA

will not

recognize the discipline course you have signed up to attend. You

must

bring your NRA Instructor Certification Card to Class so we may validate you are holding a current BIT as a prerequisite. If you cannot provide current credentials we will have no option other than to ask you to retake the BIT BEFORE attending the class!



If you have any questions regarding your BIT certification status, we encourage you to contact us prior to paying for any new classes. We cannot stress enough if you are not current on your BIT the NRA will not provide certification.
