NRA CCW Instructor  NEW! 

Level 1 Firearms Training courses exceed national firearms education standards.  Our unique Hell Week Training Event program gives students the opportunity to take courses back-to-back so you can get more out of your education in less time.  Level 1 makes advanced certification more accessible by offering training events across the country.  The Hell Week Instructor Package bundles select certification courses that better prepare instructors to teach pistol and concealed carry concepts.  Level 1 encourages student success through mentorship and business building opportunities beyond the classroom.  This has made Level 1 a leader in firearms instructor certification nationwide. DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS!

NRA Basic Instructor Training BIT Course is an 8+ hour objective based prerequisite class required before taking instructor level courses.  BIT is not a certification course, but rather a class on teaching methodology that is applied to any NRA skill or discipline you  become certified to teach: Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Personal Protection in the Home, Personal Protection Outside the Home, Home Firearm Safety, Range Safety, CCW, and Defensive Pistol..  This is the core class that goes over how to understand and translate lesson plans, proven teaching techniques, and how to meet NRA education standards to ensure consistency in training.

 

The NRA BIT course is valid for a two (2) year period.  If you have attended a BIT within the last two (2) years, you are considered to be a active instructor who is up-to-date with the NRA's training principles and may take additional NRA Instructor disciplines.  If your last BIT course is over two (2) years old, you must attend a current BIT course prior to taking a new instructor discipline. 

 

IMPORTANT - You must provide your NRA BIT Completion Card or other proof of BIT before taking any instructor level course..  If you cannot provide current credentials you will be required to take/retake the BIT course. There are NO EXCEPTIONS as per NRA policy.  The NRA will not recognize any instructor level course you take if your BIT is not current.

 

 

*It is highly recommended that Instructor Candidates be a member of the National Rifle Association prior to attending their NRA Instructor course.  If you are not currently a member, please (Click Here) to join at a course discount.
