The NRA Basic Instructor Training Course (BIT for short) is a 8 Hour objective based instructor prerequisite course that teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to teach any of the NRA's instructor 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: Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Personal Protection in the Home, Personal Protection Outside the Home, Range Safety Officer, Home Firearm Safety, Defensive Pistol. 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 an NRA course.

The NRA BIT course 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 be able to take a new discipline.

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 instructor course!
Overview:

Personal Protection in the Home Instructor Certification

This objective based course focuses on teaching the NRA Personal Protection in the Home class to students who are interested in learning how to protect their home. In order to take this course, the NRA requires instructor candidates to attend the Personal Protection in the Home class as a student, so they can grasp the methodologies and concepts of the student class. Instructor candidates must demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to teach the selected NRA discipline.  They must pass their Instructor Exam with a 90% or better.  Students must also successfully complete their discipline's Shooting Qualification in order to earn their official NRA Certified Instructor rating.  Approximately 9 Hours.
