Picture of Club Instructor (2-day)


The Club Instructor course is designed to provide experienced club members with the qualification that they need to be able to officially train new and existing shooters, within their own clubs, to the standards of safety and competence required by the NRA Safe Shooting System.  


Students can expect a busy two days. There is much to absorb in a relatively short time, and participation and discussion are encouraged throughout the course. The course is loosely structured around the NRA Probationary Course syllabus, but seen from the instructor’s point of view. It is deliberately not based on any shooting discipline, but is wide ranging in approach, starting by concentrating on the elements of safety which are common to all types of shooting. 


Topics include such things as communication skills and instructional techniques, as well as the use of firearms in a club context. Ballistics, how firearms work, different sighting systems, ammunition, ranges and other relevant aspects of the law are also covered.


Students are expected to demonstrate their knowledge and their ability to instruct by means of written tests and practical exercises.


This is a two-day course, each day running from 0830 - 1630. It is mainly classroom based, with some range work on day two.

Joining instructions with info on timings and location will be sent out around 2 weeks before the course date. 



It is a requirement that you pre-read the Probationary Training Manual before attending the course, found by clicking here.
