NRA Rifle Instructor

The NRA Rifle Instructor training course is among the most comprehensive of the instructor disciplines. The course starts with a discussion of the most popular rifle actions. Next comes ammunition, rimfire, centerfire with some discussion on black powder muzzleloaders. Then the course dives into all of the various positions: benchrest, standing (free arm and arm rest), prone, and then kneeling and sitting. How to teach the use of slings are covered and how to zero a rifle.

The second day, novice students are recruited for the instructor candidates to present their assigned topics. Then the instructor candidates are teamed up with a novice student and work them through the various positions. Then, after serious dry fire practice, the class will go to the range to proof the newly established skills of the students. Finally, the instructor candidates will take a written test to document their approved knowledge.
