Become a part of the team that helps deliver shooting sports to our Scouts! This course completes all of the requirements to become an NRA Certified Shotgun Instructor.

A current NRA instructor who is on the Council Approved Shooting Sports Instructor list and current NRA Range Safety Officers (RSO)s are required for a unit to open a shooting sports range at a council property. NRA Shotgun Instructors may also serve as Shotgun Merit Badge Counselors.

Participants must agree to assist the Gulf Stream Council, or their home council, by staffing at least 2 Council or District shooting sports events per year during the next two years.

Knowing how to shoot is an important requirement for NRA instructors, but you will also need to know how to teach others to shoot. NRA Instructor Training Courses help you develop the additional knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to organize and teach others.

Prerequisites: NRA Basic Instructor Training (BIT). Available for an additional fee of $50. Please register with the Instructor through the link provided. Basic and Instructor Certifications are separate. Students who already possess Basic Shotgun may present certification and only need to attend Instructor (and BIT, if applicable).

You will need to bring with you:

  • Water Bottle
  • Sack lunch (each day)
  • Wear Closed Toed Shoes
  • Current YPT Certificate
  • Current NRA Certifications

You will be outdoors for a significant period of time, mostly in the shade.

Adult leader Training Only - no guests or youth may be brought.
