Read what our students have to say about this course:
"One of the best classes I ever took. Matt was a very personable and knowledgeable instructor. This USCCA Instructor course far exceeds the NRA Pistol Instructor course. I plan on taking more courses from Matt and PS&ED." ~ Doug from Homer, NY about our USCCA Instructor Workshop
One of the best classes I ever took.
Upon successful completion of this workshop, candidates will be certified to offer certified state recognized USCCA Courses. NOTE: This course is not intended to make you a good shooter. This course is designed to make an experienced shooter a good instructor.
The USCCA Instructor Certification course is approximately a six to eight hour online course followed by a two days of classroom time including hands-on breakout sessions and a live-fire exercise. You will also cover the important skills needed to setting up and running your classroom and the range.
Michael Martin, Chief Instructor and author of Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, will review student materials provided in the Instructor Toolkit, identify important elements within the USCCA curriculum and present tips to maximize the use of multimedia materials. Students will learn common instructor mistakes and how to avoid them, and how to use PowerPoint to integrate the USCCA curriculum into their lessons. The course will also touch upon proper business and financial management.
