NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course

DESCRIPTION:

The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation and is available for delivery in two ways. One option is the traditional, instructor-led course where you will receive direct instruction from an NRA-certified instructor from beginning to end. The other option has two components: a self-study or “eLearning module” which is completed online in your own timeframe and a hands-on practical portion conducted in a classroom and shooting range with an Instructor.

  • Instructor Led Only Training: The Instructor Led Only course takes place in a traditional classroom and range environment. This course may be completed in a single day format or over several days with smaller blocks of instruction.
  • Blended Training: The Blended training format provides students the flexibility to complete a significant portion of the course in an eLearning environment, prior to arriving for the classroom and range session with an NRA Certified Instructor. When you register for the blended course, you’ll create a unique username and password. Your instructor will provide you with a Course Control Code and directions to complete the self-study portion of the course prior to class date.
