Pistol Instructor Training

This is a two-phase training and participants must attend both phases. The course is limited to Scouting volunteers who are already certified National Rifle Association (NRA) instructors (either rifle, shotgun or muzzleloading). Course includes classroom and range time, and is intended only for Venturing, Sea Scouting, or Exploring adult leaders.

In addition to the course fee of $80.00, upon completion of the course, participants must register with the NRA to become certified (registering is not the same as joining). There is a $30-$50 fee to register; if you are an NRA member, you will pay the lower amount.

Dates for the next available course are May 5-6, 2023 and continuing on May 12-13. The first Saturday will be at the Fickett Center and the second Saturday will be at Lost Pines Scout Reservation.
