NRA Instructor Training

Shooting Sports Instructor Courses 

The Central Georgia Council is proud to begin offering NRA Instructor Courses in Rifle and Shotgun, as well as USAA Level 1 training for Archery. Be sure to read through all details before registering for each course. 

Please reach out to the Council Shooting Sports Chairman, Jim Bryan (jimbryan@outlook.com) and the Council Archery Chair, Jimmy Kieso (kiesoj@gmail.com) for specific questions. 

All students that become certified will be able to register one youth at an upcoming Camp Benjamin Hawkins event for free if they agree to help staff Shooting Sports programming at that event. (This excludes long-term camps, however Shooting Sports staff can get a discount for a youth participant.)

This training is normally $300 through a commercial trainer; therefore, we will require that all students help staff two events in the next two years
