Have you ever wondered what it takes to become an NRA-Certified Shotgun Instructor? It takes Knowledge, Skill, and Attitude. If you have all three, you may be a good candidate for the next Instructor Development Workshop (IDW).
Oftentimes, an NRA-Certified Shotgun Instructor is the first point of contact for a new shooter looking to learn about the shooting sports. That is an awesome responsibility to have. A good instructor will have a good approach to training, and possess a desire to help the new student succeed.


Rochester Personal Defense, LLC now has certified NRA Training Counselors that can teach new instructors to carry on the NRA tradition of providing safe gun-handling skills and education to the public. Our instructional methods have been used to create well-rounded students and instructors for other subjects and organizations.


All candidates must attend the NRA Basic Shotgun course as a student (Currently scheduled for February 21) and pass the required Pre Course Assessment.
