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.


Rochester Personal Defense, LLC will be scheduling Shotgun Instructor Development Workshop classes regularly. If you are interested in becoming an NRA Instructor in pistol, rifle, shotgun, personal protection, CCW and more, please contact us and we will let you know how to get involved.


All candidates must attend the NRA Basic Shotgun course as a student and pass the required Pre Course Assessment. The Pre Course Assessment is given prior to the actual instructor training. This can be done separately or as part of the student course. If done separately, it can take approximately 2-3 hrs and would cost 75.00.
