16 Hours
Course Difficulty

Required Equipment:
For this class, you will need the following items:

  • Eye and ear protection
  • A hat with a brim
  • Multiple types of concealment garments (open front, closed front, etc)
  • Comfortable, range appropriate footwear and clothing
  • A working and reliable handgun of a defensive configuration
  • A reliable ‘strong side’ holster
  • A holster purse
  • 250 rounds of ammunition (minimum)
  • Notebooks for notes
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Lunch

THIS WILL BE A HANDS ON COURSE. There is a standard expectation that each instructor candidate must pass. You have to be fully comfortable with your firearm, know the safety rules without hesitation, and have a working knowledge of the defensive skillset from the PPOTH Student level class.


Note: As of 4/4/2012, ANY holster that utilizes the index or trigger finger of the shooting hand to disengage a locking device to release the handgun is now disallowed from ANY Rochester Personal Defense, LLC class, training, event, or any function that we host or have involvement with. I am also implementing the same on Tuesday Night’s CCW Shoot.

This course is designed to certify you to teach the knowledge, skills, and attitude contained in the Personal Protection Outside the Home curriculum. This workshop will cover BOTH the PPOTH Basic and PPOTH Advanced subject material.


This course is the latest offering from the NRA. Over ten years in the making, the NRA has compiled skills and information from many different sources. If you plan on teaching ANY defensive pistol training, this course is the one to make sure you have under your belt.
