If you are ready to become a highly trained firearms instructor who is prepared to arm their students with an exceptional education then you are ready to become a USCCA Certified Instructor!


Join the ranks of the professional instructor and you can help teach people to become responsibly armed gun owners. Education is the key to dispelling the myths and untruths that we all face. As a certified instructor, you will have the knowledge and ability to safely teach gun owners about shooting, safe ownership, and safe (and legal) use of a firearm for self defense.


Please note: This course is not going to make you a better shooter. This course is designed to make the experienced shooter a good instructor.


The USCCA Instructor Certification course is approximately one day online and two days in the classroom and includes hands-on breakout sessions and a live-fire exercise. Ownership of the Instructor Toolkit is required. You will also cover the important skills needed to setting up and running your classroom and the range.
