By becoming a USCCA Instructor, you can arm your students with the highest quality materials to ensure they know how to safely handle their firearm. All of the materials needed to start instructing immediately are provided. Over 300 professionally done PowerPoints and 14 Videos are included. We focus on teaching you how to teach. Previous certifications are helpful, but not a requirement. Experienced shooters with solid safety skills and a desire to teach are welcome and encouraged to contact me. Phase 1 is eLearning with USCCA and then Phase 2 which is 2 days long.  Cost of $597 included $250 paid to USCCA for eLearning which is 8 hours of online learning prior to attending the course.  This eLearning requirement needs to be accomplished 2 weeks prior to the classroom dates.
