I just completed the NRA Instructor Course.
Should get my certification card in a month or so!
Just so you know, the course was a PIA! It ain't easy! But then, "Life ain't easy if yer fat and grezzy!"
Congrats! Way to go.

Hitch King...Yeah, do NOT throw any of the material they give you away. I was definately NOT interested in one handout, so out it went..sure enough there was a test question answer within. You don't have to read it all overnight, but familiarize yourself on the way the books are organized. It's an open book test, but if are not familiar with the set up, you are totally screwed.
It is a three day course and my head hurt after each of the days.

I've taken a couple of one-on-one classes with an NRA instructor.

A LOT of information is thrown at you and you must make presentations of your own each day. I had three the second day and three the third day. The tests were very comprehensive and as stated above, until you get the hang of the outlines/books/handouts it is very confusing. I mean to tell ya, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I have 5 years of College Education and 10 years as an Army instructor, and it almost got the better of me. We had one guy on the third day throw down his test and rant that he didn't need all this pressure and didn't care if he got his certificate or not. After he calmed down (About an hour later) he went back and finished.
That's great. Congratulations!!
