ScotShot LLC - NRA Certified Rifle Instructor.
This is a National Rifle Association accredited and certificated course.
ABOUT NRA CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR TRAINING
NRA Certified Instructor training is designed for experienced, skilled shooters who are committed to passing on the correct Knowledge, Skills and Attitude to individuals who are motivated to seek firearms training. The courses teach Instructor Candidates the NRA instruction method of "Total Participant Involvement" (T.P.I.), with an emphasis on positive reinforcement and student development.
Upon achieving a passing grade (90% or higher) in the final Instructor Candidate examination, and with the recommendation of the Training Counselor leading the course, candidates will communicate with NRA directly on-line and pay the NRA fee for issuing the certification. This fee is not included in the ScotShot fee(s).
THIS COURSE HAS PRE-REQUISITES
To enter this course you must have completed NRA Basic Rifle with a minimum 90% on the student exam and have an ability to shoot a passing score on the shooting qualification, from bench-rest, free-standing and prone positions, on demand. You should also have taken and passed the Basic Instructor Training (B.I.T., see below) module within the last two years. You should be functionally familiar with bolt-action, lever-action, pump-action and semi-automatic rifles and able to demonstrate safe gun handling at all times. The class requires a minimum of four Instructor Candidates to run (both B.I.T. and Certified Instructor).
PART 1: NRA BASIC INSTRUCTOR TRAINING - B.I.T.
In this first part, Instructor Candidates learn about the core skills required to teach NRA student-level courses, such as: introduction of speakers, use of visual and other teaching aids, the ethics of running a class and working with minor children, and how to plan, promote and advertise an NRA class. If obtained within two years of the discipline part (eg, below), then B.I.T. does not have to be retaken in order to add additional disciplines (however, ScotShot requires all Instructor Candidates to refresh themselves by resitting the B.I.T. examination). Instructor Candidates work in teams, alternating between presenting elements of the course to the other candidates, who offer constructive critiques, and playing the role of the students. Please note that the B.I.T. is not a certification in and of itself - but it must be passed in order to obtain a discipline certification. Please do not bring a firearm or ammunition to this class. Everything will be provided.
PART 2: NRA CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR - RIFLE
NRA Certified Rifle Instructors are able to qualify students in the NRA "Basic Rifle" and "FIRST Steps Rifle" courses. Instructor Candidates use mock class presentations and teaching scenario role-playing to acquire the skills necessary to teach the various aspects of basic rifle shooting, including the parts of a rifle, the common actions, including bolt-action, pump-action, lever-action and semi-automatic, the function of ammunition and its component parts, safe gun handling, loading and unloading, the rules for safe gun handling, the fundamentals of rifle shooting and the bench-rest and free-standing positions. On the range, Instructor Candidates will use the "Coach and Pupil" method to refine one anothers' skills in teaching a beginner student in their first shots with a rifle, and work with them to achieve the consistent groups necessary to satisfy the requirements of NRA Basic Rifle. Upon returning to the classroom, we discuss how students can build upon and improve their skills, and how to teach the optional student shooting positions of kneeling, sitting and prone. We conclude the course with the Instructor Candidate examination.
