Many people ask,
"Which Instructor Certifications Do I Need First?"

So, we have listed them in order beginning with #1.
If you have already been certified as an Instructor in a course subject,
simply move on to the next Instructor Certification #.

 
(Instructor Certification is available to both men and women!)
Remember, Instructors who have non- credentials to teach
Handgun Safety and Basic Courses
must become "Softer-Side-of-Shooting" Certified before being
accepted to participate in an Advanced Certification Instructor Course(s).


Please email or call (865-329-3293) with any questions.
Please take a moment to read the FAQ's and Registration Notes
at the Bottom of the page first though, Thanks!
