Competitive shooters and shooting teams are athletes and need to be coached like any other athlete. The goal of the Level 1 course is to provide individuals and coaches the knowledge, skills and confidence to coach beginning and intermediate shotgun shooting athletes and efficiently conduct team operations. The course is divided into classroom sessions and a range session. This is not the Basic Shotgun Instructor course, where students are taught generally one time to learn knowledge, skills, and attitude for safe shotgun handling. The coach will have a long-term involvement with athletes, providing leadership, character development and creation of better citizens as they learn how to compete as professionals. BIT is not required, no minimum shooting skill test.

NRA Member Benefit

credentialing fees are $30 for a 2- year term. Additional ratings are added at a rate of $10 per rating. Renewals are $30 for a 2-year term regardless of how many ratings are being renewed. Where trainers had both instructor and coach credentials expiring in different months/years, the closest date has been rolled up to the farthest date for the next renewal cycle. The ability to reprint certificates and ID cards with the extended expiration date occurred with the rollup. 

If you are not a NRA member, it is not a requirement but the system works better if you are. The certification fees are cheaper if you are a member. Get your NRA number/have it available before the class.
