What's it take for an "NRA Junior Instructor" to become a "NRA Instructor"??
like the topic says, what does it take and lacking any paperwork who do i have to contact to find out what certs i have from many years ago?
does a Jr. Instructor become a "normal" instructor once they reach 18 or 21, or do they need to retake the courses from scratch? it was the same course... it was jus t the age of the students that determined if they were junior or not.
Not exactly sure on the Jr Instructor thing, but regular instructors need to keep their certifications updated every 3 years to stay current.
Active NRA Apprentice and assistant NRA Instructors can move up to the next level of NRA Certification if they have been assisting in the instruction of NRA classes on at least a yearly basis by having the Certified Instructor who they have been working with write a letter of reccomendation to the NRA Training Department.
Because many NRA Instructors have been called up to active military service since 9/11/2001, Inactivity does not have to be a disqualifier. Get as much information about the circumstances surrounding your apprentice certification together and call Mark Richardson at 703-267-1428. If Mark cannot help you, call me at 337-540-0551.
All it took was letter from the Man who did my instructor course. I took the course when I was 18. When I turned 21 he wrote the NRA a letter and they changed it.
